During the last week of September, some very talented members of our Great Little Box design team were honoured for their work at the 2017 Independent Packaging Design Competition in Las Vegas. The competition featured corrugated, folding carton, and rigid box categories, providing an opportunity to showcase creative packaging designs and displays.

In addition to the awards, two GLBC design team members also participated in a design lab competition while in Las Vegas. Participants were split into groups that contained a mix of structural designer, graphic/ prepress designers and students. The groups were given design parameters on the Sunday evening and by Tuesday afternoon, had to present their designs.
The challenge was:
- Design a standard floor display for 13oz bags of salt water taffy (provided by Sweets Candy Company)
- Design a matching family of displays, utilizing the 24oz bag for big box stores like Costco or Walmart (3D renderings)
- Design a paperboard carton for 7.5oz of taffy and design a counter display.
Congratulations to all the winners!
