These three designs are a result of a collaboration with my friend Pepe Moscoso, a cultural arts producer and artist. Pepe, originally from León, Guanajuato, México, also creates a Mexican cooking sauce (green and red variations) from scratch.
While he considered marketing his cooking sauce, I worked with him to create the brand identity of the product. Packaging design mockup, 2017.
ROLE: Graphic Designer, Packaging Design
PURPOSE: Pepe showed interest in using a minimalist and vintage style design for his company’s brand identity. In Portland, Oregon, salsas and cooking sauces made by local companies abound, and therefore we decided to deviate from typical ‘vibrant’ and ‘colorful’ label design and instead use a tight color palette and fewer design elements, when possible.
OUTCOME: Ultimately, Pepe chose not to package and sell his cooking sauces.
