Altogether 744 designers from 57 countries entered this year´s edition of the Young Package competition held for the past 22 years by the Model Obaly company. Their topic was Open & Play. The designs created by four students of the Ladislav Sutnar Faculty of Design and Art were selected among 40 best works.
One of them, Kateřina Puncmannová who studies visual communication at our faculty, was awarded the first prize in the category of university students. She has designed a package for a painting brush which can be easily transformed into a paper hat which protects the wearer from stains of paint. The jury appreciates the fact that Kateřina has not only designed a package but also a detailed concept which could be used in production straight away. The package is characterized by distinct and playful graphic design and minimum waste. This useful design has no doubt big marketing potential.
