A while ago I was asked by the food producer ÖNOS (a brand under Procordia Food) to make one of their labels. They are a producer of delicate syrups and jam. There were allready several products in the product line so the illustration had to resemble the others.

It´s nice to see a lot of them in the supermarket and of course I had to buy one of them .-)
