The packaging for I (Eye) am MIKAN focused on the expressiveness of eyes and the emotional power of eye contact – so much so that it always keeps eye contact. In order to reduce food waste, imperfect oranges were given a special plaster so that they could still be sold.
What did the judges have to say?
"Food salvage that goes straight to the heart! With the simplest means – a pair of eyes and a plaster – this clever solution managed to make bruised mandarines not just appealing but desirable. Ideas like this promote food salvage and contribute to solving the food waste problem, without adding packaging. A simple design solution with big emotional impact."Susanna Barrett, Creative Director & Co-Founder, The Studio
