I am an avid user of mobile apps therefore I have a great opportunity to explore the user experience of hundreds of apps through my iPad, iPhone and Android devices.
EMK Productions Director Eamon Crosby came to me with a concept to bring together young talented Irish musicians and dancers and showcase them to the world. His brief was straight forward enough; To make the brand for Celtic Crossroads look fresh and modern yet married in some respect to the traditions of Irish Music and Dance.
EMK Productions were so happy with the initial look of the DVD and CD covers that they decided to create complimentary souvenir programs and a show website. I designed all the graphics. Produced all the artwork for the printed material and detailed all the prepress work. I also hand coded the website.
Suslainte is comprised of two Gaelic words. ‘Su’ is juice and ‘Slainte’ is health. So the concept here was to brand and market a juice specific to the Irish market. SuSlainte or Health Juice.
I first designed the logo then explored its application to packaging. Shown here is a package for orange juice only however the finished product will combine fresh native Irish herbs and fruits to the base juice. So blackberry juice or nettle tea could be added to the juice.
