A packaging design for a sushi restaurant inspired by Kokeshi dolls and traditional Japanese art. which is a traditional Japanese doll. Kokeshi doll making has now come to be recognized as one of Japan’s most vibrant folk arts. Traditionally comprising a simple trunk and enlarged head with a few thin, painted lines for detail. They were originally exchanged as tokens of friendship, with messages concealed within. Through this packaging I want people to get that feeling of friendship and sharing as those are the things food can be associated with. The box is portable and you can eat directly from it.

What’s Unique?
The shape of the box is not like the regular sushi takeaway boxes.
