For this post I have decide to continue with my packaging theme. I have the products, but I need to advertise them. I have created some mock-up adverts which would go into magazine or something similar.
Everything had been created using Adobe Photoshop.
After posting the advert I discovered I can still improve so I changed the paragraph to justify last left and also made the bottle bit darker.
Art is always work in progress and I see the design in a same way.
Now the real thing, the actual magazine.
Anthophila is scientific name for a bee.
The Honey bee is probably the best-known bee around, but
over 270 species of bee have been recorded in Great Britain. Honey bees
and bumblebees live socially, led by a queen and serviced by male
drones and female worker bees.
Solitary bees tend to be smaller and their family unit is made up of a single pair. Although lots of solitary bees can be found in one area, they operate alone. Bumblebees are distinguished by their large furry bodies and species include the black and-yellow striped Garden bumblebee and Red-tailed bumblebee. Solitary bees include mason bees, leaf-cutter bees and mining bees. The Wool-carder bee strips hair from plants to weave its nest, while the Red mason bee lives inside hollow plant stems and holes in wood.
Since 1900, the UK has lost 13 species of bee, and a further 35 are considered under threat of extinction. None are protected by law. Across Europe nearly 1 in 10 wild bee species face extinction.
The outlook for bees right now is quite bleak – and their drop in numbers is a sign of the plight of the natural world as a whole. Across society, we often undervalue nature and what it does for us. The truth is, if we want an economy that provides for everyone’s needs in the long term, we need to look after our natural environment. Our politicians need to understand the importance of protecting the natural world – and protecting bees as key players in it. We’re optimistic we can make a difference – see what you’ve already helped us achieve so far.
During the last few posts I have been exploring packaging. With this post the theme is the same, but it is not a food.
I have picked skin care products.
Lately I have done few post featuring honey and bees. With this post I am returning to the same theme. Everything you can see been created in Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator.
“Honey is the oldest skin-care ingredient and has been used extensively for both medical and skin-care purposes,” confirms Neil Sadick, MD, the very skin-serious founder of Sadick Dermatology in New York.
If you’ve got skin issues, honey’s a great go-to because it tackles many of the major ones: “It has antibacterial properties, anti-inflammatory properties, and it nurtures the skin. Honey’s particularly suitable for sensitive skin,” Dr. Sadick says.
You might not think of the thick, sweet stuff as a salve for breakouts, but honey’s antibacterial powers are so strong that it can help acne. “Honey has a very low pH, so a lot of bacterias cannot survive in honey,” says Carla Marina Marchese, the founder and beekeeper behind Red Bee Honey. “It’s about a 3.5 on average on the pH scale, and a lot of bacteria needs to thrive in closer to a 7 on the scale.”
