Fictus Farm: Illustrative Type Packaging

For this self-initiated project, I decided to explore a set of letter designs that expressed a clean, contemporary style. Inspired by farmers’ markets I'd visited in Sydney, I decided to produce some typographic labelling for flavoured vinegars and an oil.

The letters were first sketched in pencil to explore various concepts and shapes. Then each letter was redrawn in Glyphs  and decorated in Illustrator. The designs reference old manuscripts, Mexican sugar skulls and photos from a recent trip to Indonesia.

 

I designed five labels in all. Each flavour of oil or vinegar is represent with a letter.
