Using the theme “Sweets and Snacks as Gifts” students from the Cologne International School of Design created 20 fun and fabulous ideas, displayed as part of ISM 2012. Here are some of their offerings and notes from the designers.
Wishing You – a flavoured bubblegum in four animal shapes contained in a trianglar box atop a pencil. Each animal symbolises a different quality: lion for courage, bee for ambition, owl for wisdom, dolphin for friendship.
Choco Camera – A gift for children who enjoy taking photos. Load the camera with 5 different animal illustrations, get them to “take the photo” and out pops a flat chocolate version.
Jail Breaker – is more about the packaging than the sweet. To unlock the package you set a special date that the recipient and you consider special because he/she helped you out of a bad situation. You write a hint to this date on the “lock board” on the package.
I will share some more of these great ideas in a couple more posts.
