Behind the scenes:

This project asked for the design and illustration of a label for a home made chilli sauce. The product design, concept, bottling and even name was left to my own accord. ‘Mongobo’ is the zulu word for ‘sauce,’ zulu being the heritage of Paulina (the lady who makes the sauce). ‘I Makers Lab’ is the orginisation who supports Paulina in her cooking endevours, hence the ‘I Make’ in the name. The hands stirring the sauce and holding the chillie in the label illustration are Paulina’s hands, and the glass bottles chosen to hold the sauce are bottles that are easy to come by for Paulina via recycling iniatives.
