Are you trying to start your own candle-making business?
Thankfully, it’s super easy to design your own candle labels in Vectornator! In today’s tutorial, Sandra shows us how it's done.
You have your Instagram ready, dependable suppliers on hand, and the most important thing, a uniquely curated array of scents. You feel ready to make a label for your products. But you’ve still got quite a few things to figure out before that.
A candle label is way more than just your name on a product. Your brand identity should be the first thing you think about when you start designing a new label. Your community won't expect a minimalist brand to unveil a cluttered candle design. You should think of your candle's label as an extension of your aesthetic. It doesn't need to be a carbon copy of your design scheme, but it should pay homage to your logo, website, and overall color palette.
So placing the logo on a label or candle jar is a great start! And this is what Sandra does here. She designs a logo for her merch series from start to finish to give you insight into her design thinking, creative process, and tips & tricks. So be sure to watch every second of this tutorial to understand how a freelance designer & illustrator earns their bread & butter.
