Packages designed during a University Project in the subject of Package Design. The aim of the project is to design a range of tea packages (rose tea, sage tea, cinnamon and cloves tea) for the company Shrubs. Shrubs is a company which produces natural products and herbs!
My aim was to design something classy, modern and minimal using colors such as black, white and gray. I only used color for some specific points. I used different materials for the packages which they can be recycled as well as paper and stickers for the labels. I used different graphic and typographic elements, such as experimental illustrations created out of newspapers for the outside label, and illustrations created out of photos taken of the actual tea for the inside. Each tea has a different package color (cap) as well as a different color on the illustration and name, something which helps the user distinguish the tastes.
All three tea packages along with a tea manual, flower seeds etc. are kept in a transparent modern box which also has different typographic labels on its sides. This box can later be used as a flower pot!
The languages used in the labels are both Greek and English. Both packages and labels created and designed by me.
