Shoreman Heirloom Seeds

Shoreman Heirloom Seeds - student project

Shoreman is a little label that I came up with for my homebrewed ales that I've been doing for about 10 years.  Another one of my hobbies is growing old heirloom organic veg & fruit so I thought it would be cool to do some packaging for seed saving hopefully for future generations.  I live on Cape Cod full time and as Henry David Thoreau put it there are "fishmongers and garders out there on Cape Cod" when he came here to write is book in 1865. This area is steeped in farming and fishing tradition and I hope to bring that together with a label (probably stamped) and packaging for my seeds. 

5/20/13 - I'm liking this direction - needs some refining and also an area to write in what type of seed it is.

5/20/13 - Some initial quick sketches - still working out the ideas but I'm interested in exploring 1 or 2 of these directions.

My moodboard is accessible here  - I'm hoping to use Thoreau's idea as a background for this packaging combining farming with the ocean.
