Proprint Summer Internship

Looking back on a great experience


Hello. My name is Aidan Kahane and I was an intern this summer at Proprint Services located in the GTA.  I have spent most of my time learning about the industry and working on projects to benefit my career in the future as well as get ahead in school. I am currently going into my second year at Ryerson University for Graphic Communications Management (GCM). We learn about all the different aspects of the printing industry such as design, pre-press, press, post-press, and marketing. Read More

Peckish Bird Seed Packaging Design

Shohaib Iqbal took on a personal project where he went to the supermarket to find something inexpensive on the shelves, take it home, and completely redesign the packaging so that the product could be sold for double the price.


He took three types of birds and based the packaging colours around them in order to make variations of his design. I think we can all agree that Shohaib’s design is a much more elegant and minimalistic design compared to the current one.

Brum Brum Bicycle Box Packaging


On your marks…

The creators of the Brum Brum bicycle have developed an innovative packaging design that transforms into a play house for the bike. The box is easy to transform, can hold the bike up, and allows kids to let their imagination run wild with the corrugated colourable walls. Kids can draw, colour and design their own little house and customize it however they want. Although this product is still under development, the prototypes have been looking really good and have even received awards for their design.

Lego Retail Augmented Reality Kiosks


Packaging and POS working together

Nobody does it quite like Lego. And if you had the pleasure of going into a Lego retail store, you know the excitement around their product display terminals. They have allowed the contents of their packaging to literally come alive on the box itself. It’s really quite something.

Mobile Aaplication

Using a simple set of coding, customers are able to download the lego app or use the camera in-store to hover over the page or box for the augmented reality to commence.  We then see the 3-dimensional moving image of the products you are looking at. This allows the customer to have a full feel of what the item will look like or what other possible things they can build using that same set.
