Food Label Design

Labels for homemade cherry wine

Together with my partner I produced two batches of cherry wine already. We made it from homegrown cherries provided by friends and family. The first batch was made of a mix of sweet and sour cherries (those are the lighter bottles). For the second batch we used sour cherries only (the darker ones). Both times we came up with about 20 liters of wine, which we filled into 1l bottles. Of course, I had to design some labels for them.

You can see the wine labels here. I also included an image of the work in progress for the first labels, which I painted by hand. I scanned in the drawings and arranged the cherries digitally.

You’d like me to design some custom wine labels for you?

Labels for homemade kimchi

In January 2021 I made my own kimchi for the first time (I used red cabbage instead of the traditional Chinese cabbage). We were in the middle of the second strict lockdown and at some point boredom settles in. So you start looking for new hobbies.

We all need to eat anyhow and the restaurants are closed as well, so it stands to reason to produce your own food. And that’s how it came that I got into fermenting.

The living room was smelling funny for a few days, but apart from that everything went quite well. Out of one large red cabbage head I produced three huge and three medium-sized jars of red cabbage kimchi – enough to justify the creation of another fodo label design. Because of the different sizes and shapes of the jars I hade to make sure that the label is easily adjustable. That’s why I went with a seamless pattern featuring the ingredients.

During the creative process many other food patterns were born as well. They can be used for other purposes, for example to be printed on kitchen aprons or other textiles.
