AIM – The aim here was to come up with packaging for staples delivering a new and hassle-free experience.
A general stapler pin box delivers a very generic experience when it comes to accessing or taking a stapler strip out of the box. Also, the number of stapler strips provided is in generall a lot more than what an average user uses in a month or two. Thus reducing the no of strips to deliver a new experience was acceptable as it adds up to the quality of usage and popularity of the product it consists of.
Dox dispenses a single stapler strip one at a time using a very unique yet simple structure which not only helps it perform the dispencing activity but also provides structural strength. Also, Dox can be made out of the material used to make the existing packaging (cardboard or paper).
In this project making the structure using paper (to make it eco-friendly) was the most difficult job as dispencing is usually related to a plastic product that dispenses.
