Great! Very responsive, quick to make requested changes. He was also very helpful in describing how to edit and make variants in my design as well as using some artistic creativity to improve upon my design and make it look better than I originally pictured.
Jasmina is wonderful! Always a pleasure to work with.
Another 5 star job, this one very unique.

Finest Firewoods Delivered. Ash & Elm is focused on fire (wood, fireplaces, bonfires..) as a lifestyle experience. The Ash & Elm brand is positioned to higher end convenience markets, providing the highest quality hardwoods and fire supplies, delivered directly to homes and businesses. We will be packaging firewood in stylish boxes which you will design and your design will be the lead visual for our product experience. Woods such as Oaks, Maples, Cherry and Ash varieties are of the highest quality and packaged with beautiful smelling aromatics to enhance the fireside experience. Ash & Elm's first markets are in San Framcisco, NYC, Aspen & Vail, CO. .
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
This is the Packaging for Our Primary Product - Ash & Elm's Finest Firewoods Box. You are designing the packaging for our primary product which is delivered as either a 1 cubic foot or 2 cubic foot box of the finest ready to burn beautiful seasoned hardwoods and kindling. Our fireboxes will need a clean, high-end look which conveys quality and experience. They will also need to be durable, reusable and stackable for truck delivery. Our boxes will feature our Logo prominently (artwork attached) and additional product information will need to be placed on the box. Our tag line is "Finest Fires" and this should be employed as an element. Photos of competitor firewood boxes which are sold primarily in stores is attached. We would like a much cleaner and more elegant / higher quality look. Our boxes will be manufactured from a higher quality material and thickness than those shown here from other wood sellers. Because we deliver directly to the home, rather than sell through retail stores, our packaging does not need many of the disclosures and other language visible on other boxes provided for reference. Our standard log size is 16" so the box will need to handle at least this size in one dimension to handle the firewood properly. Box sizes can vary and we are looking for a distinct box design however, from a dimensions standpoint we know that one side must be at least 16.5" and would be longer if a compartment is added for kindling and burning paper on the long end. If 16.5" long then a box would need to be 11" tall and 13" wide to handle 1 cubic foot of wood. We can play with dimensions (making a box thinner but taller or shorter but wider) but the long end can be no less than 16.5". We want to include kindling and firefighting paper in the box so one idea might be a long box with separate divided compartment for kindling. We are open to ideas but want a really high quality, elegant looking package.
Please think in terms of clean and high end treatments than romanticize the product and create a very rewarding visual experience. We are not finalized on colors for the packaging or logo so we are open to various approaches and treatments.
