Concepts We Wish Were Real
Inspiration comes from everywhere. Check out today's collection of concepts and get motivated.
Talk about standing out on the shelves! In a sea of pasta packaging that relies on inspiration from Italian tradition, this concept from Nikita is sure to catch your attention. With cleverly designed packaging, the pasta literally comes to life in the form of full, flowing hair.
The white boxes feature clear outlines for each character’s hair, and the natural shape of the pasta creates the texture of a full mane. While most people wouldn’t want to associate hair with the food they eat, Nikita does a great job of making it fun. The font choice and face design of the women on the packaging channel a bit of a retro feel, while the clean box and minimal packaging are modern and updated. Each woman’s face is identical as well, forcing consumers to not objectify the female on the front but instead notice the differences in the pasta and decide which one they’d like.

Breakfast never looked this good! Mihyun Sim has repackaged our favorite cereals we used to consume on a daily as kids and turned them into intergalactic novelties. Marshmallow and fruit flavored cereals are packaged into wacky boxes shaped like hexagons. Stackable for convenient storage, each container is given a small window along with a unique color for easy identification. Keeping with the space theme, an outer space pattern adorns the side of the box and extends to the front in a star formation.

The labels have hues that look like they were inspired by stunning sunrises or sunsets, creating lovely combinations of colors. The clear bottles allow the hues of the juice to act as a backdrop to the images, and a wide-mouth top makes for easier drinking.
