Creative brief

The buyer added updates to the brief. Read them.

Business Name

Zen Tea

What do you do?

We are developing a super premium loose leaf tea brand that will be sold in bamboo cylinders. The cylinders will have the logo, story and barcode all laser etched onto them to create an attractive yet eco friendly design. The customer will be able to use the bamboo cylinder for something else once the tea has been consumed. We would like to have our brand and concept shine through our business cards, so we have decided to also use bamboo wood and have our design directly laser engraved as well just like the product's packaging.

The size and shape of the business cards can be anything you feel works effectively, but a square or rectangle shape would be the most functional for obvious reasons. However anything is possible, and I love edgy and bold designs.

What is the exact name you would like in your stationery?

Zen Tea

You'll receive designs for biz cards, letterhead and envelopes.

Some more information that might be useful.

The tea is from Taiwan

The tea has GABA
Gamma-aminobutyric acid

The tea is beneficial for people that have ADD, ADHD, stress, anxiety, sleeping disorders, etc.

Lastly... I am looking for something that will blow me away. Something that is so original and clever that it automatically becomes unforgettable.

After giving this project some more thought, I have decided that I would like the back of the card to be a design using the leafs/hair from the logo. It must however be designed using thin lines so that it becomes a pattern which is easily etched with the laser engraving. Laser etching in moderation so that it doesn't take too much time to complete.

Also it would be great if the shape of the card was unique, but at the same time not overly difficult to cut. Eco friendly so less waste would be ideal.
