Check out cindi9's Product label contest…
Food & Drink
Elderberry Syrup Kit
Description of the product
Elusive Queen is a small business start-up focusing on all things honey bee related, located on a farm in Roan Mountain, Tennessee. We sell an artisanal, small batch line of products that includes wildflower honey, 100% pure beeswax candles and beeswax wrap, a reusable alternative to Saran wrap. We value the traditions of the past with a focus on healthy living in the present. Our contest is focused on an Elderberry Syrup DIY kit (a dry kit with a just add honey, organic apple cider and water message) to sell more honey. Product comes in 2 sizes.
Description of the product target audience
Our target audience is a health-conscious female, 30 years and above who is college educated with a comfortable amount of disposable income. She knows that a higher price is usually indicative of higher quality and she is interested in investing in good health and natural ingredients.
Concept should allow for future products labels to include honey (variety of infusions), beeswax candles and beeswax wrap. Winner of this contest will go on to design labels as needed. 1) Target is to attract customer's eyes before the customer begins to read the packaging. 2) The customer must feel that the product is much better than usual one. Image brings the feeling that the product is intellectual and made/distributed by educated and cultured people. So its quality is very high. 3) The overall feeling is "craft". It brings the feeling that the product is not mass produced with preservatives, GMO's, gluten, etc. The feeling is that product is made by a craft company where the company's owner directly participates in the production and distribution process. So the quality is guaranteed. 4) Natural feeling. No bold colors, but colors are very perceptible. Create a retro style label, bright enough to fit the modern customer's taste. I am looking for a balance between sophisticated/elegant yet playful and fun. Botanical and mystical elements are in keeping with the idea of Elusive Queen. Color I like black line drawings with punctuations of color. I like red..turquoise or teal..
