“This lamp comes as a box with all parts inside (bulb, plug, cable etc. + manual). You cut top and bottom yourself and then install. The cut out of the lamp shape functions as a graphical image of the lamp that could be inside the box, but is not.”

“The package is a piece that I send to potential employers that showcases my design work. I produced about 20 pieces that I either send as a precursor to attempting to obtain an interview or as a leave-behind after an interview. In either event, it is designed to help me stand out from everyone else, which it has done very well.
There are about 12 samples of work inside the canister. Each sample gives a brief description of what the project entailed and my role in it. Each work sample also directs the viewer to my website where they can see that particular piece of work in its entirety.”

I don’t think that I could ever become sick of Askul’s packaging or design, it’s absolutely wonderful. Expect to see more of it here in the coming weeks and months.
“The main objective of the new identity is to increase Askul’s competitive power and brand heat in a mature market. The ambition is to mark the introduction of a new era and communicate the evolution of the Askul company.”

How do you package office chairs? With a slip cover of course. Design Project has come up with a very clean and effective solution for contemporary furniture consultancy Corporate Workspace. I’m not sure what I’d like more, the chair or the cover.

I love the simplicity of these designs and their use of bold type and colors. This system created by BVD is a fine example of where less is more.
“With Scandinavian design as a starting point the products’ common denominators are function, simp-
licity and clear communication. The typography has distinctive elements of colour and graphics, which makes the packaging eye-catching within both the extensive catalogue, and the home or office environment.”
