So my friend Ashley kept raving about this hot sauce his girlfriend's aunt was making and he decided to bottle it for her. So naturally he needed a label for the bottle, right? The name of the sauce was to be "Auntie Guori's Caribbean Hot Sauce" and since she was from Trinidad, we should incorporate the red and black from the flag into the label. "Make it look Carribean" he said. After some research, I decided I liked the idea of "hand-drawn" type. Now, when I say that, I mean,draw the type, scan it in and then trace it point by point in Illustrator. I went to work on the logo and came up with a habanero pepper with the type inside along with two alternate ideas. Happily for me, the pepper was chosen. Then it was time to work on the label. After getting the copy from Ashley, I had to figure out how it would work on a 3" x 5" space and be legible at the same time. I decided the best way would be to separate it by subject (ingredients, where it was made, contact info) into sections and draw the type so it fit within the space. It took forever, but I got it done and I think Ashley was pretty happy with it. Stay tuned for photos of the finished product!
