The package is also the product: a light and lampshade made using the same method used to manufacture blister packaging.
“The technique of thermoforming commonly used to make a container that once opened its rejected as trash, now is the final product: the container and content at the same time. Blightster is a thermoformed lampshade that by simply attaching the electric connector found inside (does not require electrical installation), its transformed to a beautiful lighting piece, that may be used as a ceiling lamp as well as a table top one.”

“For USPA’s Supernatural hair care range the package design needed to express their philosophy – the combination of age-old botanical wisdom with the latest chemistry. The twist-cap extending up and out of the bottles represents nature and growth with the translucency revealing the technology of the mechanism. A rich colour palette, combined with bottle forms that orientate in a variety of configurations, allow strong merchandising options.”

Inspired by their Canadian heritage, identical twin design duo DSquared² created the fragrance He Wood with an outdoorsy vetiver scent.
“(The bottle) was inspired by a trip to our home country, where they have these bottles of maple syrup at the duty-free shop that come in a wooden box to protect it like it’s precious. Plus we liked the idea of the contrast of warm wood and a cold glass bottle.”
The square bottle cap and bottle shape play on DSquared²’s brand name, and the natural characteristics of the red alder wood means no too bottles are identical.

“Core Cider is the latest product from the High Vale orchard in the foothills surround Perth, Western Australia. Core Cider contains no artificial colours or flavours and is made from organic apples grown on the High Vale farm.
The pure nature of the product lent itself to a clean, simple and sophisticated label design that would showcase the product. With this look in mind, a transparent ‘clear on clear ‘label stock was chosen and printed with 5 spot inks and a white silk-screen.
Core Cider will be available from all good bottle shops and available from the High Vale cellar door from mid-2009.”

“Wedding invitation in a tin can which after the ceremony is attached at the back of the newly married couples car.
It is accustomed, after the wedding ceremony, for friends and relatives of the couple to bang saucepans and bells in order to make noise and send away jealous spirits.
The wedding invitation is packaged with a string. While reading the text (date, place, etc), there’s an illustration which explains how to tie the string at the back of the can and the whole making at the back of the car.”
