“This was a personal experiment in form, function, and fun. The goal of this redesign was to use a standard milk carton as the canvas to create a clean, modern, and functional design yet still approachable for the average consumer.”

    That’s awesome. Easily the best looking milk carton’s ever. Adds so much life to the carton. Now just to convince a company to run with this?

    Very neat. I really like this concept! Better than the boring cartons we have now.

    Sorry, what makes this better than Tropicana’s horrific redesign? I realize it’s just a concept but there’s nothing about this that would make me want to buy this milk.

    I’m all for “clean” designs, but this takes generic to a new level.

    I like the concept, however with milk being white I might have been tempted to reverse the colours so the milk drip and splash are white.

    I agree with Abbas! I still think this brand has the best packaging: http://www.schroedermilk.com/

    I have to agree, if the colours were reversed the white milk ‘droplet’ would be instantly recognisable. Nice use of colours though, would provide strong shelf standout (or should that be fridge standout?).

    I really like this. Minimalist approach yet very memorable. Good job.

    Design-wise, I don’t think there’s anything “generic” about this. It’s simple yet attractive &, more importantly, relevant & effective. Sure, it may seem “minimalist”, which is what many consumers like but generic? I don’t think so.

    I think there should be pastel colors instead of the bright ones. It seems a bit anti-milk. Besides that, great design.

    “reality check”, are you for real?

    With approximately 7.5 million households in Australia-wide for example, and say the average household buys 1 carton of milk a week, a company can potentially sell 390,000,000 cartons of milk a year. Even if they sell it at $1, that’s $390,000,000 up for grabs. Do you really think nobody cares?

    great one design! but,, what’s the difference between “whole”, “one”, and “two”? O.o *still don’t understand*

    It is 2012 now. Have they made these milk cartons now instead of keeping them concept?? Thank you. Christina

    Hi David,

    I’m developing a mobile application. Could I use the image as a sample product in the App Screenshots in Google Play?

    Thanks & Regards
