The brief was to design a range of lunchtime, ‘Food on the Go’ carton board packaging for a high street food chain. I focused on asian cuisine, specifically looking at a way to make dim sum a viable ‘fast food’ in popular western culture. I received one of two design prizes for my work on this project from packaging company The Benson Group.
Designed to hold Chinese dim sum or gyoza, the pack can be used to steam the contents in a microwave as well as having an internal flap that can hold a dipping sauce.
The noodle box’s lid folds back to let restaurants display food without needing to incorporate plastic into their packaging. It also has a slot to hold chopsticks and has a recessed lid to allow the user to stack to heir food for carrying without a bag.
