LEAF LITTER HOUSE
The art of making tea has been around for centuries. But in the creations of Kombucha, historical barriers were broken. Although the tea itself hasn't been proven to have supplemental benefits, many people buy in to the consumption of the probiotics Kombucha creates. Here, I've created the brand Leaf Litter House that has debuted its' first four flavors of Kombucha. A supplemental brochure illustrates the facts of Kombucha as well as pictures of the brand in action. A conceptual book is also added to further explore the combinations of teas, sugars, and probiotic cultures.

I wanted to introduce the era of the 1950's with the classic pin-up girls and using them as the center-piece of the look. I also wanted to have the retro aesthetic by creating a pattern on the inside of the box with 50's diner icons with thick strokes. The color palette keys in on the teal, pink and cream colors to take us back in time to the 1950's.
