Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
We make Eco lunchware. Our aim is to reduce reliance on single use plastics.
US market. Both adults and kids use our eco-friendly products to help reduce waste and avoid plastics and the use of unnecessary packaging.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
We need packaging for our eco-friendly best selling stainless steel lunch box. It's a simple cardboard box that our main item, our steel bento box, is packed in. The box is to be made from plantable seed paper, so will have textures of seed throughout the cardboard/paper. Also needed is a seed paper product insert directing customers to leave a review. I will attach the old mockup of this so you can take inspiration from the text. Please be as imaginative as you like in both the box and insert, but the box must be the standard dimensions attached. Any crucial info to be included is indicated in the attached box .png. One of the main things about is is that we don't use anything unnecessary... No additional packaging and definitely no plastic. A paired back, minimalistic design would convey this feeling that everything has a purpose in our company and we are not wasteful. Think AESOP or EVO. Either white or brown box with one colour printing.
Please take a good look on our website http://www.seedandsprout.co to get a feel for what we are trying to achieve. Please note the main objectives are 1. to get them to leave us a review on Amazon and 2. to get them to sign up their name on our website (not amazon) so we can plant a tree in their name (seedandsprout.co/tree is the signup form)
Customers will be coming from both channels, amazon, fb and website...
It would also be great to get them tagging us on social media, and tagging the progress of their seed planting.
There is no logo other than the plain text logo on the website.
Because our customers value recycling and the zero-waste lifestyle, the box should have something clever printed on the inside, like "plant me and I'll grow" or perhaps the box can open up to reveal some kind of chart or information, positive quote to do with recycling, or even the mission statement/starfish parable from our website.
