This is the highest award possible for these kinds of products in the world. It can be regarded as the Oscar of packaging. This year's awards and certificates for the best and most attractive packages of 2014 was presented November 26, 2014 in Prague.
The Mistral Grand Selection Tea Case - is designed for Mistral finest organic tea so that at first glance the packaging and box evoke the feeling of something extraordinary. The aim was for the construction, graphics and design of the packaging to beautifully harmonize with the attributes of "Purity, Harmony, Relaxation" associated with Grand Selection tea. The purity of the case design for storing tea supports its reliable functionality.
The elegant graphics with the sensitively built gold embossing generates a feeling of harmony. This culminates especially after the opening of the case. The velvety soft touch dispersion lacquer in combination with a glossy varnish works subtly and tastefully while also evoking feelings of relaxation, while enjoying the inside of the packaged products provides a great experience.
Illui chocolate packaging set - prepared for premium Callebut luxury Belgian chocolate products. Available only in selected locations. The packaging is tasked with differentiating itself at first glance from the mass production of chocolate products, delivered to normal shops. Many details were addressed in their design and preparation. The intention was to create a collection of modern and exceptional packaging for original hand-prepared products and their successful individual sale.
The elegance of the packaging is hidden in the flawless harmony of the functionality and attractiveness of the design. The exceptional design solutions and clean lines used confirm the originality of the supplied product. Low migraine paints and varnishes or velvety soft touch paint were used for the production of packaging. All this highlights the uniqueness and quality of the materials used in their manufacture. The graphics from the workshop of Silvia Slimáková were sensitivity allowed to stand out from the sold products, while the packaging adds a mark of uniqueness.
