Contest $150 - Retail Package Design

Discussion in 'Design Contests' started by Borduhh, Jul 26, 2014.

  1. #1
    Hello Designer Extraordinaires,

    We are excited to be looking for a design for our retail packaging! Here is some things we are including to make this easier for you:

    • In the .zip file attached, we have included a PDF and PSD of a package template including the cutout for the product display. You are not required to use the cutout.
    • In the .zip file attached, we have included a PNG of both our white and blue logos for your reference.
    Here is some info to get your creative sense tingling:
    • Our company sells high quality portable chargers for mobile devices. We have spent considerable time designing our product to be the best product in the market using the most cutting edge technology readily available.
    • For every product we sell, we will donate a portion of the profit to help developing countries get access to clean electricity. We call this program "Poworing Lives".
    • The capacity on our product is 3,000 mAh. This should be prominent on our package. It also has smart technology to prevent over charging/discharging the battery.
    The package design must be deliverable in PSD format and optimal for printing. We must be able to edit the text on the package for corrections.

    You can download the files here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/nek49ll9du9947b/Design Files.zip

    Best wishes to all.

    Thanks for more contests here at DP. I must ask, could you make a simple mockup on the template to give us an idea of what is what? I can see the battery pack template but not sure what is looks like in real life. do you have a real life image of the battery pack to show us?

    Thanks

    Great question Michael! Let me see if I can explain more. The retail box when folded together is 7 1/4" high x 3" wide x 1" thick. That should help create a small mockup for the design.

    Here is a mockup showing what panel corresponds to the finished product:
    [​IMG]

    As well, here is what it looks like when it is folded together:

    I hope this helps out.

    If you talk to your printing company, please ask for detailed coutout guide with bleed, trim, glue area and placement of barcode.

    Feedback is appreciated.

    So far this is the best design. We are looking for something that is simple and sophisticated. I would suggest mixing in the blueish color of the logo into the box design. As well I think that 3,000 mah is being shown too much. You can tone that down.

    Great work as always Michael! A few alterations:
    • The 3,000 has to come before the mAh. It is the same for and unit of measurement.
    • On the front you can remove the "poworing lives". That is just our donation program not our slogan. As well you can remove the QR code because I am sure we will not be using it (mostly because nobody ever caught on to these).
    • On the left side, I am not sure why there is a long black stripe. There should not be a hole there. As well on the back, there should not be any black as that is just a separated hinge and should be white.
    • Your design did not include the bottom flap in the template above.
    • I love the design of the logo on top, but I think it over complicates things. Can we remove that and the top 3000 mAh and just have the white stripe?

    As for the back of the package, my team is working on a more detailed outline of what it should include. We hope to have it to everyone shortly. Thank you all!

    As for feedback, please look at Michael's design above as it surely represents what we are looking for!

    Hi Everyone,

    This should help out with the back of the package. Here is an outline of what it should include:

    Section 1 - Product Description
    • Comes with the universal micro-USB cable.
    • Charges phone up to 2 full times
    • 180 day warranty
    • Small and convenient

    Section 2 - Poworing Lives
    • Title: We Powor Lives
    • Powor has teamed up with SolarAid to transform lives of over 598 million people in developing countries by giving them access to clean solar light. Every time we sell a Powor stick, a portion of that profit helps give a family access to solar power, doubling the amount of time children can study and work towards a brighter future.
    Hope this helps everyone!
