An Eco-Conscious Water Bottle

Posted in design, graphic design, green with tags , , , , , , on November 28, 2008 by anonimiss

The 360 Paper Bottle is a truly innovative packaging from Brandimage, which involved itself in every stage of design including concept development, branding, prototyping, engineering, and product design. The 360 Paper Bottle is the first of its kind in the world, and a true environmentally-friendly solution to the problem of plastic water bottles. The designers’ idea was to design a container that would leverage sustainability, be
easy to transport, and enhance the consumer’s drinking experience. The Bottle is the first fully recyclable paper container made from 100% renewable resources and offers a versatile range of consumer applications as it can stand up to all types of liquids. The Bottle is made from food-safe and fully recyclable materials and decreases energy consumed throughout the product life cycle without sacrificing functionality. Thumbs Up!!

Lets Toast to this Br(a)ill(e)-iant Packaging!

Came across this thoughtful but attractive packaging for wine designed by Baud.es. Lazarus Wine is made by blind people and labeled with Braille. Loved the thumb print on the cork! The Lazarus Wine website is also interesting, it follows the same braille concept all through. Simple and nice. Wish I could understand the language though!

Recycle – A ‘Soap’ Story…..

Posted in graphic design, product design with tags , , , , , on November 3, 2008 by anonimiss

Soso Designers from France designed these packaging concepts for Designboom’s Reinvent competition and incidentally won the first place in the packaging category. Cleaning products generate lot of wastes. In this concept, MR CLEAN becomes a company which actively takes care of environment. The designers enhanced the shape of classical liquid multipurpose cleaner, spray multipurpose cleaner, and dish washing detergent bottles, in order to invite consumers to keep and fill them at home. After the bottle purchase, the client will only buy concentrate refill pack to dilute it with water, and throw it after use in the recycle bin. These thin refill refer to the formal shape of cleanings products, instead of real bottles clients will buy images as a memory of them. I liked this concept because it offers a message to recycle while not compromising on the punch required to attract customers. Plus, while the idea of refills is not new, the idea of shaping the refills in the exact form of the original packaging is, and that ads that extra charm.

Recycling A Pot of Honey – How Sweet is That??

Posted in graphic design, green, product design with tags , , , , , on October 15, 2008 by anonimiss

I love the packaging designed by The Partners for Stanley Honey that promotes the re-use of the clay plant pot to encourage more honey making in the future! It is eco-friendly without compromising on  the graphic aesthetic and is not just about selling the product, but an attempt to make it sustainable.

Teabag with Strings Attached!

Posted in design, graphic design, product design with tags , , , , on September 14, 2008 by anonimiss

The ‘Tea for Health’ teabags designed by TBWA exclusively for The House Cafe in Istanbul made me smile! Each teabag has a different sporting activity hanging on to the string. They are quite gimmicky, but serve the purpose so well.
