For Christmas this year Wendy and I (aka ‘KWendy’) made homemade Chipotle Hot Sauce, as a gift for some friends and family. It came out really good, we love it. Our recipe is included below in case you are interested. To bump up the presentation a little, I put my design skills into these labels for it.
Kwendy’s Chipotle Hot Sauce Label
The finished label has two versions:
To come up with ideas for the label, I spent a few minutes looking online at real hot sauce labels. From my research I came up with a few basic elements, mainly the pepper illustration and wood background that I wanted to include in the design. With those elements in hand I went to town in Photoshop to pull it all together. I removed the dried pepper from the illustration, and gave the upper 1/2 of the wood a burnt effect. Then put it all together.
