Maik B. got their new product packaging by running a design contest:
Creative packaging design for pens needed
Check out Maik B.'s Product packaging contest…
Description of the product
Pinselstifte means water brush pens. With these pens you can do stuff like hand lettering or water color painting. It’s made for both children and adults. Our product is a set of 24 pens in different colors plus 2 so called water tank brush.
Description of the product target audience
Our product is used by children and adults who draw with brush pens as a hobby.
We need a design for the frontside and backside of our plastic box. The design will be sticked on both sides, so we are taking about two stickers. We have prepared power point slides that show the content we would like to have in our design. It should be in German so you can take the phrases as they are and just copy them in your design. The slides just show an example. Please feel completely free to find your own design. Just the content needs to be part of it :-) The front side should show elements you can paint with water brush pens. Therefore, it is ok when you use stock material.
What to avoid
Many competitors use very bright and colorful designs to show that there are many different colors inside the set. We would like to focus on a more elegant design. Maybe you have a nice idea to combine the variety of different colors and a minimalistic design.
Sizes of one sticker: 165 x 115 mm (identical size of front and back side)
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.
Maik B. 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.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
