THE HERBALIST


This project is one I have won a Bronze award for in the Starpack Students Competition 2015. It was a brief that required entrants to design a grow your own herb kit.
I chose the target audience of 20-30 year olds, as the trending culinary scene grows from this age group and is very interested in growing their own food. Believing that cooking can be seen as a form of healing and gaining comfort, I looked at more homeopathic and rather spiritual methods of cooking, looking at the shape of crystals and terrariums that are used to grow plants to base my packaging structure from.
The illustrations are inspired from scientific sketches in biology books by Darwin and Ernst Haeckel and the actual herbs included are those for making tea; peppermint, lemon balm and chamomile.
