To Buy Or Not to Buy? It's All in the Packaging Design
This book presents a new approach to a design discipline that is one of the most challenging. Packaging is to a product as a dwelling or clothing is to a human being; its first utility is protection, but it can also be used to display and convey the charm and characteristics of what lies within. Limited Edition is a collection of hundreds of the latest and most innovative packaging crated in recent years and it's full of fresh ideas that utilize an incredible variety of unusual shapes, dimensions, and materials. Categories covered include clothes, shoes, cosmetics, food, books, CDs, DVDs, toys, and more, and there is an enlightening essay by Daniel Mason on Environmental Responsibility for Designers and Manufactures. Limited Edition is product of a collaboration between ten international designers that include Kazutomo Ryuko, SK Lam, Andrew Thomas, Shin Sasaki and Ann Kelly.
