“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.”

“If you’re among those who think that tofu is a rather boring and bland product, you might want to have a look at this new way of conditioning and packaging tofu. This study by Marie-Eve Dubois in my packaging class is quite an interesting way of combining aesthetic and function.

“We were to design work for a social or political cause; I chose tattoos for my topic. This Tattoo Tester is a kit that comes with certain papers so that the user can create custom temporary tattoos (transfer paper and carbon paper). The kit also includes a brochure with information on tattoo statistics and a brief history of tattooing. All parts of this kit are designed, written, and constructed by me. The box is made from light cardboard and all printed material is printed on recycled kraft paper.

Using this set of 5 (CMYK + White), he or she can create all the colours of the rainbow for their DIY projects (customization toys, shoes, accessories). A take-home colour wheel/instruction sheet would be given (in-store) plus guide them to an online site further providing the user with additional help. No sweat or tears just mix and paint it.”

“Monopoly, in spite being the classiest of all board games, unfortunately is packaged just as boringly and uncreatively as every other garbage board game on the shelves. So, I decided to repackage it… turning the class up to 11.
All of the boxes are made out of chocolate brown mat board and skinned in cream arches cover. The final package is just over 10″ x 10″ x 1.5″ and includes smaller containers for all of the various pieces and cards and a laser-cut holder for all of the houses and hotels.”

“I re-branded the Polish Vodka brand Wyborowa. My concept uses hand drawn typography – arching back traditional Polish graphic design which featured a lot of handmade type. The clarity of the vodka is its main feature, which is emphasised by having the story of the Vodka’s origin on the back of the bottle. The viewer peers through the product to read the story. When viewed on an angle the viewer gets an interesting warped optical effect whilst isolating the products name on the front of the bottle.”
