MossTreat by Dong seob, Kwon
Packaging Contents: Medical supplies
Packaging Substrate / Materials: Paper

Due to the increase of income and the improvement of health awareness, an increasing number of consumers are demanding higher-quality, safe, low-stimulating, and environment-friendly medical supplies. Also, not many products in the existing medical product market have a differentiated advanced design, and most of the medical products have simplified artless packaging, so there is a need for differentiated package design. Therefore, we suggest a medical product made of moss, an environment-friendly material that the customers can trust. The brand concept had a roadmap of including the concept of forest, moss, and medical product. After extracting the relevant keywords, the design concept was established as ‘The New Tissue with Moss’. The main target is the 30s, who prefer the trendy and functional design, with a high economic participation, high consumption rate, rational consumption, and who are aware of health and well-being. The main buyers will be the 30s, but the product is approachable by all age groups. Regarding the logo naming, it was designed in consideration of the main targets of the product. It is an independent word with Myungjo-style font posing the curved nature of the forest and moss to demonstrate natural and fine quality. The graphical aspect of the product was made to express the medical product in a detailed and realistic way, while emphasizing the nature of moss and forest. In terms of the color, the point color extracted by the moss and the monotone color were used to increase the product reliability and to keep the feeling of the original substance. Unlike the existing box-shaped design, the packaging shape was designed to demonstrate the differentiated structural packaging to attract customer’s attention. With all these brand packaging concepts, the medical product can demonstrate the reliability and credibility to the customers. Also, by applying low production cost to the environment-friendly product, the product can have high market competitiveness.

Packaging Substrate / Materials: Paper

Sets of Tableware for Camping, Made of Corn
This is the design of the package that will consist of environmentally friendly tableware made of corn.

Because the original color of the corn is yellow, I tried to express the original color without attempting to give any variation. The reason I chose corn as the material for eco-friendly dishware was because I found out that cornstarch products were 100% biodegradable when planted on the ground. So I came up with this corn tableware package for camping. I thought that if you take a tableware made of corn to camping instead of the disposable products, you can simply wash and bury it in the ground after use, and come back with light hands. So, to show that it is a camping product, I put the camping image in the background with transparency, and designed it with the characteristics of the corn tableware.
