Paper craft with love

Fantastic paper craft by Kim Walltin, packaging designer based in Malmö, Sweden.
“I have been inspired and delighted by paper since when I studied Product Development and Design, where my thesis was a disposable snuff cup in just paper, aimed at restaurants. When transforming a one-dimensional sheet of paper to obtain a three-dimensional gut tingling shape, this is where the fascination lies for me. I create all my sculptures without the use of glue, using a tab system that lock into each other. A pretty demanding craft, but very amusing when you get to it. Paper has conveyed ideas and thoughts in both flat and folded form through the ages and still feels super relevant, even in our digital world.
It all started when I discovered the incredibly nice post modern buildings in my hometown Malmö and started to photograph and publish them in my instagram. I got a creative splash and knew I wanted to re-configure the impressions I got from these buildings from an artistic perspective. So it was natural for me to create this in paper since I already handle this ok. I have always been very fond of coulours, so setting the different color palettes from intricate concepts became an important ingredient. While I was working, I listened to the old radio show Eldorado, and from there came the inspiration for naming by the New Wave songs from the 80´s. I am extremely inspired by Vivienne Westwood and Malcolm Maclaren’s World’s End shop in Chelsea in the 80s and Dario Argento’s over-coloured horror films too. Everything that I like, I fit into the world of Future Days.”

Designed by Peter Schmidt Group. “Tea drinkers are individuals of strong character, people who like to indulge in a moment of deceleration in their daily lives, and this is the target group of Teahouse Exclusive’s “Everyday Line”. The packaging is of a bronze, shimmering quality and adorned with loosely drawn images of different cups and teapots, while thanks to a bold, colour coding approach, each tea variety immediately catches the eye. The typography has also been 100% handpicked, just like the teas themselves, with individual writing styles that promote their originality. This is as personal as it gets.”

Designed by Unelefante, Mexico. “Before founding Unelefante, I designed and produced jewelry and other fashion accessories for over ten years, so I know for sure a few things. Most people are not willing to take risks when buying a product, specially if it’s a gift, so, why not turn an ordinary something into a very unique experience. This is our main principle. Having this knowledge on hand and my passion for art and anything with an eye-catching harmony were catalysts when designing the Pollock bar and packaging. We change the colors to create new harmonies and to differentiate product lots. Also, labeling products can be hideous, specially if it’s by hand and you have hundreds of pieces in front of you, but it’s very fun to label the Pollock bars, labels are glued depending on were you have a better visual of the pattern created with the paint splashes. It’s relaxing.”

Marou Chocolate Treasure

Nice chocolate packaging, designed by Rice Creative, Vietnam. “Marou Chocolate hand selected the finest cacao beans grown on small family-owned farms on the remote island of Tan Phu Dong (Đảo Kho Báu), stretching from the two northernmost arms of the Mekong Delta all the way into the sea.

Nice chocolate packaging, designed by Rice Creative, Vietnam. “Marou Chocolate hand selected the finest cacao beans grown on small family-owned farms on the remote island of Tan Phu Dong (Đảo Kho Báu), stretching from the two northernmost arms of the Mekong Delta all the way into the sea. This is a truly the rarest of rare chocolate.

Production numbers are low due to the availability of this precious cacao. Rice Creative’s approach to the packaging was to maintain the primary elements of the brand, but introduce a different, more adventurous graphic language, with a vintage map of the area, and drawn calligraphy. We hoped to convey the spirit of discovery and rarity.”

It´s nice to follow up and see how well a product makes it to the market. Identity Works designed this Crisp Bread Concept for Leksands Knäckebröd. And can now tell that it has outperformed even the most modest sales estimations. “Currently 3 times expected volumes it goes a long way to showing the impact great products, ideas and craftsmanship can make without the need for media spends.” See how valuable it is to invest in solid design work, and proper packaging design development.

Here is the story about the concept: “Thin crisp bread is one of Sweden’s most loved household staples. During recent years a new premium category has begun to emerge through a number of newly formed challenger brands. As the ‘traditional’ crisp bread market leader, Leksands decided it was time to establish themselves in this rapidly expanding category. Their overall aim: lead it.

To achieve this they wanted to create an entirely new product, one capable of positioning itself as premium and modern. With flavour and format generation central to the brief it was clear this would be no ordinary rehash of an existing product. A competitor analysis revealed that many of these ‘new bakeries’ were actively trying to look authentic by creating an illusion of heritage. As a genuine, family owned bakery spanning 6 generations Leksands has no shortage of authentic heritage, stories and secrets.

Thus our key objective was born – tell the Leksands story in a relevant and appealing way for the modern, urban consumer. Delivery included concept, name generation, structural and pack design.”

Simply Chocolate is based in Copenhagen. “Up here it’s too cold to grow cocoa beans. But it´s hot enough to have a love affair with great chocolate. Copenhagen is a very old city with a highly vibrating pulse and plenty of room to nurture a new kind of chocolate. Since we began in 2011, a lot of people have shared our desire. Not just for what we do, but apparently also for how we do it. We appreciate that.

Simply Chocolate only uses the finest raw chocolate on the market and the best natural ingredients. We use the best of nuts, grains and berries. Like almonds, hazelnuts, and pecans. Spelt flakes and oatmeal. And, finally, cranberries, goji berries, coconut, bluberries, you name it. On top of that, we spice it up with liquorice, vanilla, cinnamon, chili, ginger and other wonders of nature.”
