Norbert Mayer project

Norbert Mayer project

Very often innovation comes from school workshops. Here is an interesting packaging project made by a design student, Norbert Mayer, for three medication products of a same family. I appreciated much the union of a minimal design, made of simple graphic elements, and the choice of a full yellow instead of the classical white (as normally used for this kind of packs) combined with the idea of white grids of dots and lines representing the respective organs treated. I found this project interesting for its countertrend conception of a particular type of pack, not so used to changings.

You can have a dream by the hands of a talented illustrator, a dream made of ink and color, a timelapse of contemplation while your eyes follow the movements of a pen on a white canvas or the colors expanding one step at a time. The nickname of this young “sandman” is Elfandiary, and here is his diary: elfandiary.tumblr.com.
