Working for a startup company is where i fell in love with sticky notes. Their colorfulness, their versatility, and the statement they make.
So i chose to design my spice package with inspiration from my sticky friends, and their startup vibe.
. I investigated.
At first, I researched the shape of the sticky notes. They are square and and an easy size for writing, they are lean, like a startup.
secondly, I wanted the colors to show through, so I created a window through which the package naturally reflects the vibrant colors of the spices.
Lastly, I researched the world of middle eastern patterns and tried to match the colors and atmosphere to that of each spice. A very hot spice would reflect a much livelier pattern.
For the package’s material I chose a compostable, eco-friendly cardboard, representative of the middle eastern culture and land. The package’s color is a neutral brown to accentuate the spice’s natural colors.
The packages will stick anywhere in your kitchen, and turn it as lively and as vivid as the middle eastern they were inspired from.
