Gurilem is a cracker made from tapioca flour, long, seasoned with salt, chili, onions, and other spices. Some people call this gurilem as worm cracker, because it has a long shape like a worm. Gurilem Nyi Iteung was established to introduce gurilem crackers, which are a typical food of West Java, to the public. This UKM has the aspiration to become a leading brand in Indonesia that produces snack products with a distinctive West Java taste made from selected spices. To improve the image of Gurilem Nyi Iteung's products, it is necessary to design a company logo that can support the appearance of product packaging so that in the future it can compete with its competitors.

The logo design is in the form of a logotype made with a minimalist design style to describe Gurilem Nyi Iteung's products. While the packaging label is designed using a minimalist design style by displaying product photos, font type and two main colors that symbolize the taste variants of the product.
