Ingenious Package Designs Made For Office Objects

Who said that office products must come in boring packages? Forget those ugly transparent paper clip holders or those elastic bands bags. I think everything deserve good design, and office objects are not an exception. In this article you can see some package designs which are not only beautiful, but also very ingenious.

Ric Bixter

The brief was to go into the pound shop and pick out something that seemed dull and completely re think the packaging of it. The idea is that the elastic band in the middle squeezes in the box and the strong the band, the most the box is squeezed.

Five Point art supplies are art products that appeal to the 20 to 40 year old artist. The in-store idea is that the detailed design will immediately catch the eye of any artist, being that every artist is detail oriented in someway. I wanted the design to be unique enough that no matter what isle in the store, when you see the elaborate design you automatically relate it to the great product you bought from Five Point previously, and therefore are inclined to buy more of the product.

Joy Lin

The reusable X-ACTO packaging recognizes the user’s every need in terms of transport, storage, usage, and disposal. Additionally, the compartmentalized design ensures that all of your precision tools are safely and conveniently accessible.

Pantone Plus Series

Designed by Base

Pantone is the international standard for color in the world of design. Identity, packaging, and launch campaign for Pantone Plus, the successor to the Pantone Matching System. We designed a logo lockup with the new name and framed it in the context of the iconic Pantone chip.

Sardine Paper Clips

Designed by OTOTO

Fun packaging in the form of a reusable tin for Animi Causa’s sardine paper clips. Who doesn’t need a set of sardine paper clips?

THINK Business Card Holder

Designed by THINK Packaging

Creating a cigarette style pack, it’s flip open lid is perfect for offering out a card. With the choice of the CMYK colours to choose from it adds a little sparkle than just passing a card that has been pulled out of a dusty old wallet.

 Prismacolor

Designed by Lauren Mae Oswald

Redesign of the Prismacolor 12 set marker package. The new package offers better functionality and durability, while embracing the artistic expression of the brand. All type was hand rendered and shows the utilization of the product.

 HP Ink Cartridge

Designed by Carli Shipley

In efforts to reuse, versus recycle, I designed a package that would enable the HP Ink consumer to send back their empty ink cartridge in the self addressed, same box that the new ink cartridge is bought in. Conceptually, HP would start a “refilling” option, where the user would order their next cartridge online ahead of time and receive a discount by entering a the code found on the box.

Düller Coloured Pencils

Designed by Naori Miyazaki

Düller is Japan­ese designed and pro­duced but takes many of its cues from Ger­man min­i­mal­ism and Bauhaus by valu­ing the phi­los­o­phy that less is more. Düller believes that design has its own evo­lu­tion and that form and func­tion are nat­u­rally selected — in this design world, adding some­thing means nothing.

GE Halogen Light Bulbs

Designed by Mongkol Praneenit

This is a redesigned for General Electric high-end light bulbs. The package is designed with recycled material to promote sustainability. Information is cleanly organized into a label system to reduce printing over the whole package.

HEMA Paper

Foxglo (pronounced Fox-glow) was launched to address European consumer adoption of basic green ideas and specifically, a shift from use of incandescent light bulbs to more energy efficient, compact florescent lighting.
