Buon Cibo

This is a packaging project for the Kickstarter based company Candy Lab Toys. Their toys combine modern design with glamorous mid-century muscle car aesthetics. Also, as wooden toys, these cars recall a simpler time before plastic toys came into the scene. I felt like these were all noble reasons, so I wanted the packaging to evoke all of this from the get go. The diagonal lines that run all over the package are meant to evoke speed and motion. The use of illustration instead of showing the actual car through clear plastic is a play on how toys were made to stimulate the imagination and creativity of children instead of zoning them out as many do today. The kraft backdrop highlights the accent color to create an elegant contrast. Finally, the design of the cardboard box makes an emphasis on the ideal of children using their imagination to create their own stories.

The Concept

Centered around global dishes and the cultures that inspire them, Buon Cibo recognizes that cuisines and traditions best represent a country’s personality. The different colors emphasize the multicultural vision for this brand, while the pattern is a symbol of our similarities as human beings despite our different nationalities.
