This was way too awesome not to post about here – Alex Creamer, a student at the University of Central Lancashire designed the conceptual NYC Spaghetti packaging:
“I created this spaghetti packaging for a university project last year. The brief was to package one of 5 difficult items i.e. eggs, a rose, custard powder, spaghetti or marbles. I chose spaghetti. The spaghetti sits on a 3d model of the chrysler building that was modelled on CAD by my friend Ben Thorpe. And then modelled out of high density foam at uni. Creating a spaghetti model of the Chrysler building!”
My only critique of the packaging itself is that it would have been nice to have the spaghetti graphic run all the way to the bottom of the packaging (ie. complete the building), rather than starting only at the top half of the box.
Awesome work, Alex! Via the Dieline.
