Making Jam – Part 3

by Mark on 08/6/2006

Having successfully made my first lot of jam I was keen to label it up, being a graphic designer meant of course I would have to design my own! I’m a great fan of those 1950s fruit crate labels and so tracked down some inspiration. I’d taken a digital pic of a hastily arranged basket of apricots before I made the jam, so using the Watercolour filter in Photoshop I quickly turned it into an illustration before adding some period type, Underground font from P22 along with a really nice script font Liorah. Think I’ll use the design as a templte for all my other jams, just change the image each time.
