New work from Christopher de Hoog, a 3rd year Communication Design student at RMIT University, Melbourne, Australia. Check it out below.
Nearly rectangular—but not quite. Trapezoidal boxes might seem like a pointlessly inefficient variation. They can be close-packed, but only if they are stacked in an alternating, right-side-up / up-side-down pattern. Which is maybe OK for shipping in some cases, but unless the packages are designed for right-side-up / up-side-down display—(See: Coffeine)—maybe not so useful for saving space on a store shelf.
Still, they make a remarkably dynamic impression. To the extent that we’re accustomed to rectangular boxes, these packages create a near optical illusion. Heroically photogenic, as if you’re looking up (or down) at a tall building in perspective.
(Can you patent a polyhedral shape? After the fold...)
