Assignment at University, 2015
This packaging design is a project I am quite proud of actually. We each got a type of food to make a new packaging for. I got ice cream cones, as you can see. I was so excited and so very terrified. They're so fragile!
I searched for inspiration everywhere and settled for a design with a retro-feeling. The packaging itself is inspired by a milk carrier and several beautiful photos of people serving cones in similar packaging setups.
When I made my own packaging design I added stability as well as a hidden serving area inside the lid. In the process of making it, I actually ended up dropping the whole thing by mistake(with cones inside!) - but to my surprise and delight, none of the cones was broken. Another plus, of course, stability is what I wanted.
With the accident crash test, I had another plus added. The packaging was not only easy to ship due to its slim design, it was also stable and had multiple areas for serving.
