PACKAGING BOOKS – EYEBALLS
Making clever packaging unique and different for books, in particular, can be a perilous journey with many checks and balances. The least to say, packaging design turns into disaster once exposed to the challenge of critics and naysayers.
Best to get an outside opinion to discover fatal flaws as part of the proofing process before it gets out there. And before signing off on your packaging, check thoroughly and carefully the following:
- hold weight
- free from dampness
- hardcover editions, spine straight against box’s side
- wrap or pad, if necessary
I found in the Internet these custom packaging designs pieces exquisite:
Vinexport’s bag-in-boxes: wine packaging or old books – Awarded at the 2008 Bronze Pentaward, a worldwide packaging design competition, packaging was designed to support the brand identity by rendering the image of an old book to differentiate the Grapefruit product in the marketplace. This meant modernizing perceptions on the bag-in-box wines.
