With so many products lining the shelves, it’s important to have packaging that stands out amongst the rest. The way packaging is designed can make a big difference to product sales, especially in an age when sustainability and biodegradable options are most desirable. Your package not only has to look good in order to sell your product, it also has to communicate your brand identity, what your brand stands for and what that means for your customer.


With this in mind, here’s a roundup of some of the best packaging designs to help you think outside of the box when it comes to showcasing your products…


Patch It Up

We all know the struggle of trying to unwrap a plaster. Luckily for us, Bandiful has come along to save the day with its easy-to-use, innovative band aid packaging.

Show Your True Colours

This grocery bag was created to make us think about what we’re putting in our stomachs, and how much food is actually needed compared to how much we waste. Made with the intention of helping to cure hunger in New York City, it’s an incredible effective method for packaging your food.

Lighting Bugs

As the shining light in a relatively dull packaging category, we love how playful these lightbulb boxes are, particularly how the designer has experimented with shape to incorporate the product into the package design.

Nail Bed

It’s not often you see packaging that makes nails look good! This simple but brilliant design allows the product to hang from the user’s belt loop, allowing for easy access when working. The design itself is cool and sophisticated, transforming a commonly mundane product into something more exciting.

Walking on Air

Who needs a boring old shoebox when you can have this?! The designers for Nike Air have taken the moniker literally by sending out the popular sneakers in air-tight plastic bags. Not only does this give the illusion of floating trainers, but it also reduces the risk of any damage in transit!

Face Paint  

We’re a little obsessed with this fantastic packaging idea from Poilu! Using just one piece of cardboard printed on both sides to band two paintbrushes together, the brushes have been dyed to look like moustaches and beard combos, with hilarious results!
