Artist Dan Meth put his skills to use and packaged random fast food items into a more elegant packaging. The kind that works for fancy parties. Or at least one you thought was gourmet food.
South Korean designer Dongwook Yoon gave banana milk packaging a twist by making the packaging match bananas. ‘The Real Banana Milk’ puts the milk bottle in a package designed to mimic the looks of bananas. As an added bonus, you have to peel off the packaging.
In a world where Walter White’s product was not evil, like it decidedly is, and was not illegal, he would need some solid corporate packaging to sell his product. This little concept from graphic designer Mike Karolos does exactly that: create a corporate packaging for Heisenberg’s product.
Ridiculously high costs of printer ink aren’t lost on anyone, neither is the fact that the prices border on the obscene. For a satirical take on the situation, Celeste Watson, packaged HP Printer ink like the packing of the famous Chanel No. 5 perfume. That’s actually downgrading the printer ink, because as it turns out, Hewlett Packard’s printer ink costs $4285 per liter, which is more than twice the cost of the Chanel perfume per liter. The repackaged ink is called Hewlett Packard No. 564.
Italian designer Benedetto Papi makes a very good case for geeky condoms with this set named “May the condoms be with you.” And each of them seems to have a nice little quip on the wrapper mating Star Wars to sex.
Design student Wilda Wongso gave a makeover, and a soul to the otherwise overlooked gift boxes. The set of four boxes called called Vigoo, features four characters that come flat packed and can be assembled into the desired shape by the user.
A student group in Acukland, New Zealand was given the task of creating a new packaging for Whittakers’ chocolate bars. They chose to follow the idea of a superhero, but not just any superhero, but the “Everyday Hero.” Yep, they made the average joe was made a superhero, and that clearly shows on the packaging of these chocolate bars. Yeah, they’d be good everyday, but since Valentine’s is at hand and a lot of people are going to buy chocolates anyway, this seems a great choice.
Perhaps it is the holiday season, or just the good looks of this idea, but we have really come to appreciate the Christmas tree inspired tea packaging concept by designers Maja Matas, Kresimir Miloloza, and Jozo Matas. Well, it must be the sound of the holiday cheer around the corner.
Cold drinks have been in cans for a long time now, but this concept by German Kapitonov takes it to the extreme. The designer has created cold drink cans analogous to canned food containers, creating a fun, somewhat intriguing and very much commercially non-viable design. But that of course doesn’t stop us from enjoying the idea, and thanking god no one ever thought of canning cold drinks this way. Worst case scenario: this would totally ruin beer.
The last time we saw Antrepo minimize product packaging, they stripped it off all colors and effects to leave the product at just the logo and name. For the second round, these guys have gone further, losing even the logo to write the name in a very simple font. We guess there’s a win for minimalism in there (somewhere).
