Designed by Hana Lee | Country: United States

Clearly, this is a student with a very bright future ahead of her. We’re excited to feature three projects of hers today: a paint product line, candles and a range of pharmaceutical products.

“In creating this Americana line of paints for Orchard Supply Hardware, I wanted to develop the value of the OSH brand and bring a sense of America, by using multiple layers, a rustic texture, classic typefaces, and old style tin cans. The most challenging part of this assignment was to research the American paint market, and try to understand this aspect of American culture.”

Student Work - Adar Peled

Designed by Adar Peled | Country: Israel

“The assignment was to design packages to a product of our choice and  to use as an inspiration the nature of our family. I invented a company called “Bodyguard” and designed the logo, and decided to pack medicines. Here in Israel pharmaceutical drugs come separated from the user leaflet so I wanted my packages to be more user friendly and therefore the leaflet is on the other side of the package and always attached to it. Army honor medals were my reference for the colors and lines because my family has a long coming history in the Israeli army as commanders and pilots.”

We only have patchy information on this design so if anyone can help us fill in the gaps we’d love to hear from you in the comments below.

The medi flower stands on a desk or table to as a visual reminder to take your medicine. The idea of arranging medicine in a visually interesting format is a good one; the number of petals (pills) on the flower could be designed to indicate  the intervals in

a day’s worth of medication for those with a lot of pills to take, or could alternatively symbolize one day per petal. Having seven petals could work well where birth control is concerned.
