Brief Explanation: We focused on old newspaper used to wrap vegetables with. Newspaper was used for good reasons -- for its moisture retention quality, which helps keep vegetables fresh longer, and for its reuse value. Describe the brief from the client: Design a package for a street vendor that sells farm-grown vegetables and fruits. The brief required something original, easy-to-use and low cost. Description of how you arrived at the final design: Under the Newspaper-->New Paper project, we utilized what was already there the newspapers and added an element of design that would be playful and make people smile; both those selling the vegetables and those buying them. By reusing old papers that would be thrown away, the project was friendly to the environment as well as to the budget. By simply adding dots or stripes to the old paper, we came up with a totally new package design. Indication of how successful the outcome was in the market: Sales grew by 20%, as did the number of customers. There was more interaction with customers. Because they liked the design, people didnt just throw away our New Paper but re-used it for something else. News of the low-cost, original design wrapping paper spread virally to other stores that used newspaper for wrapping. The New Paper project was not just a new design for wrapping paper but a pointer to a new and better lifestyle for us all.
