soapbartender got their new product packaging by running a design contest:
Help A Wild Soap Bar Find Their WILD Side!

Cosmetics & Beauty
Safe, natural, and enjoyable are three words that motivate us here at A Wild Soap Bar. Since 1995, our goal has been to provide truly natural soaps and body care products handmade with real ingredients that are safe for all living things and a joy to use while raising awareness of the many benefits of using responsibly wild-crafted and organically grown botanicals. 1% of our profits are donated each year to the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center and to Clean the World.
What's your vision?
With this package redesign, we want to emphasize the botanical nature of our organic soaps and bodycare products. Each one is based around a native plant, that's where the "wild" comes in. We're looking for a CLEAN and SIMPLE design with black print/graphics on a cream colored background (please, no other colors!). We like the idea of a botanical pen and ink drawing of the native plant incorporated into the front panel (perhaps it would artfully wrap around the side also?), but we are open to other ideas as well. WOW US! We do not want to use the burlap ribbon or the Living Clay logo found on our old design. We like our current word logo and 100% REAL stamp, but we are also looking for some fresh new ideas on these components....possibly just some new fonts? Or maybe a radical change? Again, we're open. We do want to keep our tag line "take a wash on the wild side!". We have 20 different soaps and each one will need a different botanical drawing, but we will hire a local artist to do the actual drawings if that ends up being in our final design. The soap with the longest name is Pine Tar Neem so figure that in the space allotted for the soap name. Our products are sold in Whole Foods Market and other natural grocery chains as well as small boutiques across the US, so this design must appeal to an upscale, natural and organic crowd.
I'm including some files for your reference. Let me know what else you might need. The font on our current logo is "poopchute bold" and the tag line font is "editor", but again, we are open to changes. The sunflower graphic I included is to give you an example of the general style of botanical line drawing that we like. Our soap box is a "half box" or "tray" that leaves the top of the soaps exposed with their beautiful whipped textures and earthy colors. The front & back panels of the box measure about 3 5/8" wide by 1 3/4" tall. The side panels are 7/8" deep. You can see our products at http://www.awildsoapbar.com. We are currently redesigning our website too with a cleaner and simpler minimalist design.
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Product packaging starts at $449.

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their product packaging.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
soapbartender collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Nathan was a pleasure to work with. He has great design skills and excellent communication skills. He jumped right in and was the first one to submit a design which put him ahead of the pack. He made every revision we asked for (mostly font changes) and then some, and he responded quickly and professionally each and every time. A job well done, Nathan!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
