I took on this project of designing packaging for cookies rather reluctantly, as though accepting the fulfillment of secret desires. This was a big opportunity of convergence of myriad pleasures: handmade paper & handmade motifs, text & compositions, graphics & model-making, screen printing & digital printing, manual processes & automated processes and innumerable trials & mockups. The joy & intensity of this project that lasted over several months is perhaps yet unmatched.
selection of handmade paper colours & textures, numerous swatches for colours of printed text & graphics, loads of test prints
distinct identities were proposed for each cookie box; however,the client eventually chose to use only one motif across all cookie packaging; nevertheless, to create distinction, the same motif has been employed in varying permutations across the different boxes
multiple profile templates to cut & fold paper and create the boxes from
making of the box
two packaging options were presented for the hamper designed: a bag and a box
cookies within each box are individually packed in poly-pouches; graphics were designed for these as well
