Project Two: Southern Cross Package Design Awards - Hero Shot

Most tinplate packaging came in the basic 3D cylindrical forms. However the design was focused in exploring the limitations of tinplate, by still having a 3d form, by adding curves, embossing, engraving and funnel forms. Firstly steps were taken to initiate an understanding of tinplate, meaning it is easy to melt/mould/recycle, soft, highly corrosion and fatigue –resistant and non-toxic. Knowing that tinplate is a combination of steel and tin, it acquires these properties in order to use safely and further explore different shapes of packaging.

So my final packaging would be made out of tinplate and acrylic material. For the purpose of the mock up, icreated my packaging out of wood.
