Busy Australian business needs a box template designed!
Check out BigMatty86's Product packaging contest…
Fusion Qld and Flo Right
Box Design and Stick Design to go onto box
Description of the product
We are a company that imports and sells at wholesale PVC and PE fittings for the Australian Plumbing and Irrigation Industry for the movement of gas, water and waste.
Description of the product target audience
Our target audience is predominately men 30-50 years old. The design needs to be clear, simple and easy to identify at a distance.
We need two cartons designed that will be used to store PVC and PE fittings for the Australian Plumbing and Irrigation Industry. We deal with 4 different factories in Asia and need a standardised carton that can used by each factory and represents our brand well. Standard Carton Size 500mm L X 400mm W X 300mm H The design will be used for two different brands that we operate, 1. Fusion Qld and 2. Flo Right. Note the basic layout can be the same (not much extra work) however if the design can have a slight difference would be great. We do have other size cartons so if its possible to have a design that suits and can be used by our printers on different size cartons. Other carton sizes only slightly vary for example, 60x40x40mm. If you could include dimensions that the logo should sit in relation to the edges of the carton as a potential solution for different sized cartons, that would be an option as there are various sizes that change often depending on the product. Design 1. • Logo – Fusion QLD • Website Address - Fusionqld.com.au • WaterMark logo (do not make this a huge feature) - “uPVC AS/NZS 1477 Pressure Fittings” (Fusion Qld) Design 2. • Logo – Flo Right • Website Address - Floright.com.au • WaterMark logo (do not make this a huge feature) - “AS/NZS 4129 Polyethylene (PE) Pressure Fittings” (Flo Right) FONTS 1.

Design Requirements: Space for Logo – this will be imputed by printer before printing DESCRIPTION: *example* 50mm x 90° Elbow CODE: *example* TE9050 QTY: *example* 60
What to avoid
Nothing too complex. Box and sticker needs to be clear and easy to read. The box design needs to have clear instructions for the manufacturers in China and Thailand to print a professional product. We dont want any imagery on the box.
Dimensions of a standard box are on the box design brief attached. Please note that we are looking for a simple design that outlines the bleed marks and also where the logos should sit in relation to the edge of the box to ensure that the box can be printed in any size.
It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their product packaging.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
BigMatty86 collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.

We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
