Three teams from the packaging science program captured international awards for projects ranging from a skin care package to quarantine survival kits for shipping and gifts on the go. One team won first place in the United States/United Kingdom division at the Packaging Impact Design Award competition. They traveled to Monaco along the French Riviera to present their Golden Bee Skin Care package design during the Grand Finale at Luxe Pack Monaco.
“The packaging industry’s focus on sustainability was the main driving force for our design,” said Samantha Johnson, a senior from Michigan. “We created a package without any plastic that contains a sustainable product. Not only will it look beautiful, but it will be gentler to the environment.”
Two other teams won awards
in the annual Student Packaging Design Competition held in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, by AICC, The Independent Packaging Association.
