Design Brief for Jerky Ben

Company or website name:

Jerky Ben

Slogan or taglines:

Hate the Man, Love the Meat. - I am a fun loving fat guy who likes to make beef jerky. I love people, i love life, I love Jerky,

Describe your company and organization and target audience:

The name of the product: Jerky Ben

I make a beef jerky product. Right now i plan on selling from my house but i may decide to sell in local stores and online. My jerky is a high quality jerky and comes in a variety of flavor. The brand element for the product is me, Ben. I live in a tight knight community and am well known. I do a lot of community work, and I am involved in a lot of community projects. I have been in several articles and have received many awards for my service. I am known to be a funny, outgoing, loves life, loves people kind of guy. I am also a really fat guy and the natural assumption is fat people make good food. That is why name "Jerky Ben" is a funny name.

My target audience are people who like jerky. Again, I am not selling this on a wide level. This is a hobby, i make it, i sell it to friends who pre-order, i give it to people . My jerky is awesome. I want them blown away when they see the package and set their expectations super high. I also want the package to make them laugh a little about "Ben".

The design should be a charicature of comical, it is meant to be self deprecating in a humorous manner, not downgrading. The guy should not be a slob, just someone who you look at and you say "Wow, this guys knows meat and how to have fun"

The design should have the following:

I am not sure which way to go on the design. On one hand i like the clean flat look, on the other hand, I cant get the image of a big fat bearded guy (me) sitting on his ass on the couch in pajamas and a wife beater drinking a beer.
The jerky will be packaged in a 4x6 mylar bag (https://goo.gl/691ChK). I will print the labels on a high gloss or matte finish. Not sure yet and then afffix them to the bag.
I probably will not make a separate label for every flavor. I will need all the flavors listed out vertically somewhere on the label (bottom right?) with a checbox and i will check off the flavor.
Maple Bourbon
Jalapeno Lime
Lemon Pepper
Chile Coconut Thai
Hickory Heat

I won an award called the "Community Chesed Award" last year, i think it would be pretty funny to have some kind of seal on the product saying "Endorsed by the 2018 Community Chesed Award Winner" Like a round stamp, kind of like an award stamp.
