An exceptional experience

The dark design gives a premium look to the packaging. LIQ liquorices are handmade in small batches and are available only from selected retailers. The graphic design perfectly illustrates the unusual and mysterious concept and legend of this product. The names of the flavours are fitting: Night, Dusk, Moon and Sunrise.
The set consists of one large gift box to hold four small cube boxes with a variety of liquorice flavours. All sets of boxes have a dark black graphic design with bright colours highlighting the texts and logo. A combination of soft touch and UV varnish was applied. All boxes are also printed on the inside in a single colour, which varies for each flavour. The high quality cardboard helps to achieve a more natural and matt look and allows for excellent printing quality.
The box has double walls and a glued lid. The small boxes have a double layer of material for the opening to give a rich and aesthetic look and avoid visibility of the white unprinted parts of material. The boxes are produced from eco-friendly material, and no window material is used.

Jury comments

Liquorice has a ‘you either love it or hate it’ image yet you can’t help but love the package created for LIQ liquorice confectionery. In the primary box are 4 secondary boxes, each containing a different product but it’s the way these secondary boxes are perfectly fitting into the primary box.
The double layer of material, soft touch and UV varnish just adds to the in hand feel of what looks like a dark and mysterious product offering.

Lavish delights
A compact and extremely elegant affair. The gold foil elephant looks as if it has been attached by hand – the appearance of the packaging by itself is more than convincing in terms of the quality of the contents. The elegant look with its discerning hot foil embossing also increases shelf attractiveness. The hollow frame design is an invitation to touch as well as being easy to assemble.

Impressed by GPI team’s innovative concept, Nestlé adapted its strategy in order to progress this specific design for their After Eight Easter Egg carton. The design enables the consumer to acknowledge at one glance the unmistakable colour signature and clock silhouette of the After Eight brand, creating an emotional and nostalgic connection with the product. In addition, GPI designers have developed a clever insert to hold the product securely in place without the need for vacuum forming.
