If there are any regular bfrancesi blog readers out there, you may incorrectly assume the only thing I'm doing in grad school is Design Research. That's partly true, but I'm also doing an incredible amount of other work too, like product packaging for my 3D Formal Investigations class. Essentially it's a standard packaging project, but it's been a fun alternative to some of the other coursework I'm doing at the moment. My goal was to design a package for pastries that was easy to carry, easy for employees to pack, stylish, and didn't require customers to transfer the pastries to a separate platter for presentation purposes (i.e. no ugly boxes). And just to up the cuteness factor? The tote is designed carry mini pastries.
Enjoy. And go have a mini pastry. Thanks to my studio mate Jackie for modeling.
