An enlightening experience

While doing my internship at Proprint Sevices, I was invited to attend the Esko 3rd annual Flexographic Packaging honours course in Ghent, Belgium. The course lasted 2 weeks and provided me with the opportunity to learn and explore Esko’s latest and greatest software, as well as experience the small city of Ghent and all it has to offer. With a population of around 260 000 people, the city of Ghent has a lot of history and was once the largest and richest city in all of Europe. The gothic architecture, beautiful cobblestone roads, bike lanes and delicious food are just some of the draws this wonderful city has to offer. The Belgian waffles, chocolate as well as the homemade jenever served at Dreupelkot were some of my favourites!

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.

Barilla Retail Point of Sale Bookcase Display

Just like Mama used to make

Barilla‘s point of sales display look clean and crisp. Perfect for the simple designs of today and emphasis on the product itself rather than the display without the product. It really lets the product speak for itself. I also love the nice navy blue colour so that it is gentle on the eyes. Simply beautiful.

This display has a header card with a French contest promotion.
