Another design for another Sandugo Trade Expo this year sponsored by the Department of Trade and Industry. This year's theme is Go Green, Buy Local so I made a combination of products from Bohol and some from Region 7 (Bohol, Cebu, Negros Oriental and Siquijor) and form them into a leaf, a symbol for greener options. It is greener if you buy local products.
So this design will be seen all throughout Bohol during the annual Sandugo Festival.
My 8th study for the Sandugo Trade Expo was approved. I heaved a sigh.
One of the hardest design to make is for friends you knew well. When Atit asked me to design Mimi's birthday invites for their biker friends, I find it hard to make a good one.
But knowing bikers want mileage, especially those who are serious types, we came up with the idea of putting Mimi's (Atit's husband) picture in a ruler not to measure his age but to give emphasis that the ruler is still that long.
Many years back, I designed this wall background for a travel agency at the SuperCat terminal. See the color orange? It's my favorite color and I impose them on my clients haha. My client liked it, actually.
Bohol has a lot of products made by non-government and people's organizations. The only problem they have is on the marketing side. Boholanos are not keen on excellent packaging with "pwede na" (this is enough) attitude.
With their exposures to a wider market, packaging has become a challenge. Thanks to the help of the Department of Trade and Industry in Bohol and some foreign funds, the organizations are now improving their products and their packaging.
This is for a BOHOL MADe, a group of cooperatives in Bohol that aims to produce wholesome and quality food products.
