quart packaging, manaPackaging design for sustainably produced, environmentally friendly, organic, vegan, handmade, small batch, wholefoods company.The first product line was based on Mason jars. The logic was stylistic and practical: reasonably light weight, rigid, readily available bases which happened to be embossed with measuring marks. The customer was able to preform the first 2 steps of the recipe within the packaging.The labels were developed to be as inexpensive and environmentally friendly as possible. Due to concerns about printed label production–the amount of energy used, the material printed on, the eco-hazards of the inks, etc–we opted for simple lazerjet printing on wind-produced, 100% recycled paper. The labels were punched with wholes, then corset tied around the top of the jar with baker's twine made of organic cotton, produced in the United States.

spice packets, mana in our foodsOur spice packets were created as a leave behind for store keepers. Each jelly jar contained a three packets of hand-layered spices, wrapped in a simple printed sleeve indicating the recipe, ingredients, production facility address, packaging date, and allergen warnings. They were grouped in jelly jars equipped with branded stickers. The line was discontinued prior to the development of the website.

bag designsGradually, pricing concerns forced the product to evolve to a bag basis. We were able to source plasticine bags made of bamboo fiber. Identical in look and feel to plastic, the bags are actually compostable.
