Contest Brief

This project is to refine a coffee label design for an organic, small-batch specialty roasting company. We are shifting from using a box to a bag with a label. To see the old design and vibe, scroll down to our image gallery at: [url removed, login to view]

The label has all of the necessary elements on it but we would like it have more of an indie vibe that represents the brand of the company.

This art work will be placed on the front and back of a craft coffee bag as a label. The look we are going for is a slight retro / vintage / indie hand crafted look to both files.

You can see how the labels will be applied to the bag in the attached images.

To see the look that we like, please visit my pinterest board at: [url removed, login to view]

The coffee company logo and the espresso blend logo both need to be on the label.

**** UPDATE ****

1. The paper that the labels will be printed on is already textured.

To see the paper, go to: [url removed, login to view]

2. The ink/finish is matte.

3. We want everything that is white to be the paper only.

4. Dimensions are 3 in x 4 in. For visual reference, the label will be printed with rounded corners but the artwork does not need to have the rounded corners. The printer will handle that.

    All, thank you for your submissions but before anymore time is spent I'd like to clarify the direction. The paper is textured already so we are not seeking a texture applied to the flat image. The paper itself will provide that. We are looking to have some of the individual elements on the label slightly stylized in a retro, vintage, hipster, indie vibe. AN example of this can be seen at https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.creativemarket.com/images/screenshots/products/15/158/158650/1-o.jpg?1407747267
