Meagan at Mistral got their new product label by running a design contest:
Product label needed for Mistral Kitchen's Mole sauce
Check out Meagan at Mistral's Product label contest…
We are a restaurant located in Seattle, WA; we serve high end cuisine and cocktails, and are about to launch our first product to be sold in stores and online, a Mole sauce that is popular at our restaurant.
What's your vision?
We're about to launch our first product to be sold in stores, a jarred Mole sauce that is popular at the restaurant. It is a unique recipe that has been developed over the years since we opened in 2009. While this is a sauce which originated in Mexico, we are not a Mexican restaurant. We do eclectic and diverse dishes, our menu changes daily, and we draw on the flavors we love from different countries and cuisines. We source local ingredients as often as we can, but also search the globe for unique spices or ingredients we can't "grow" in Washington state. Please check out our website to get a feel of our restaurant http://www.mistral-kitchen.com. We plan to jar this Mole sauce in roughly an 8 oz jar, which should be enough for 4 servings as it is meant to be served, alongside chicken, pork, vegetables and grains, or dolloped onto eggs. This is not a "simmer sauce" that engulfs the whole plate of food. It is an artisan product, "special". We need the label for this product designed, and I point out that we're not a Mexcian restaurant, but a very modern chef-driven restaurant with more products to come that will have nothing to do with Mexican flavors. This label would ideally be a jumping off point for our other products down the line, and should incorporate our logo, which I'll provide. We have two logos for your reference, one says Mistral Kitchen, and one just says "M". We use the turquoise color for our business cards, etc, but I'm open to it being in any color for the product packaging.
The jar we've chosen is a 9 oz jar, see photos attached. The front surface of the jar is 2 1/2" wide x 2 1/2" tall. The jar is a hexagon, again see photos. So, the label will most likely be one on the front and one on the back. Potentially it could wrap around the front onto the next surface, which is 1" wide x 2 1/2" tall. Mole is a dark, reddish-brown sauce, with these ingredients: 5 different chiles, caramelized onions, blackened tortillas (for thickening) chicken stock, pepitas, black & white sesame seeds, peanuts, spices (star anise, cinnamon, bay leaf, allspice, clove) black garlic, extra virgin olive oil, tomatoes, and Mexcian chocolate. At the restaurant we usually serve it alongside oven roasted chicken, vegetables and faro (grain). And sometimes with eggs and greens at brunch. I've attached a pic of the chicken dish. On this particular day the mole was served with chicken, delicata squash, and the white stuff on top of the mole is ricotta cheese, with a sprinkling of pepitas and sesame seeds. The label WILL NOT have this photo on it, it's just for your reference.
