Typeface for packaging
0

Hey there! I´m in a conflict with the selection of the typeface for a project that I need to do. The project is to design a light bulb pack. We already have the design of the pack me and my colleague. I can attach you some samples that I did but I´m not totally convinced though of the result. The style is a bit minimalistic I could say.
Feel free to make any suggestions.

Thanks,Orestis

Perhaps the schematic nature of the illustration would invite type with a background as engineer's lettering, e.g. DIN.

Cf. old modernist lightbulb packaging/adveritising:

Very nice. I imagine you've submitted now, but it might be good to put the specification numbers (lumens, watts etc.) into lining figures as this is normal on technical specifications for headings. Also, I would reset the shadow effect for "MM" so that the 'shadows' aren't separated from the letters that are supposed to be casting them.

Oh sorry for not being able to respond but I already finished the project. I can attach you a final image of how is the definite layout.
