Clever Packaging Designs

An innovative design not only provides information but utility.

We often consider the products we use and their packaging to be two separate things – the product is the thing we want, and its packaging is a piece of trash to be thrown away. These clever packaging designs, however, prove that a well-designed package can complement or even enhance the product it was designed to carry.
