Gordan designed my book cover. His design was in a group of about 50 submissions. It stood out among the rest of them and also mirrored my design brief. Working with Gordan is a pleasure on every level. He is a real pro. I can't recommend him highly enough. He deserves a perfect 10 score from me.
It's so nice to work together, great communication.
Artist submitted a variety of designs to consider. Good Eye. Happy to make changes. Easy to work with.
How Mike Beaker started their product label journey
Who are you known as?
What industry do you think your business is most related to?
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
We manufacture an organic fertilizer additive that we sell to distributors in asia. We have several products as follows:
NEB-V for vegetables
NEB-T for trees/orchards
NEB-P for paddy rice
Sugar Maxx for sugar cane
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
I need four labels, one for each product (NEB-V, NEB-T, NEB-P and Sugar Maxx). However, I would like to start with ONLY ONE LABEL. Lets start with only NEB-V. After the one label design is complete, we can then use that format/style to complete the other three.
Please start with NEB-V label which is targeted for vegetables.
The color code for our product line is as follows:
NEB-V for vegetables --- green
NEB-T for trees/orchards ---- maroon
NEB-P for paddy rice --- dark blue
NEB-88 for grapes --- yellow
Farmers in asia like pictures and some farmers are not literate. So the label must include many pictures of crops that the product is intended for. Some farmers simply look at the label to confirm the product is intended for certain crops. Thus, the top 7 crops will have pictures on the label.
The sample label that I have is square shaped. We use if for a large 10 L container. However, what I need is a label that will go on 150 ml bottle. Thus, we need a rectangle shaped label. The center of the rectangle will be the center of the bottle. This will be the logo, branding, pictures and very little text. On the sides (that will wrap around the bottle) will be the application instructions and other text.
Please design the label that way.
I included the logo for NEB-V as well.
I also include a couple labels that I like with comments.
