Mycoduct Packaging Design
According to the Natural Resources Defense Council, 1 billion people become sick due to unsafe drinking water every year. Because of the wide-reaching effects of unclean drinking water, we wanted to create a simple, safe solution. Our objective is to provide a tool for individuals to utilize so they can have access to clean water, no matter where they are. Due to the poverty level and other factors that can prohibit individuals to access clean drinking water, there needs to be a small and simple solution that individuals can use to clean their water. To provide an affordable and environmentally friendly option to clean the water, we have created a small filter that uses biotechnology. The biotechnology allows the water to be filtered through natural fungi that purifies the water. Not only is the filter reusable and affordable, but the filter is biodegradable and will not harm the environment.
I designed the package to function as both a wrap around the box to show the identity of the product, but also as an instruction manual when unwrapped. There are illustrative elements on the top and bottom to resemble ancient aqueducts. The packaging and illustrations were designed in Illustrator.
