Puppies Carbon Training Pads New Packaging Design
Client is Puppies - a brand well-known in the Balkan region for their high quality products with affordable prices. This is their new training pads product which combines the power of charcoal and the rest of the pads' well-known properties. Pads are pheromones scented, have the usual sticky bottom sides, a number of layers to guarantee it won't spill, and have an additionally added active carbon, which makes them one of a kind in many markets in the region, for the time being.
Pet product packaging, active charcoal-inspired
Active carbon or active charcoal has many properties suitable for this type of product, mainly around keeping the odor to the minimum. I decided to go with a very bold, black-and-white approach. In some initial designs I had more white in the packaging, thinking that would unify the packet with the rest of the products by Puppies, however eventually we opted out with a bolder statement.
What was finally chosen was a very bold packaging with golden strip across. The gold is represented by a yellow pantone colour until the printer changed it. A bronze colour was considered too, but we opted out to the best golden shade of all. The black background texture and the overall black and gold look was what best suited the product.
During the process the title had to be changed to a Active Carbon and eventually Carbon. Below is the design presentation for client and the final designs.
