40 Beautiful Package Designs
40 Beautiful Package Designs
We all know that a good package greatly increases product sales. Below are some of the most beautiful, minimalistic and inventive package designs.
1. Quality Cafe
The goal was to create the corporate identity for this “coffee shop”, which sells varieties of high-quality coffee. The company’s initials shape is a coffee cup. The brown centre of letter “Q” can be used as colour codes on the packaging. The logotype is a modern, playful typeface which is to solve the geometric containment of the logo. Different shades of brown colour indicate the type of coffee roasting in the cup. The colours of the rings on the saucers offer three colour variations indicating different areas of this company.

“&Co represents simplicity – of purpose, provenance and production. The winery produces a single exceptional estate wine each season. To emphasise this we’ve pared the identity back to a black and white palette. We’ve made a feature of the type, letting it ‘speak’ to the customer. &Co breaks convention with more traditional looking wine brands, topped off with the uniquely cool closure of a crown seal, we’re not at all upset that once opened we have to drink the whole bottle.”

We can make people think about it writing and showing the issues directly on the pack.”

It has initially turned its attention to food, a sector that has, for too long, been look upon as merely a necessity of life and requires limited in-depth packaging design. PRIMVS feels that design and form have been neglected in the way food packaging is presented and our PRIMVS FOOD brand aims to attract those who appreciate premium quality food and design.

“Hwila is a natural mineral water from Vimmerby, Sweden, a brand owned by one of Sweden’s oldest breweries; Åbro. After many years Hwila needed an update — it was time to modernize, for a younger target group, without loosing the positive values connected with the brand. With this redesign we were concerned to find a formula whereby it was possible to constantly being able to update the design, with out ever loosing contact with its heritage. The simplicity, purity — the restfulness — was the main idea were colours and shapes signal different variations of the mineral water – sparkling, non-sparkling, taste etc. A modern, youthful, design. Easy to apply on either cans, glass or PET-bottles. Large or small. Pure and rigorous, Hwila really makes a point in any store. Creating true shelf impact without screaming.”

26. Grow Your Own
Octavia Soebiyanto designed this last year for the D&AD awards, when he was studying at Singapore Raffles Design Institute.
“For this homebase ‘grow your own’ product, it takes chewing gum shape as it is quite small so it can reduces the production cost and material-used. By using more sustainable material such as biodegradable paper and plastic, it can reduces the nature-distraction effected by packaging. The product is small also caused by consideration of the target market which is novice gardener. Someone who is new or still want to try, surely don’t want to spend his money on something that they are still new.”
“The aim of the project was to rethink and re-brand the sanitary protection product category (‘Sanpros’), namely sanitary towels and tampons. A necessary purchase for women typically aged 12-55 years old. These products are mainly purchased by women and on occasion by men for women. The packaging should encourage the buyer to be confident of their purchase and not embarrassed. It should also be environmentally friendly and recyclable.”
