Amazingly beautiful woodblock print on a Sheng PuEr tea wrapper. I like how the tea leaves changed the color of paper around the picture in 8 years.

Logo design for a Russian Lion Dance crew and their Chinese teahouse. From the start I had a challenge to combine several absolutely different symbols in one logo, first of all the client wanted to see a steam of freshly brewed tea that coming out of Gaiwan (Chinese tea brewing bowl). Besides that the logo should somehow represent the Lion Dance as well. Challenge accepted!
As usual I want to share with you my logo development process. First I started with some tea.
Tea + steam + Gaiwan
Rough sketch of the idea.
Trying to combine both elements in one design.
I’m happy to announce the packaging we designed for a “Chara” tea brand, based in Singapore. The company producing top quality organic tea in Yunnan, China. Here is a short intro from them:
It is believed that about a thousand years ago, tea first spread across China and Asia from its origins in Pu’er through a network of paths known as the Tea Horse Road or 茶马道. Today, Pu’er county and its nearby areas still produce some of the finest teas in the world. In Chara, you will experience the highest quality puer tea from old tea trees; absent of any form of chemical fertilisers – yes, Chara’s puer is organic!
