Manufacturers usually specify product packaging based on conventional sizes, materials, and perceived budget constraints. Rarely is consideration given to a consumer’s experience of it, how it affects their brand, or its environmental impact.
Students in Jeremy Shellhorn’s Visual Communication Design studio were challenged to consider these aspects to reimagine packaging for products ranging from office supplies to toys. See more images from this project on Instagram.
