Creative Packaging – Innovative or Just Plain WTH?

This week I’d like to share with you some creative packaging used in marketing products we use everyday, some have been launched and some are… well let’s just say still on the drawing board. Let me know what you think— Innovative or just plain what the hell?

The MILK carton

According to the creators, the dimensions are the same as a regular two-liter carton of milk.  ”It represents the content of the product in the simplest way, both through word and image.” Duh.

The dimensions may be the same as a regular 2 liter carton, but in my opinion you will get less milk because the content flows into the letters and wouldn’t the letters hold less? What do you think Innovative or what the hell?

Wine in a can by Jens Andersson & Jonas Forsman

Wine in a can makes it simple to take your wine on the go.  Each can holds a wine glass worth of wine. I guess you’d have to carry more cans if you are a heavy wine drinker. I wonder if they make these in a 6-pack? Avoid the hassle of wineglasses, opener and fragile bottle. This is a small convenient packaging totally made from aluminum, from which you drink like a glass. The cans are recycled in the same way as conventional aluminum cans.

The trampoline road is made of black rubber and runs through the Nikola-Lenivets forest in South-West Russia (I’m packing my bags right now). Personally I think it’s a great idea, here’s why: • An alternative mode of transportation. • Better for the environment. • Exercise. • Ohmygoddness FUN!
