the focus of the design was to be dynamic in the paper clip pattern. at the same time I wanted to keep a sort of simplicity with the neutral colors instead of screaming bright hues.
dynamic // one color // original scan image // dilation
didn’t make any changes to this design. it was suggested to bring the white over the larger edge in the back with the name of the product, but when I tried that it seemed a bit confusing on which would be the front of the box so I stuck with the original idea of the white space being on the right side.
simplicity // three color // altered image // asymmetry
with this one I adjusted the color to a greener blue which is less harsh of a contrast between the bright green. I also moved the green line all down to the bottom and made the bottom panel green. I replaced the collection of clips on the top with just one to really portray simplicity.
joy // full color // glyph // rotation
the only change made with moving the text on the sides to be at the same height as the 50 on the back. I played with doing a different color than black, but nothing really grabbed my attention like the black. it gives contrast that makes the colors stand out the most.
here is the second round of boxes. still need a lot of work to more directly show a describing attribute.
draft for designing a box to contain some fun little paper clips…who can have a voice too.
