silika got their new product packaging by running a design contest:
Help us design a funky, urban, cool looking kids snack and lunch pack for cafes!
Check out silika's Product packaging contest…
Food & Drink
We sell Kids Snack and Lunch packs that include healthy food items and an activity to cafe's.
What's your vision?
We would like our snack and lunch packs designed. They are a box made out of card paper (see attachments for shape of box). We would like the following: - Our logo embedded on each side of the pack somewhere (see Tame the Monkey logo Main) - Our facebook, instagram and twitter logo somewhere small. - Text stating that the following: 'all activities accompanying this box conform to European Standard. EN71 PARTS 1,2, & 3' The little Recyclable picture. The box design will be printed onto 2 different materials: one will be kraft recycled brown card look, the other will be a white gloss card. The white gloss is targeted towards the younger children (pre-school) and the kraft is the primary school age. The designs need to alter slightly to match these age-groups. There are 2 different box sizes - one is a snack size, and one is a lunch size. Both will have the same design, but just fitted onto each di-line correctly. The attached designs are the look we are going for: perhaps monkeys swinging on vines / branches. We like the way a design can 'wrap' around the box. I also like stick figures, blackboard type look (perhaps for the older age group?). Words to describe design... jungle, monkeys, swinging vines, jungle animals, splatters, mess, healthy, organic, busy kids, we quite like the concept of drawings that look they were handdrawn by young children (stick figures? etc). Museums, Aquariums and Wildlife Sanctuaries may also stock this product, so could try some dinosaurs, fish and Australian wildlife animals also? We may print 3 or 4 different box designs but centered around the same sort of look. I have di lines, but please message or email me - email@example.com
For the Kraft box, we would like a bright sorbet and neon colour print (see the 'Seedling Box' attachment). Please also refer to their website for better photos of their type of packaging, we love it. http://www.seedling.co.nz. So thinking yellows, blacks, blues, pinks, greens, perhaps with some words floating around with the font scribbles (see the attachment Yummos font). For the Younger age group on white gloss card background (or maybe put some blackboard look behind it with bright primary colours but same design as the kraft??) perhaps just a few things different to make it more appealing and stand out to the 3/4/5 year olds. Di lines of both size packs are attached in ai. format. Hopefully we can form a relationship with the designer, as there will be further work around this project in the coming 12 months!
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Product packaging starts at $449.

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.
silika 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.
