“The redesign of General Electric CFL light bulbs is aimed to bring a friendlier shelf presence through the use of basic informative graphics. An advantage of the redesign is the ability to stack the packages together to complete the graphical form of a CFL light bulb. The top and bottom of each package might look familiar, they graphically resemble what the top and bottom of a CFL light bulb. Also something to note is each wattage has it’s own color identity.
The redesign also considered the environment, the new design is packaged with post consumer cardboard rather than calm shell plastic. This ensures the use of less natural resources and therefore less impact on the environment. GE would also allow consumers to put old CFL light bulbs back in these packages and mail them back to be recycled.”

“Kapacitet works with the development of the web content management product ‘leap’ and associated consultancy services. Through the software and its use as well as in the visual identity, leap emphasizes softer, more human elements instead of the technical aspect of the product. leap is the new generation of web content management systems, entirely developed on the Microsoft .NET platform.”

“Compared to previous clamshell packages, the new executions are more space efficient, have less environmental impact, are easier to open and the usage scenario unfolds in a semantic way.
The ‘unboxing’ is linear, so all cables and components relate to a graphic inside the box lid that serves as a quick setup guide. Plastic tray has been traded out for a 80% recycled paper pulp, begasse. Begasse has a velvety texture and is more refined than what comes to mind when you think of paper pulp.”

“In efforts to reuse, versus recycle, I designed a package that would enable the HP Ink consumer to send back their empty ink cartridge in the self addressed, same box that the new ink cartridge is bought in. Conceptually, HP would start a “refilling” option, where the user would order their next cartridge online ahead of time and receive a discount by entering a the code found on the box.
I chose to use recycled chipboard as my material and to screen print the graphics (using only process inks cyan, magenta, yellow and black).
The ink cartridges are packaged separately, allowing the consumer to purchase only the ink that is empty – Black or CMY. The package also provides a simple and quick solution for recycling empty ink cartridges.”

“Mizco imports and distributes an extensive line of cell phone and electronic accessories under 3 brand names- iEssentials, Cellular Innovations and Digipower.
The brands are sold primarily thru discount retailers in the United States, Canada and Mexico. In the value-priced segment much of the product mix can be commodity and consequently establishing of a strong brand position and a clear visual program is critical. designojo was charged with repositioning iEssentials, one of the 3 Mizco brands.
What We Did: designojo undertook a complete overhaul of the iEssential brand, including all aspects of the brand’s visual style, identity development, sub-brand creation, its’ retail presence and hundreds of package sku’s.”

“I redesigned the Sony packaging for their Vaio, Cyber Shot and EX ear buds. While researching the company, I found a letter from the CEO to stockholders explaining that Sony products “change the way people experience the world.” This statement inspired these packages, which have an outer sleeve with die cuts of the Sony logo and the product name on the back. On the inner boxes are images of nature that relate to the products inside. I wanted the packaging to be clean and simple, but still have an exciting and smart element that would accurately reflect the personality and functionality of Sony products.”

“Twelve South is a company that brings luxury accessories to Mac users. Our products are of the highest quality and we wanted our packaging to reflect that. We put a lot of value into our packaging, as it is considered a product itself. We believe that the customer re-using the packaging is far better than recycling. We wanted to design packaging that not only looks good but can be used by the customer over and over.”

A charming, retro-inspired conceptual design for GE Christmas Lights using a colour palette not normally seen in this product sector.
“The assignment was to redesign the packaging and identity of an ordinary object. I chose the GE Christmas Light Package and I wanted to make it bright and cheerful as christmas light by avoiding clichés. The colorful overlapped shapes are expressed as translucent bulbs and snow flakes as light inside the bulbs.”
