Invited by Meike Kraus at the ECV in Aix-en-Provence, I led from 2 to 6 March 2015 a design packaging workshop with the Master 1 group. In 5 days the 13 students (all women) had to design a packaging inspired by a personal story, a family ritual or an anecdote.
Rendez-Vous Culottés | Sabine Veyre
It is said that men appreciate women's lingerie. In my workshop at the ECV in Aix-en-Provence, Sabine Veyre proposes a series of three Rendez-vous panties in Kleenex packaging. The different styles of underwear (some very sexy and others a lot less), are designed for the evolution of a love relationship. The big pants are proposed for the first appointment (Never on the first night) for it acts as a deterrent to curb the impulses and propose another RDV instead...or maybe not after all.
Thé Pu-er | Menghe Zoo
Nice packaging with delicacy and beauty for Pu-er tea that comes in a solid cake. Developed by Menghe Zoo in my packaging workshop in Aix- en-Provence, this project is in the pure tradition of asian packaging.
Bonjour Philippine | Julie Pirovani
Inspirée par cette expression bien familière, Julie Pirovani a développé ce concept d,emballage pour elks amandes dans workshop donné à Aix-en-Provence au début mars 2015.
If you are a Quebecer, it is possible that this habit is completely foreign to you. However, in France, "Bonjour Philippine!" Is a term well-known to children eating twin almonds, or other twin fruit, or of those who, unintentionally, say the same sentence simultaneously. The next morning, a small gift goes to the one who thinks of saying it first.
Inspired by this well-familiar play, Julie Pirovani developed this packaging concept for almonds in the workshop I gave to ECV students in Aix-en-Provence in early March 2015.
