9/7/2014 5:42:162) brush strokesI imagine whether the label would encourage or discourage placing the bottle on display in any given setting. Unquestionably, the minimal "brushstrokes" design lends itself to displayThank you, I hope that this bottle will be displayed!

9/7/2014 5:43:232) brush strokes2 conveys "Japanese" but is not a pastiche. It also has elegant and I think more likely to appeal to the sort of person likely to buy this productActually I agree it is elegant (Junko Matsui designed it) and I like also the crafty touch of the fabric pattern on the frame. I hope that all the japanese lovers will like it!

9/7/2014 5:59:37sandblasted on handblown glass bottleUse No 2 but make the container look like it contains valuable contents. Use simple natural materials and methods. Glass and sandblasted label will do.

KInd regards,

Ton
Dear Ton: it is a very good advice. I think I will use standard brown glass with a drop cap for preserving/shipping reasons but the idea of sandblasting is a killer! I have to look into the cost issue...

9/7/2014 6:52:072) brush strokesThe second one is the only one that is very easy to read; the rest are maybe too cluttered. It is also the most peaceful, like soaking in a hinoki tub. And the brush strokes are very beautiful.I agree with you. Some other people choose also other options but for the people who kindly shared comments, it is almost a plebiscitary vote for the brush strokes!

9/7/2014 7:31:221) genji-monogatari styleI like 1 & 2 best. Difficult to decide without seeing it against the bottle. What colour is the bottle? Instructions easier to read on 1 I think.
The bottle is brown. Also blue and green are available and provide a good screening against UV but I think that the brown color makes it more classy. Maybe I should consult with everybody about the bottle color...

9/7/2014 10:05:08Using hinoki imagery.As a graphic designer living and working in Japan, I am perhaps too critical in my judgement, but I am not convinced by the label designs you have presented so far. I imagine that this oil is being marketed for overseas customers, who may appreciate a traditional Japanese image, but I don't sense the very special quality of the oil itself as the imagery is somewhat disconnected. Have you considered making a case for the oil bottle, made out of hinoki? If you stamped the case with your 'バルトックデザイン' hanko, it could be incredible. A simple sticker holding the information and barcode could be applied too. Just a thought...Well, it would be great if you can share your proposal. But given that the production of the oil is at-cost, it will have to be a free contribution... I like the idea of the box. If I reach a certain milestone, I am willing to provide a pawlonia box for the set.

9/7/2014 10:35:192) brush strokesI think it needs to have some Japanese writing, other than your seal. And I like the background of the hinoki flake. The ukiyoe and genji are too touristy for my liking. And you may have copyright issues?
My next favourite image is the plane, but the overall design doesn't have enough Japanese-ness to it.
I like the plane also, but I think that the second conveys better the idea of the "ancient" wood...

9/7/2014 12:52:202) brush strokesif it is about japan and relaxation I think that the brown + brush strokes is the best combo. Number one and 3 do not give me the "japan" idea. and number 4 is too much overused in so many places :D

Thanks, you bring clarity in this uncertain world ...: >

9/7/2014 16:36:232) brush strokesHinoki 250 Oil. Do not use the word 'old'.
antique and elegant brown
I am trying to make a parallel with spirits. A special reserve whisky has also the indication "years old". Otherwise, what is the alternative?

9/7/2014 22:10:312) brush strokesHinoki 300 or maybe even Hinoki 3000 without the words "years old"

or Hinoky 17th Century ( sounds sophisticated )
antique and elegant brown
well, most of the hinoki we use is 300 years old. But the certifications we have are for 250 y.o.
If I do not use the word "years old", don`t u think that people would be confused. Maybe they will think it indicates the purity of the product or something like that.

9/7/2014 23:26:392) brush strokesPlay around with fonts. None of these fonts quite set the right time to me...
antique and elegant brown
OK, this is just a draft. What do you think? serif or sans serif?

I know the graphics are a work in progress, but it their current state they feel a little amateur & do not reflect the singular elegant experience that a buyer of this product will receive.
antique and elegant brown
Thanks. Please contact me. I would love if you can make a concrete proposal for the labels.

9/9/2014 22:51:052) brush strokesProtection of the product would be my concern so I chose brown glass. I have always liked simple elegance and tried not to clutter our crowd labels or designs of my own in the past, the brush strokes label is just that simple yet attractive design.
antique and elegant brown
Thanks. I hope that we can improve the design. But it seems to be the right way...
