dshawnr got their new product packaging by running a design contest:
Modern Sophisticated Candle Package and label Design for Southern Elegance Candle Company
Check out dshawnr's Product packaging contest…
Southern Elegance Candle Company is a small local candle business located in very small town, Raeford, NC. We create hand poured soy candles. These candles celebrate everything there is to love about the South: the aromas, the flavors, the traditions and the storied cities. Each candle is named after a Southern city with a fragrance that is reflective of its Southern Roots. Our target audience is female that lives in the suburbs, that has completed college. She has a comfortable amount of disposable income and has an annual household income of over $100,000. She knows that a higher prices usually indicates higher quality. She is probably married with kids and job outside of the home. She has a large home in a nice neighborhood. She is well put together and sophisticated. She drives a luxury car and shops in high end boutiques.
What's your vision?
I need a box and label designed for the candle packaging. The box has dimensions of 3.5 x 3.5 x 4 I would like one design for all the boxes. I will add a small color coded label to identify the scents, somewhere on the box. I would like something with bold colors but not too modern. I need a box that really pops on the shelf. Something modern but not too edgy. I imagine richer, deeper colors, and a simple label. Something has a kick of traditionalism and warmth. The two fonts in my logo are Media Gothic and Notera. (But you do not have to use them) Label 2 in by 1 inch. There is a picture below of what the candle container currently looks like. Candle Cities: (Southern Destinations Collection) Charleston: Sweet Tea.Currant Lexington: Apples.Bourbon Miami: Citrus Raleigh: Pine Savannah: Peach New Orleans: Magnolia Columbia: Clean Cotton San Saba: Pecan.Caramel Durham: Vanilla.Tobacco Nashville: Honeysuckle Hampton: Ocean Breeze ** These are the current cities but I need a box design that is very flexible and I can change the scents as needed** These candles are 100% Soy candles. Hand poured in small batches 8 oz and burn about 55 hours. This packaging will need to accommodate a changing line of scents so design with that in mind please. This is a 4 color process. That means 4 colors max total. White is a color.
I love the dark feel of http://tatinecandles.com, but they are too dark and I like the feel of http://linneaslights.com. If we could somehow blend those two looks together. (I know... two opposites) Here is my Pinterest board of packaging that I like. https://www.pinterest.com/secandleco/packaging-ideas/
