Individual pizza slice box concept keeps hands clean

Any way you slice it, this is a clever idea

Pizza and greasy fingers go hand in hand. It’s a small price to pay for one of the world’s most popular fast foods. But designer Yinan Wang has a cleaner take on it.

Geometric approach

I’m not certain if this could catch on. But the intention is smart.
Good packaging doesn’t just house a product. It interacts with it. And in the best examples – improves it.

How does it work?

Simply put: Tin / Aluminum alloy coated plates go in one end and perfectly laser etched impressions for each colour come out the other. Each plate goes on to be applied to drums for offset printing. It makes the entire process seem so simple. But under the hood, a complex symphony of stages bring it all together. It’s actually really interesting to watch it work.

The best way for everyone to understand it’s functionality was to illustrate it. So the Proprint Design and Production Teams did just that. *(4′ x 16′)

The Canadian passport has potentially earned the unexpected distinction of being the coolest passport to pull out at a rave. The pages of the new passport (released in mid-2013) are covered in fun and colorful UV-reactive images that can only be seen under a blacklight.

Oh Canada, you’ve done it again

Iridescent inks bring these passport pages to life.

No one said that National Security couldn’t have a little flare

The “secret” UV images are cleverly incorporated into the parts of each page that are visible under normal lighting so that the two complement each other when seen under UV light. These images, along with a biometric chip in the back of the passport, are all security measures designed to ensure that duplicating or forging a passport would be as difficult and complicated as possible.

Telstra recently launched their flagship store of the future in George Street, Sydney and as part of the store experience they asked us to create an iconic carrier bag.
Our goal was to bring ‘Spectrum’ (Telstra’s visual language of colour and angularity) to life in three dimensions. The idea was to create an innovative form factor that would be instantly recognisable on the high street and create wow-factor for customers in-store, all whilst being 100% recyclable and flat-packable.
