I love a challenge, and this packaging adventure was one of them.
PDX Magazine's editor tasked me with an exploration into some sort of packaging that would be cool enough as a keepsake and show case all issues thus far. So how do you make packaging where the cost is minimal, anyone can assemble, and most importantly is unique? Quick sketches of an idea (or 5) were key. It allowed me to work through potential issues in sketch. Still, unforeseen issues cropped up while creating the first prototype. The second prototype addressed those issues, and was much stronger. However the cost to make the latest prototype was a tad too high. Another solution was found, super low-tech, and very inexpensive. These packaging ideas were abandoned but it was a nifty adventure.
