Thank you very much for participating in the Gyokuro Japanese Green Tea Package Design Contest.
I know it has been a while since we did the contest.
We wanted to wait until the package was done to reveal the result, and it took a bit longer for production.
But now we are ready to show you the result, and they are fully prepared to be shipped out right away. Thank you very much for waiting!
What the Contest Was
Since it has been a while, let me remind you what the actual contest was.
We conducted the contest twice, as we couldn't make up our minds on the first round.
Here are the questions that you are being asked: (The actual form can be accessed here, and even though the contest is closed, you can still submit your selection if you wish.)
The Result of the First Round
And here is the result from the first round:
My personal favorite was the blue one, and I was disappointed that the blue one had the fewest votes. : ( I must not have a good sense, as when we did matcha package design earlier, I picked the least voted one too. (Here is a link to when we did the matcha design package if you are interested.)
We had a lot of great comments from everyone (thank you!), and we realized that the design of the lid was one of the reasons people picked the green one more than the color.
So, we decided to run another round of the contest with the same lid but a different color.
The Second Round Contest
Here is the second round of questions we asked. (And if you are interested, you can access the survey here.)
And the Final Result
And here is the result of the second and final rounds of the contest.
As you can see, the dark green won the contest above the original winner color from Round 1. We are glad we did this so that we could get the best of the color and design.
The Actual Package is Available Now!
The tube is made in Japan.
Prior to the contest, we had been in contact with multiple manufacturers of such packages, and we ended up choosing a Japanese company.
Before the contest, we contacted multiple manufacturers of such packages, and we ended up choosing a Japanese company. We are delighted with the quality of the outcome.
We changed some font colors to white and made the green a tiny bit lighter based on your comments so that texts can be read easily.
We just got the package this week and took the photos.
How does it look? Aren’t they beautiful?
(We got too excited, so we took so many pictures.)
I thank you so much for your help in coming up with this beautiful design. I am overwhelmed with all the comments you sent to me about the design, and I hope that the final design is something that you imagined. We could not do this without you. I love you and thank you so much!
