Check out dlcgl2009's Product packaging contest…
Description of the product
We are going to sell differnet kind of printer consumables.
Description of the product target audience
End user customers, from each home and business to business.
We are looking for a fresh design, clean, next to web 2.0 look and feel, we would like to express a big company, serious and valuable on the market. It must inspire quality. But what we would like, is to offer to our customers the feeling that the new product has the roots of its old one. We have to feel that the new design is like the evolution of the first one. We donț want to send the message to our customers that the new product is another product, but the same product as an evolved stage. We need 2 types of packaging (the same graphics but one is mostly orange and the other is mostly purple) because we have 2 types of cartridges: DLC (orange packaging) and DLC extra (purple packs). We've loaded the two current variants for example. The loaded packaging model (the bad one with brown and yellow :)) I loaded it because although the colors and graphics are horrible, it contains all the information that should be found on the new packaging. Including the logo is the right one. The spaces specifically made for the product label are important and must be found on the new packaging. I also loaded the text into word file.
What to avoid
do not use any images, it must be all graphic.
Use the orange box to have a general idea. We ll provide later each dimmensions of the boxes, as we donț have only one standard. The graphics must be 100% adaptable to more dimmensions.
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.
dlcgl2009 collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
