Young Package 2016

Packaging design has a special position not only in design, marketing and transport, but also in how it affects the environment. Paper waste makes up about 25% of household waste and it cannot be recycled indefinitely. Therefore, we have chosen a topic that can help reduce the amount of packaging waste and at the same time provide an additional use for consumers – PACKAGE UNLIMITED. Let’s cut down the proportion of non-recyclable packaging waste, and let’s think about how to create a package with multiple uses.

YoungPackage logoWe are looking for imaginative, multi-functional and detailed packages that can be used for several purposes.
