“Beekeeper” is a unique thyme honey produced by the company “Ergastiri Meliou” with an eye-catching packaging design made of wood, acrylic paint and white tulle. This innovative packaging was designed to be exhibited at the 5th “Oh, it’s so souvenir to me!”. An exhibition which presents contemporary touristic souvenirs designed by modern Greek designers.
The illustration of the “Beekeeper” is minimal and modern, with simple forms and a white-black-grey monochromatic aesthetic, which depicts a beekeeper wearing his working uniform.
Inside the wooden box there is a glass jar which contains 250ml of the highest quality Greek thyme honey. The label of the jar matches the aesthetic qualities of the wooden box but also, an interesting color contract is created. Its minimal monochromatic illustration depicts the beekeeper in a gold geometric design on a total black background, contrasting the domination of the white color of the box.
