For centuries, ginger bao (broth) has simmered in kettles across Asia. It’s the base for nearly half of Traditional Chinese wellness drinks, but it’s never been bottled…until now. Mr. Mak’s, a New York-based startup, is introducing this intensely spicy drink to American consumers. Organic, gluten-free, and low in sugar, Mr. Mak’s Ginbao supports healthy digestion and a strong immune system.
The label design for Mr. Mak’s Ginbao is inspired by the tangram―another Chinese innovation that made its way into the western world―with a dose of Qing Dynasty meridian charts and a nod to vintage Chinese medical packaging. This project was honored in the 2018 Print Regional Design annual.
