I've been buried under research for the last few months and I've just returned to see that I'm buried under hundreds of Emails to get through.
While I'll work through them in the next few days to catch up, there was something I wanted to show you guys before I left, but didn't...
It is a packaging idea for people who distribute LibO on CD/DVD.
Granted, it's not going to be everyone's idea of "practical" or "professional" but it does demonstrate a valuable link to our values and gives us a chance to really stand out.
Because the package is made entirely from paper.
A4 paper and A3 paper, folded in on itself, to hide the edges and in a way that makes the packaging both a brochure, and a case.
It fits two Discs neatly, can be printed on any printer (bleed is accounted for).
It does not require any glueing or cutting (true to the values of Origami, from which it is inspired).
If printed on 100% recycled paper (as intended) it would show our commitment to sustainability. More than traditional PVC cases at least.
Above all else, it is actually just very nice to hold. Many people I gave it to said it reminded them of old 5.25inch floppy disks from "back in the day".
This might be more of an idea that sits well with us tree-hugging student-types, but I just thought it might be worth sharing.
If you guys think it's worth exploring, I can upload the template so you can print one and fold it for yourself.
It really has to be held to be appreciated I think.
And it may be the best existing indication of how I imagine our "branding language" could look and feel.
Simple, clean, honest, pure and vibrant.
Bernhard, Christoph, I'm really off-tempo here, if there is anything I should work on immediately (while I have this break) or anything I left unfinished please let me know.
