Packaging planning and prototype

DSC_1580 copy DSC_1579 copy

After researching for similar packaging to what i need to develop i found that there wasn’t many existing packaging.

I knew i needed a packaging that would open out flat and that was strong enough to support the weight of the blocks.

I also thought a transparent packaging would be an effective selling point as people would eb able to see the detailed laser cuttings on the exterior of the blocks.

When i research different plastics and contact some local plastic companies i was advised that polypropylene plastic would be best suited to what i was looking for. Polypropylene is easily cut and bent which was beneficial to me as i was making a unique packaging.

I then developed a prototype, scaled down to fit one cube. I did this to see if there were any structural flaws with my design.
