Wide, hexagonal jars get a landscape label.

I discovered this beautifully designed honey at our local farmers’ market yesterday. My husband said, “Don’t we have a ton of honey at home?” and I answered, “But have you seen this packaging?!” Simply beautiful, and designed by the company cofounder, Darius Plavinskas, who also leads DariusDesignBuild, an architectural design & contracting firm.

Not only is their honey raw and untreated, it’s local – really local, as their beehives sit on rooftops in Jersey City Heights, Crown Heights (Brooklyn), Union City, as well as in the countryside in Columbia County, NY. Check them out.

Larger jars get a vertical label. The black, white and gold design perfectly contrasts the rich tone of the honey.

    Hello. I was looking at the bottle lid. The logo is on the side, as we can see. Was the lid plain? Or was there something on it?
    Probably a silly question, but I’m doing this extensive project so had to ask. Thanks! :)

      I believe the lid was a plain black lid. We didn’t design the packaging– just admired it. I would contact Oh Honey. They are located in Jersey City.
