It is normally quite unusual to see anything sophisticated being designed for children’s packaging, but these crocodile boxes are both clever and engaging, with a ‘mouth’ lid which opens to reveal triangular teeth and a pink silk ‘tongue’ lining. Produced for the children’s section of a Swedish department store.

“This packaging is from a proposed re-brand for a vegan/ environmentally friendly shoe brand in the U.S. The idea was to raise the profile of the brand and communicate to a younger “trendier” audience. The box (on the left) carries hemp canvas deck shoes folded almost flat to minimize packaging materials. The laces from the shoes within are used to lace up the image on the box creating carrying handles, expelling the need for a carrier bag. However since the company also sell a range of other branded footwear, a carrier working on a similar principle, made out of thin recycled paper was also necessary.”

Lovely premium bags for Camper footwear by one of our favourite design studios. The coloured interior paired with the stark white exterior and strong black type make these bags look clean and simple, much like the product they sell.

“TOT-a-LOT is a brand dedicated to design clothes for twins. After designing the brand, we devised a packaging that conveys the idea of twins and also thought to be reused in the form of drawers for clothes. Having two babies at the same time takes effort and money. TOT-a-LOT is very responsible with the environment so all materials and inks used in their clothes are eco-friendly, so we designed a simple but impressive packaging focusing on the tone of voice of the brand. Did not need anything else to do it so appealing. The boxes are personalized with the names of babies and parents can begin putting their first clothes each in its corresponding drawer.”

“Promo piece designed to embody the history of the Valvoline brand (hence the “throw back” 50′s-era can design) while giving gearheads a practical (and pre-oiled) shirt that they could wear proudly while wrenching in the garage on the weekend. The label copy lists some of the values, venues and personalities that the Valvoline brand has come to be associated with over the 100+ years of its existence.

“For the last 21 months we have been thinking about shoeboxes: how to fold them, how to ship them and how to reduce them. In the end, we decided to get rid of them altogether because along the way we discovered a new design solution….a “clever little bag”.
Why so clever? By providing structure to a cardboard sheet, the bag uses 65% less cardboard than the standard shoe box, has no laminated printing, no tissue paper, takes up less space and weighs less in shipping, and replaces the plastic retail bag. Now happy Puma customers will take home the clever little one instead. Oh, and that little bag is non-woven which means less work and waste (it is stitched with heat), and after accompanying you in your suitcase wherever you may go, our little friend is even recyclable.
With our “clever little bag”, Puma kicks-off the next pivotal phase of its’ sustainability program. The tens of millions of shoes shipped in our bag will reduce water, energy and diesel consumption on the manufacturing level alone by more than 60% per year. In other words: approximately 8,500 tons less paper consumed, 20 million Megajoules of electricity saved, 1 million liters less fuel oil used and 1 million liters of water conserved. During transport 500,000 liters of diesel is saved and lastly, by replacing traditional shopping bags the difference in weight will save almost 275 tons of plastic.
That such a little bag can have such a big impact…you can see why we called it clever.”

“Over the years, our company has been very comfortable with presenting a witty face to the world – from our choice of name to the imagery that people associate with Bulldog.
We developed this visual pun to commemorate our 20th anniversary on February 10th, 2010. The piece fuses a crossword puzzle with our logo to create a playful visual shorthand for what Bulldog has done over the last 20 years.

We’re a little unclear as to whether these were designed just for Issey Miyake magazine ads or if they were actual product packaging, but nevertheless it is some lovely, minimalist design work, which is what we have come to expect from the creatives at Taku Satoh Design Office.
