Egg Carton Redesign

In 2015, my design class was challenged to pick a product that had packaging that could be made into something more sustainable and aesthetically pleasing. I chose an egg carton made out of plastic. Through a lot of trial and error, I came up with a unique packaging concept that was made from a single piece of cardboard. 


Process

 
To begin my design process, I sketched out nearly 100 possible design directions.  Next, I started to prototype my most viable options.
