“Fresh Flowers: My goal was to create a sturdy and intriguing package for flowers and plants for easy transporting. The plastic wrap fresh flowers are placed in today don’t protect the plant’s fragility. It also doesn’t support a base in which you can easily travel it from one place to another, especially in your car! I choose to make the color palette black and white not only for simplicity but to allow the colors of the flower to pop!”

Beautiful packaging concepts from this recent graduate.
“The aim of this project was to produce a simple range of sake aimed at a western audience. By limiting the range to the three basic varieties and eliminating the confusing Japanese terminology my intention was to make it as clear as possible. To produce the different grades of sakes the rice grain is polished to remove the proteins and oils from its exterior. The more the rice is polished the better the outcome. This process of refinement is high-lighted through the decreasing opacity of the bottles.”

“The name Milli is short for ‘millimeters,’ the unit that measures the size of bullets. It is also short for ‘millisecond,’ which is often the margin of victory in a foot race. The shoe is placed inside a bullet-shaped box, a symbol of power and speed.”

“Azul’s concept turned out to be both an object and a simple packaging to wrap pieces together. The walnut bird perch is separate to the seeds container and wrapped with a simple belt of paper. The food is available in a nice bird shape widowed box.”

“This high-end ice cream is named for the southernmost Swiss Canton that juts into Italy. Ticino embodies both the perfection and grace expected from the Swiss and the Italian love of food flavoured with joy.”

“What do we need from a package? We need a functional service of course, but also information about the product. Not a complex text that you don’t have time to read, but a simple letter related in this case to the Maple Syrup classification system.
This is Andrée Rouette’s project in my packaging class. Despite its expensive approach, this concept of maple wood laminated thin bottles they can be reused and therefore justified. Also they could be simply replaced by a wood texture printed-paper label as a cheaper version.”
