Packaging concept developed by Tiffany Marchis at UQAM. ”The package was part of a larger campaign to promote the green city. Herbs are available in kraft paper bags easy to transport and handle. The bottom lined with a detachable tray is then to be planted in the garden or simply in a pot. All material is optimized including the handles of the bag that can be used, once detached, as identification label for grass”

Designed by Jauku Design. ”The idea of this project was to design a package for a jewelry tree. Main concept was to make a person, who is holding the package, feel familiar with the Jewlery Tree, that is inside it. We decided to choose an ecological and simple structure of the package, as it saves energy and time, needed to produce it. Also, we wanted to make it a little bit interactive, so person discovers the „content“ little by little, by performing opening actions. A great interest was payed to make this package suitable for post delivery, so it is strong and reliable and still meets the smallest sending requirements.”

Adrián Froufe is a spanish product designer based in Milan (Italy) and here is his Product Design BA Final Project. ”100×100 is a brand dedicated to organic food that seeks to create links between rural producers and urban consumers and tries to improve the quality of the products we consume in our day to day lives. In addition, we have tought to give this brand a new and attractive aesthetic component that breaks with the classic image of organic and environmentally friendly products. All packaging of 100×100, except for the obvious elements, is made of the same material: corrugated cardboard, to which the seeds of various herbs are added in the manufacturing process. When the container is no longer useful, it can be planted and the seeds will sproud. Thus, the idea of recycling takes on a different dimension to the traditional: From our waste we can generate life.” Made with the assistance of Frédéric Misik. Branding design in collaboration with graphic designer Jesús A. Nieto
Designed by Studio Alto. ”San Churro’s Real Chocolate is a product range developed in reaction to a chocolate market flooded with inferior ‘confectionary’ chocolate. Real couverture chocolate is made from 100% pure cocoa butter, nothing less and only couverture chocolate can truly be labelled the real deal.
The design response was to create something artisan, hand crafted and most importantly, real, to reflect the product itself. The result being a range of products each with its own individual type execution and colourway printed on 100% recycled card.”

It is always good to see new ideas questioning standards. The traditional egg carton has been the same over the years - Here is a new concept, made by design student Éva Valicsek. It will probably not be as efficient and environmentally friendly as the current solution. But it is really good to see people (often students) challenging old ideas.
”The print substrate is a cartonboard named Frövi Carry that is commonly used for packaging solutions like this one. We decided to turn the coated white side to the inside to reveal the original material through the untreated brown side of the carton sheet. The box is printed in three colors: yellow (a special spot color mixed for the brewery), an opaque white as first coat printed under the yellow and finally black for the texts. The printing plates for the texts can be varied to define the particular sort of beer the box is made for. A matt varnish is printed nearly all over the box with just the corona left open to achieve its unobtrusive and subtle appearance. Laterally information about the producer is placed. On one side there is a short text on the brand «LägereBräu» itself. On the opposite side a short description provides further information on the particular sort of beer. If you open the box at the perforation it reveals the inner coated surface of the cardboard. We printed the entire inside with the yellow spot color to support the idea of the box being just a physical container that on its opening discloses all the ideas and values connected to the brand and it’s product.”
