This is my project for bachelor grade at National Academy of Fine Arts and Architecture.
Humanity has always been seeking to learn and understand our surrounding. It would be great if we start studying the world from an early age. So I decided to create an unusual package for a children’s telescope. This package has both educational and entertaining feature. In an effort to minimize waste in production I created a package that brings a new way to use it after unfolding and does not necessarily have to be thrown away. The cardboard box is processed with perforation and when it breaks it unfolds into a map of the starry sky of the Northern Hemisphere. I created about 20 constellations of the northern hemisphere, which you can see from Ukraine. Illustrations collected in a mini-album with stickers. I also designed a textile backpack where it is convenient to store and carry a telescope. And I put the instructions for use on it. The map shows images of constellations and signs so that the map will be an excellent guide in search of adventure.
My goal was to create a package that does not have to be thrown away after opening and which has several sorts of uses. So the main feature in waste minimisation of waste and in its transformation into a children’s developing toy
