Figures / Logo illustration for concept packaging
What I need help with is putting together a packaging design for a chilli product. It is made by a producer in Thailand, where it is sold as more of an ingredient, and I want to repackage it and sell it as a snack over here. I have had no contact with them yet, but when I do approach them, I want to have something to present them with.
If the approach is successful, then there will be further work in doing a final design for the packaging.
I’ve come up with the idea of having illustrated figures holding oversized chillies surrounding the logo. I think having some illustrations of some crumbs of the snack, red and green, would look good, perhaps more around the logo rather than in amongst the illustrations of the people.
If you are interested I can send you the following attachments, but it’s not giving me the option to do it at the moment.
Attachment 1 - I paid someone on UpWork to put something together for me, which I’ve attached and that I’m not very happy with (although admittedly I did only pay $50 for it!). I think it’s shown that I’m going to need an illustrator to help rather than a normal designer.
Attachment 2 - Ideas board
Attachment 3 - Larger image of the style of illustration that I have in mind. I think the illustrations need to look a bit more grown up in order to make it clear that the product is aimed at adults rather than children.
Attachment 4 & 5 - photos of the product
Attachment 6 - Early amateur sketch of the design I had in mind before my brother came up with the idea of the figures. I no longer like the idea of having ‘i’s’ as chillies, but it hopefully shows you what I mean about the crumbs being around the logo. For some reason I imagine the background being a shade of cream/yellow.
