the CzechDesign.cz invites designers from all over the world to take part in its packaging competition.
The Model Young Package is a competition focused on paper products. Prototypes of packaging made of corrugated or smooth cardboard and other paper materials are accepted.
The aim of the competition is to select winning designs (artworks) that best meet the assignment.
For particularly successful designs, the Promoter can approach the author for completion and realization of the design for production.
The theme of the competition is Unboxing Experience.
Pack any of your favorite products in such a manner, that everyone will want to share it on Instagram!
We all love unwrapping gifts! Unboxing videos have become a huge hit on Youtube in recent years.
However, the right packaging experience is preceded by a sophisticated packaging design.
Each package has to go a long way from the manufacturer, through e-shop and delivery services to the customer‘s hands. Throughout the journey, the packaging has to protect the product greatly for the big finale – unboxing.
The moment of unpacking is the most challenging for designers. How can the customer enjoy more, how can he be surprised?
How to make that short moment really special, while the packaging also still works perfectly?
Show your vision of an awesome Unboxing Experience that will be so great that everyone will want to share it!
