Before and After: Antidote Software

Done as a student project for a class at l'Université du Québec à Montréal, Antidote is a revamp of an existing software. Nicolas Ménard approached the project with innovation, usability and social/environmental impact in mind. Check out the transformation and read more about the project after the jump! 

"This is an experiment for my packaging class at l'Université du Québec à Montréal. Though Antidote is a real "made in Montreal" software. Take a look at this simple packaging which could replace those big software boxes with plastic cd cases inside. The packaging is sealed with the branded sticker. Before the label is removed, the upper and lower panel are locking the enveloppe, protecting the content. Instructions are printed clearly and indicated by the numbers on each tab. A card is included with the serial number and there's a place to write down the acquired activation number. The USB disk can be reused for other purposes after installation. The rest of the package can be recycled."
