Contest Brief

We are a young business, specialized in designing decorative and functional objects such as clocks, shelves and hooks. We are starting to introduce some of our products in distribution locations and we need packaging designs to make our products "retail ready". Most of our sales come from our online store, so we still need the package to be easily converted into a shipment box OR to be able to put it in a slightly bigger box.

More about our brand:
- we strive to use as less material as possible (no over-packaging)
- we try to minimize our environmental impact by using low VOC finishing products and using packages that are recycled / that you can recycle.
- we want NO plastic in the composition of our package
- we like simple things that deliver a strong, sophisticated and high quality brand message
- our main colors (hence the name of the company) would be Black and Brown Kraft. Name of the company in English would be: Black & Wood.

Your mission, should you accept it will consists in:
- physically design a "clever" packaging (something different, that stands out and looks good) for our combo of 3 wall hooks.
- design the artwork (if needed) to be printed on the package.
the package needs to achieve several functions such as
- have a small compartment so that we can include the mounting hardware.
- secure the hooks properly so that they cannot "escape" the packaging during transport.
- all hooks must be positioned like a J (left or right)
- take as less space as possible so that we reduce the shipping/warehousing cost/space.
- we would like to be able to pack several items together as a "case" without it looking messy when it gets to the customer (stackable in a larger box)
- we must be able to hang the product on store hooks
- include our logo on the front as well as the mention: Crochets Muraux / Wall Hooks and the quantity (3) and the color
- some text will be added to the back of the package to talk about the company and give more specifications about the product such as installation tips, strenght of the hooks, materials, etc but that can be decided later in the process.

Included here are inspirations of packages we like, pictures of our hooks & hardware as well as our logos in PDF.

please make sure you DO NOT COPY any of the packages as they are for inspiration purposes ONLY.

If everything works out well with the contest winner, we would prefer to deal with the same "designer" for future projects as well so this contest could lead to several other designs.

thank you
