Boxes, Type, Labels

I aimed to create a series of packages that demonstrated the concepts of paper folding and custom bilingual typography. These packages include ones for tea, take-out Chinese food, fortune cookies, jewelry, and fonts. I also experimented with different combinations of colors, shapes, font pairs, and types of paper.



I have always been a fan of paper boxes and packaging in general, and I like to play with custom fonts and apply them to different platforms / materials / fields. I tested a few different kinds of textured paper and try to use the original colors of the paper, not printing so much extra on it.


I used illustrator for designing the type, testing colors and making the shapes of the templates, and then I printed typographic designs on the selected paper. Finally I used a Silhouette machine to cut out the paper and glued it together with the tabs.




I received positive feedbacks from people on Behance, and the project was featured in the Graphic Design gallery. I think people are very interested to see the actual template designs and my thinking process, and it is easier for me to see potentials for improvements in that way also.
