Spring is here (I'm told) and with summer just around the corner, it seemed a good time to share the packaging project I worked on with Noted
I had wanted to work with Doug at Noted for a while and was delighted to be commissioned to create some packaging for the tops of their new Grow-Bag kits.
I was given lots of free reign with these and only had to keep in mind that they should co-ordinate with the bag colours: Yellow (Sunflowers), Red (Peppers) and Orange (Pumpkins).
Here are my first round of roughs. I mostly work in colour for sketches, and often directly into Photoshop. It really helped to create a little mock-up to see which labels worked and which ones definitely didn't!
As I wanted to create a consistent look across the range, it made sense to keep the colour-scheme simple. We both liked the yellow and black, so the next stage was to create the other two labels in a co-ordinating style.
