What's your vision?
We are looking for a CLEAN SIMPLE and BEAUTIFUL packaging design that is appropriate for camera accessories and would look appropriate in an Apple store. ****UPDATE***** Just a quick note, we are digging the lighter-colored versions of the boxes rather than the all-black... We think it will be a better compliment to our partners boxes and stand out more on the shelves! It is necessary to include the following on the box: 1) Our wheel logo (attached) 2) Our motto, "put your cinematic ideas in motion" 3) The product name- CineSquid 4) Product Picture (attached) 5) Brief description of the product, "CineSquid is a suction cup tripod system fit for Spiderman. It can securely attach your camera to contoured, multi-level surfaces. Field-tested at over 200mph outside an airplane and in Hollywood car scenes, this killer system won’t move while you’re making your moving pictures." 6) The requirements "required: Joby GorillaPod Focus Tripod and ballhead" "weight limit 5 lbs (2.2 kg)" 7) The upc code (attached) 8) The QR code (attached) 9) The recycle symbol Please refer to the attached images for a view of our current design. We don't want something exactly the same as this, but it's just to give you an idea of how we are thinking about the packaging. We will need this product packaging to be used across different product categories. We are also attaching the box designs for LensBaby and Joby. Joby is a partner company and our products are compatible with theirs, so it would be nice if the packaging looked good together. We are attaching the LensBaby packaging design because we really love the look of their packaging. The box is 6"x6"x4". Please make it using the ai template that is attached. Please have the final design in the ai format. Please refer to https://vimeo.com/cinetics/cinesquid for a demo of the product. ***UPDATE: We are going to upload a few extra pictures of CineSquid that we have on hand if you would like to try incorporating them in to the design. The only stipulation we have with the product picture is this: The 3 suction cups are what is going to be sold inside the box. The main picture must demonstrate the 3 suction cups in a way that makes clear that the camera and tripod are not included (this is why we have faded out the camera and tripod on the main picture we used.) Feel free to use the other pictures on different panels.******* *****UPDATE**** We are adding 2 pictures we took in a local store that sells camera equipment and technology related to our products. Our products will be right alongside these and we want them to have a similar clean, professional-looking style and still be able to stand out from the crowd.

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their product packaging.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
Cinetics collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
