i2i Art was approached by cider maker Jonathan Hull of Applewood Winery to have Monika Melnychuk create new packaging for their Hudson Valley Hard Cider, which was to be relaunched under the new name, Naked Flock. The product name was inspired by a very colorful, visual folk tale about a pastor who plants some poppy seeds and a flock of geese who eat the poppies and fall into a deep sleep. Thought dead the geese are plucked for their feathers--hence the name Naked Flock. Read the whole tale on Applewood Winery's website.
Monika says, "This is one of my favorite projects to date. And the first project I have been hired to do the illustration and design as well. Naked Geese? The story is hilarious, so when I approached the project I wanted to create something funny, but a bit edgy as well."
Monika designed the logo and labels and illustrated all three skus of Naked Flock Hard Cider: Original, Draft and Pumpkin.
