Jarred goods have never looked so, well, good. Astrid Stavro Studio, in collaboration with Grafica, has designed the labeling for these jars of Son Brusque olive oil, almonds, chillies and other delicious food ideally eaten by a pool in a shaded olive grove, but equally acceptable in a rainy kitchen.
Apart from the appealing scale and clarity of the typography, the text of each jar tells us what date the contents were manually harvested. Wow. Kind of like hand-scribbled stickers on pots of jam or chutney, but perhaps a tad more sophisticated – they lift the lid on any desires you might have to own an extensive larder in a beautiful Mediterranean house. Yum.
