Aditya completely blew me away with her creative idea. She really seems to understand who we are and what we were trying to do.
Maja is a really talented professional, very patient, does everything above and beyond, pleasure to work with. Will gladly work with her again and will definitely recommend

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
We need innovative packaging design as well as label designs for a range foods for Japanese Koi carp. A generic bag needs to be designed that can be used for 4 product name over-stickers (on front) and 4 thermal-transfer over-stickers (on back). care should be taken not to use photo's of koi as breeders and potential clients may judge the product based on the quality of the koi used on the photo (see example attached as an example of typical use of generic fish images (from designer kingmanson presented in a previous open contest).
A Japanese type of "look and feel" may be preferred by clients but designers may use their own creativity to submit a unique design
A maximum of 4 colours can be used on the generic bag design
Suggested die-lines / bag-dimension should also be provided. Our preference for use is a resealable bag of 600mm x 330mm with gussets.
Although our Brand AQUAGEM is associated with "living jewels" - that Koi are often referred to as, please do not use any images of gemstones on the packaging.
The buyer of koi food is a "serious" buyer and expect from their food to be the best for very ex[pensive fish
