Cookbook with Content

The concept of the Simply Cook Meal Kit allows the consumer to create a restaurant quality meal at home with an easy-to-follow recipe. The design needed to be vibrant but in keeping with the well-known e-commerce brand. It was their first step into the retail sector, so for the brand owners it was a key stage in their growth. The packs needed to be highly functional yet different to its competitors.
Specialist folding and glueing facilities were required to achieve the book style. This pack gives the consumer the opportunity to view prior to purchase and the unique tear opening reveals the recipe and product. A major challenge was to combine all of these features with a pack that could be filled before the final closure.

Jury comments

Helping consumers select ingredients to cook a dish at home is not new but this presentation makes it so appealing by housing the ingredients in a clever structure that presents everything to the consumer in an enticing way. Add to that the colourful graphics, appetite appeal and product story then you have a total package that invites purchase.

Luxury Logistics
Nespresso-Caps are sold as luxury products and the briefing was quite strict about this. But the hardest point was to insert the maximum number of pods possible in an imposed small packaging size. The packaging is made of two parts. With each pod nested in a different position to save space and keep a good visualisation of the products at the same time. This challenge was a good opportunity to improve the logistical performance of the pack.
