lsowa got their new product packaging by running a design contest:
Creative shipping box for book seller needed
Check out lsowa's Product packaging contest…
We are a seller of children's books. We are a subscription box service. Once a month we send our customers a box containing several books. Our target audience are parents of children ages 0 to 6.
What's your vision?
All, please note that this is a re-launch of a contest originally launched last week. We have increased the award, revised the brief and extended the qualifying round by three days. We've also attached new images to better illustrate what we are looking for. We are looking for a design for the box we will use to mail our books. We have our logo and the type of the box we want. Otherwise, we are quite open to any designs. Please note, however, that we are looking for something more creative than simply our logo and name on a box. We prefer the fuller coverage (either our logo/other images related to books and reading/any images complementing the logo or lettering-our name, site, slogan). Please review the attached images. Those are just some ideas. Please fell free to be creative. The specifications of the box are as follows: - Roll End Tuck-Top type box (aka. Roll End Tray with Locking Cover, aka. Roll End Lock Front). See attachment. - 12" x 13" x 2.5" (30.5 cm x 33 cm 6.4 cm) - we are looking for graphics for the outside of the box - top and 4 sides. - box color - Kraft (light brown cardboard) - colors - 2-color print (below are the colors used in the logo) - charcoal - R: 89, G:74, B:65, HEX 594A41 - purple - R:229, G:214, B:233, HEX E5D6E9 Also, please note that instead of the charcoal, we are also open to using white (including the owl in the logo). The only must is that the inside of the owl in the logo include the purple color. Otherwise, we are open to switching the charcoal to white. - text on box (not all have to be included): - Liliowa Sowa (company name) - liliowasowa.com (our site) - czytanie najlepszą nauką (our slogan, please note the two instances of letter ą) - font - we like the combination of fonts used on the attached farmer's market poster. Those are just ideas and do not have to be duplicated on our box. However, we would like a font(s) that's clear and not too intricate. label - this box will be used as a shipping box and we will need to affix a shipping label to the top. The label will be 4" x 6 " (10.2 cm x 15.2 cm). Please account for that space in your design A note about the logo - the attached logo includes three colors. However, for the printing we needed to downsize to two colors. The colors listed above are two of the three included in the logo.
I've attached several examples of other kraft boxes with designs we like. Please note that those are just examples and you do not need to mirror any of the designs.
