GULLGUTEN APPLE LIQUEUR
In the beautiful region Kandal in Sogn and Fjordane, Norway, there lies a farm called Sølvane Gard. The valley is filled with apple trees that flourishes with fruit year after year. One day the farmers got the idea to make some nice and sweet apple liqueur to save the fruit from going to waste. The name of the golden liqueur label, Gullguten, fittingly means Goldenboy. And the decor is inspired by traditional Norwegian wood carving patterns and vintage Art Nouveau details. The gold foil on the label represents the warmth of the sweet apple liqueur, and hidden in the swirls it has the tagline 'ein helt magisk' which means 'a magical' placed before the product description, apple liqueur. The golden apple illustration thrones at the top corner of the label and strengthens it the identity of the product.

100% RAW TALENT
100% RAW TALENT
Charlotte wanted to stick out as a job seeker and make something fun and eye catching to show her personality and her own original style as a designer. This is how she solved the problem. -Who doesn't like chocolate? She's listed her skills as how she would be to work with as a designer on the back of the wrapper in the ingredients list, along with her contact info and a fun twist with a "Best Before" box that says "Before someone else snaps me up", like a wordplay at the same time as in snapping up a chocolate bar. The front of the wrapper says " Charlotte Olsen: 100% RAW TALENT", and on the sides of the wrapper it says "No artificial skills" and "Not factory made", therefore she chose to print on a textured paper to make it look more "Raw" and natural. Under the wrapper she put a Golden Ticket that gives anyone "snapping her up" 10% off her hours. Want to know if it worked? Ask her!
