A new Look for 2015

Having studied and then worked in design for most of my life, packaging plays an extremely important roll to me. 2014 saw me start my business on smaller quantities using a a cost effective handwritten washi tape label. This was effective in a crafty home made way and worked well for me for the year.

 

Washi Tape Labeling

 

 

As my quantities are growing, to hand write each label has become a time constraint issue. 2015 sees a more refined look for ABF.  The brief given to talented Durban based graphic designer and friend, Paul Bragason ( who also did an amazing job designing the ABF Logo )  was to follow the washi tape formula but in a a muted natural colour pallet. Each product label was to  have it’s own designer pattern allocated to it.  Paul designed a  ‘Angela’s Backyard farming’ signature font – which way outshines my nasty handwriting.

The new look is modern, clean and stylish –  Let me know if you love it as much as I do.
