Thanks to Richard at Help Remedies for sending us the package designs for their new products. This is one of the best examples of product concept and design. From the naming down to the witty copy and simple, clean design, it doesn’t get much better than this.

“Our packaging is made of molded paper pulp and a bio plastic made primarily of corn. We use these materials because they are interesting to look at, and they are compostable—which means one day, they might become part of a large tree. Maybe you can cut down that tree and make it into a speedboat.

Visit this space daily to experience the ongoing struggle of “help I have a headache” as it attempts to biodegrade.”

    What a nice packaging!!
    I usually think of medicine packaging as boring, but this actually is really cool!!
    I can`t wait to see one of this in my country so I can buy one of each! Even when I am a very healthy person.. XD

    Absolutely beautiful. What a contrast to typical medicinal packaging–Simple and succinct with a great personality.

    Great Material Use, Great Typeface, Great Display.
    Witty, but not harsh.
    One of the best design pieces I’ve seen yet this year!
    Well Done.

    I love the entire packaging concept of this product and it makes me want to buy it for that reason alone – the product will be beneficial as well.

    These are so cute and very user friendly! Now if you loop a little string around them and hang them onto the strap of a handbag, that’d be even better!!!

    What I love best about the website: Upon entering the site, I noticed the package colors were all different and that you could click on the packages to change the colors. I, of course, made them all the same color. Along comes a pop-up asking me to search for an obsessive compulsive disorder support group.

    This is design masturbation at its worst. I don’t see any dimensions here, but I’d guess they’re around 6″ x 6″ x .5″ or so. The size of the packaging comparable to what’s inside is ridiculous. In the “Help I have a blister” pack there’s 8 bandages… for $4! Who, besides design groupies, is going to buy this? Using a compostable material is noteworthy, but the packaging material most other products in this category is made from (cardboard) is recyclable.

    There’s more to making a well-rounded product besides great packaging. Don’t get me wrong, I think these are beautiful packages, but you’ve created a beautiful package at the expense of a sensible product.

    This looks like a great idea for a first aid cabinet in a workplace

    Help, I’ve been stung by a bee
    Help, my eyes are dry
    Help, my skin is itchy
    Help, I’m a girl and it sucks (lol)
    Help, I’ve got a burn
    Help, I can’t stay awake

    I was in Chicago last year and saw your products in a gas station. I am really interested in becoming the distributor for the caribean if it’s available? Can you send me more details on your company and your help products.
