I dearly love the ampersand-g ligature.
This is my final packaging project for the academic quarter. The project brief called for us to design a brand and packaging for a hypothetical food company. The brand I came up with was for an all natural juice company that I decided to call Orchard & Grove.
The packaging solution I came up with is a bit different than standard beverage packaging. I decided on a standard size of 8 ounces per juice box. I designed the top of the juice box to unfold, revealing a drinking spout, similar to a milk carton. It uses no extra materials to drink, unlike the straw required to drink from a Juicy Juice box. The 8 oz juice boxes can be easily assembled into a four packs using the 4 pack case. The 4 pack case is made of two pieces of paper that can be slid together using simple notches on the top and bottom of each piece to create the case (no glue required). The hooks in each side of the case can then be used to hook into cut slots on the side of each juice box. If you look at the box and 4 pack case dielines, you’ll see both the hooks and and slots highlighted with red circles. This method of hooking boxes in place requires no extra glue. It also requires less material than some other packaging like the standard 6 pack for carrying beer bottles, that needs enough material to cover more than half of each bottle and requires glue to assemble.
I also designed a 1 quart container that features a screw top for multiple use. The 1 quart container takes up exactly the same amount of space as four 8 oz juice boxes placed together to create a modular system that allows for the most efficient use of space for shipping and stocking purposes.
My goal with this project was to use as little plastic as possible (only used as polyethylene coatings to keep the juice box packaging aseptic and a screw top for the 1 quart container), as little glue as possible, as little material in general, as well make for the most efficient use of space when these product are shipped and stored.
Several weeks ago I was asked to re-tool the type treatment on the old US edition cover of The Archeology of Knowledge by the great philosopher, sociologist, and géneálogiste Michel Foucault.
