Honored to be receiving an Addy Award for the labels I created for Bird's Nest Baking Company's Sonoran Blend Granola. The prickly pear and sunset background were both painted using acrylics on canvas paper.
I updated the Bird's Nest Baking Company (BNBC) logo by changing a few things. I simplified the nest from it's previous version, changed the type treatment and added "Handmade in Tucson". I also laid out the back label which includes the ingredient list, nutrition chart and contact info for the company.
Linda Friedman, owner of BNBC, and I worked together over many months to create the new package design for all three of her flavors. Each had illustrated elements which capture the organic and tasty quality of her hand-made granola. Each flavor also has three sizes also.
Bird's Nest Baking Company's organic granola is available in a variety of places including Whole Foods Markets, AJs Fine Foods, and the Heirloom Farmer's Market.
I really enjoyed this process and I look forward to helping others develop their packaging in the future!
Contact me if you'd like to discuss your project.  - Julie Rustad
