This will continue from August 1 — until January 16. NADÈGE wanted to contribute to the growing art community and decided to launch a series of unique art work from various designers from a variety of disciplines.

The first launch which is this Friday, August 1 with Virginia Johnson. Virginia is a textile designer and illustrator. Her design is inspired by French orange blossoms. These orange blossoms create a beautiful composition and pairing with the macarons. 

The next design is to launch September 5, by Steve Krug and Jennifer Weaymouth. This duo composed an avant-garde still and photographed this modern white-on-white composition. The design is fitting to NADÈGE ascetics and work exquisitely with the macaron box.

Brauer Medication

Brauer Medication

Brauer needed a packaging design that would best represent the company's natural home remedy. Black Squid Design steered toward a minimalist aesthetic with a decorative finish. The box, matched with the bottle’s label, is stark white plastered with a symbolic keyword that would quickly give the consumer an understanding of the purpose of each pill. A playful doodle hugs the label, abstractly describing the feeling you would get once you intake the product. The added drawing combined with the bright matching colored streak gives life to the packaging without excessively artificially coloring it.

What is the Future of Packaging?

What is the Future of Packaging?

As the founder of The Dieline, there is one question that I have been asked more than any other in my career: What does the future of packaging look like? It is the most challenging question to answer, predicting the future of an industry based on what I see today. 

Through The Dieline, I have been able to document and see the past, and the present state of package design and consumer products. In the past several years, I have seen trends come and go, and have seen packaging change and evolve. The global economic landscape has shifted and the business of design, and the role of designers everywhere have changed. But what about the future? What’s next for packaging?

This question has been on the top my mind, and on the mind of many design leaders and practitioners in our industry that I have spoken with in the past few years. I knew that the answer to this complex question was beyond myself, so I decided to create a once in a lifetime gathering of the experts to answer the question in the way it deserves. Meet The Dieline Summit. 

With The Dieline Summit, we intend to create a true future-forward discussion that challenges the status-quo, and inspires creators of packaging and products to help solve today’s global problems and change the world through package design. Lead by cutting-edge sociobiologist Rebecca Costa, the goal is to answer the elusive question with hard facts, and future insights from our 6 speakers, who together represent the industry on every level.

I invite you to join us in Paris at The Dieline Summit this November for a once in a lifetime inside peek into the future of packaging and consumer products.
