Student Spotlight: Patron Saints of Design
This is what every graphic designer needs on their desk! Clever student project from Mike McVicar, a recent graduate of the University of Florida graphic design program:
"The Patron Saints of design desktop supply kit is a blessed set of essential supplies for graphic designers. This packaging project features four patron saints of different aspects of designs, cutting and measuring, typography, adhesives, and drafting. Each of the four containers features information about the saint along with the appropriate tools like scissors, type specimen book, tape, etc."

Student Spotlight: Juan Federico Rojas Frozen Meals
"This project is about a set of frozen meals made by a young chef, Juan Federico Rojas. This chef specializes in exotic and fusion flavors by mixing latin and mediterranean cuisine. His dishes are known for the sauces and dressings he adds as a final touch to his plates. The idea of the packaging was to show in a very clean and fresh way the fusion of the dressing with the dish itself and how this final touch gives the dish its final look. The elements in the dish were reduced to no more than four colors or ingredients, making the pack look minimal and bright. The photograph was taken from a perspective where the dish can be appreciated as a whole, leaving white space around it. The pack is accompanied by a sober and elegant typographic style that unify the brand. There are four different dishes, a mustard and jam jar. All of them accentuate the fusion of different flavors.

Frogfile Packaging by Change
When Change repackaged Harbor 100 exclusively for online retailer Frogfile, their goal was to maximize the perception of their paper as an environmentally superior copy paper and “assuage consumer’s ‘paper waste guilt”. Their solution brings the playfulness of children’s cereal packaging into the office environment.
Since copy paper brands are largely interchangeable, indistinguishable and driven by price, we sought to create packaging that would assuage consumer's 'paper waste guilt'. Our unique and elegant solution was to use the principles of origami; Each wrapper becomes a ' fold by numbers' origami project resulting in an origami tree! Office workers can build a small forest on their desks as a humorous reminder that they are indeed making a difference. Additionally, when stacked, the paper packs create a spruce tree design, complete with a birds nest!
Student Spotlight: Aroma Tea
Marko Gereci, a graduate student at Faculty of Graphyc Arts in Zagreb, Croatia created this one color package design for Aroma Tea.
"This work was done as a school project. The goal was to create packaging designs for a line of herbal teas made by an imaginary brand "Aroma". My approach was to use a traditional, ornamentic look aiming at customers looking for healthy, natural products. Here are the results."
