Designed by Robot Food | Country: United Kingdom

“We all love Christmas. But when you’re a design agency, the pressure’s on. To celebrate the season and their distinctive creative approach, Robot Food gave clients, family and friends something fun, festive and worth making room for on the mantelpiece.   

The specialist branding and packaging agency decided on a traditional wooden nutcracker. With an on-brand robotic twist. First seen in Germany, these ornamental figures have been around since the 15th century. They’re usually a wooden solder, knight or king, and are said to possess guardian-like properties because of their imposing presence. One of the inspirations behind The Nutcracker ballet, they’re enjoyed the world over for their festive decorative qualities.”

Designed by Tait Design Co. | Country: United States

“I’ve always loved vintage toys and wanted to take the classic hobby shop airplane that everyone had as a kid and elevate the design to new heights. I have been working on the product & packaging design for the last 4-5 months and am now in a place where I can produce these in multiples at my home studio – I do everything completely by hand.

The packaging is very unique! With a satisfying velcro-snap, it opens up to reveal the plane parts that are encased in the cardboard packaging. I’ve been meticulous with every design detail in the creation of this product.”

Designed by Marbles: Brain Workshop | Country: United States

“At Marbles: The Brain Store, we believe there’s an almost innate sense of satisfaction that comes from setting up dominoes into elaborate design, then knocking them down and listening to their gentle click-clack sound.  And that’s all fine and dandy, don’t misunderstand. But where’s the color?  Where’s the whimsy? Where’s the ability to create striking images based on design cards or random ideas you have floating around in your noggin They’re all right here in Colorfall!

Our product itself was designed by Chrissy Quinlan and Brad Hoffman, after winning a product design contest held at their university. The box was a collaboration of much hard work on behalf of the Marbles: Brain Workshop team (a division of Marbles: The Brain Store). There were many changes and shapes before the box could become something mass produceable, but the whole time we aimed high to create a box that reflected the fun inside: bright colors, just enough cheeky quotes, and lots of knocking down of tiles!”

“BornFree is the world-leading brand in baby feeding products. They stand out from their competitors by using BPA Free material that is safe for babies and also good for the environment. However, their packaging and branding didn’t communicate these key features.

The new packaging has a clear front that allows consumers to see and choose their product. The front part is blow-molded with PETG while the back part is molded with paper pulp, both of which are environmentally friendly, cost-efficient, and recyclable. The front and back are Pressure Fit together instead of using binding material, which renders them non-recyclable.”

“This is a personal project I realised for my girlfriends birthday. It is a magnetic dress-up puppet, made out of printable magnetic foil and cardboard. For the packaging I tried to use materials with a natural feeling to create a handmade-touch. As an inspiration I thought back to primary school when we made small cardboard puppets that could be dressed with paper clothes.”
