N.O.C.S Original Crawfish/Crab boil

N.O.C.S Original Crawfish/Crab boil - student project

Hello everyone, I'm Hyemi Oh  I'm so excied to working on label desgin!

I want to create a original crawfish boil product from my favoraite local resturant New Orleans Cajun Seafood (Orlando FL), a vietamese family own spot where I enjoy the original New Orleans cajun recipe seafood.

Owner's family moved to Orlando after Hurricane Katrina and It's been me and my sister's regular dinner place - such a seafood heaven! - YUMMM Spicy garlicly, buttery crawfish and blue crab is the best thing around the town.

They don't have their own merchandise at all although I can imagine someday they would come up with their original Crawfish, crab and shrimp boil product so I am making the label for original boil bag label.

hope you enjoy.

I was working little by little every night for this week!

My experience with illustrator is very small so this was long learning process. made bunch of mistake, and read lots of tutorial articles to achieve exactly what I want it to be looked .

If you guys have any good lettering advice, let me know!
