Contest Brief

We are looking for two artistic and mesmerizing packaging designs for two of our products; one for our eco-friendly, bio-degradable, reusable Luseke grass straws and another for our vegan, compostable, edible flavored straws. Our organization "KlimSmart" offers nature friendly alternatives to various day-to-day products completely made from "earth" such as the Luseke grass straws and edible straws previously mentioned. KlimSmart is on a mission to ban single-use-plastic by making all of our products fro high quality raw materials. Each of our products represents an idea or tradition being practiced or forgotten from somewhere around the world; for example, our Luseke grass straws were invented by our ancestors in Africa and the product originated in Uganda and our edible flavored straws originate from India.Therefore, we would like to emphasizes how each of our products are unique and represents global contribution for a "green" cause. We have included additional background information that would aid you in designing the packaging for each type of straw. Although we want the designer to have no restrictions when it comes to the images and design of the packaging we would recommend focusing on the uniqueness that each product has and the benefits they bring to nature without sacrificing the luxury of the product.

Packaging shape:
For this contest we would be open to changing the shape of the packaging; currently, the packaging for both product are rectangular shaped.

color of packaging :
We are open to different colors with no restriction but, keeping in mind the origin, material, message and most of all impact of the product when considering color combination for each product.

Luseke grass straws:
Background info - The Luseke grass straws originated in Africa and is exported from our partners in Uganda (Ouroots), where hundreds of straws are grown and farmed by independent single mothers from nearby villages. Each straw is individually nurtured every step of the way, from seeded all the way to packaging. long ago before plastic was vented our African ancestors utilized Luseke grass as straws. By retapping into our roots we can recover useful practices such as these to help our planet.
