Latte Nail Wraps
The vast majority of us open every day with a warm cup of coffee. But, how about starting your day with a look at these gorgeous latte-inspired nails? This design makes it look as though you’ve just stirred your morning Cup o’ Joe.
While this design is pretty difficult to create with simple nail polish, you could just buy the wrap design online and then attach it to your nails with a clear varnish (it’s best to follow the instructions that come with the wraps).
The Cherry on Top
Some styles are always going to look good — no matter the current, fleeting trends. This deep cherry single-color look is beyond timeless. We do, however, recommend keeping it seasonal so that you don’t get sick of it.
Such a warm tone is especially charming during the cooler months as it beautifully contrasts with the weather. For example, this is a good style to have during the winter holiday season for the person that wants to look chic and sophisticated at their holiday party.
Neutral and Natural
We’ve recently seen the nude fingernail come back into fashion. This design idea is a great way to take that trend one step further by playing with the full range of skin tone colors. Thanks to the nude upper half, the chunky and colored French tips just pop.
It’s also an incredibly easy design to recreate — so no need to go all the way to the nail technician. Instead, with a few different polish colors and clear varnish, you could get this inspiring design from the comfort of your own home.
The Triple Chocolate Swirl
In the past year, we’ve seen neutrals and nudes take over the nail design world. We especially love this fun, swirly take on the classic browns, à la triple-chocolate color scheme. This design just beautifully showcases your natural nails.
While this design might be a bit difficult for a novice painter at home, a more experienced nail tech shouldn’t find it too difficult to recreate for you. You can also order nail wraps with a similar design.
The ’70s Are Back, Baby
There’s nothing new about floral patterns, but this design is a true through-back to the hippie ‘70s. While recent years have been dominated by light pastels, this pattern goes to show that this vintage color palette is back in style.
Thanks to its laid-back look and its not-too-serious mood, this beautifully muted design should be fairly easy to do at home. Pick a light base coat color, and on top, draw your flower design by lightly dabbing five dots and then extending them to the middle point.
We’ve been happy to see in recent years, a change in the general attitude toward certain colors. While blues and reds are always a popular choice (along with the whole range of purples between them), finally, yellows and greens are getting their time to shine.
After all, you can’t tell us that this forestry take on a French tip isn’t absolutely enchanting! Not only is it showcasing an underrepresented color, but it’s also displaying the beauty of the full spectrum of green. This style is especially great to rock in spring.
Stripes of the Tiger
People have long known that to feel like an apex predator in the urban jungle, you need to look on the outside as fierce as you feel on the inside. This beautiful take on the popular tiger-stripes pattern is a fabulous way to let that inner feline out.
Choosing this warm-brown color palette alongside black and white accents turns what could have felt like a heavy and tacky design into a classy and powerful look to complement any tailored suit in the corporate jungle.
An Autumn Flannel
The fall season is a favorite of many people, and we can hardly blame them. After all, what’s not to love about the crisp air, the kaleidoscope of changing leaves, and the smell of pumpkin spice from every corner?
It’s the perfect time to embrace your inner fall girl and go all out on flannel-inspired nails. This cozy design is sweet and warm, but thanks to the pattern being on only a single nail (or two), it stops it from feeling overwhelming.
Can we all agree that glitter absolutely makes everything more fabulous? Because if you don’t, this nail design is the perfect proof that we’re right! This glittery bronze color elevates this look in a single stroke from drab to glam.
To make it even better, the design adds a half-vertical pink coat to two nails for a sophisticated extra oomph. This look is absolutely perfect for a glamorous holiday outing. Can’t you just imagine how heavenly it would look with a New Year’s Eve dress?
There’s no better way to welcome the end of winter and the beginning of spring than painting your nails with bright colors and pretty patterns. This design manages to steer clear of the overdone pastels while still feeling colorful.
As for the art on top of the colors — the artist who created this design cleverly used golden flakes to create a “sunlight between leaves” effect between the darker branches. It’s truly a beautiful and simple trend that we highly recommend trying out!
From Paris With Love
While we might love the classic French tips look, even we can admit that that white and pink combo is somewhat overdone. Plus, let’s face it, it’s kind of boring. So, here’s a perfect way to spice up this old classic.
Creating a fun pattern like simple flowers, leaves, or these pretty hearts is a perfect way to change your French tips up for any occasion. These dual-colored hearts would be perfect for a Valentine’s Day date or a cool “Queen of Hearts” costume on Halloween.
Some things just go perfectly together — like peanut butter and jelly in a delicious sandwich, or ketchup and mustard on top of your hot dog. So, why not be inspired by our favorite picnic combos?
While this might feel simple and almost basic, out in the park or having fun at the pier, this red and mustard look is perfect for any sunny day. After all, if it’s good enough to eat, why not let it decorate your nails?
Five Shades of Fab
Do you want a fierce nail design that works perfectly both for your day at the office and your night out at the club? Then this look is absolutely perfect for you! Let your nails move with you through the day with the gradient design.
Look, technically, you can create this style by using any color gradient. But, we definitely recommend using shades of brown like in the photo for a look that is extra professional while still giving off a fun flair.
After a few unsteady and nerve-racking years, design companies around the world felt that we all needed calmer colors in our lives. So, 2022 was the year of greens and sages — symbolizing purification and wisdom.
So, of course, this interior design trend made it into the world of nail art… and we’re so happy it did. Sage is the perfect color to add a calm influence to your daily life. Plus, it goes beautifully with the beiges and grays that are so popular right now.
Alright, this is definitely not a design for amateurs, although we do encourage creators of all levels to try — just for fun. Themed nails are the perfect way to ward off that seasonal blues and make you feel like every day is special.
For something that looks this good, we suggest either going to a really talented nail tech or ordering glue-on nails with a cute seasonal design, so you look perfect for your day out to the pumpkin patch.
On Point Pink
Although we love seeing super complex designs on people’s nails, you don’t have to sit with your nail tech for five hours in order for your nails to look absolutely fabulous. A two-toned design can be just as effective as a complicated pattern.
We do suggest keeping to two similar colors so that the full effect feels effortless and clean — going with a lighter and darker hue of the same color is perfect for this. Then, you can play with the added features (like drawing a simple line instead of a dot).
Cow prints (not to be confused with the similar yet more intricate leopard prints) are definitely a nail art staple, mainly because you can easily freestyle the splotch shapes, and they should still come out looking cute.
Keep in mind, though, that overdoing any print like this can make it look overly tacky. By creating the pattern only on the tips (and extending them just a little over the line), you can perfectly keep this style looking stylish and unique.
Cottagecore — the aesthetic that romanticizes life in the countryside — like simple dresses and picking mushrooms, is hardly new. In fact, it’s had a pretty serious online presence since 2017. But, it’s definitely gone viral in the last two years.
This intricate design brings together different aspects of Cottagecore imagery in a beautiful collage. This is, however, one of those designs that are going to be extremely difficult to recreate at home, so just get a wrap with it on! It’s the perfect accessory for fall.
There’s nothing cozier than a beautifully knit sweater as soon as the weather turns and starts getting cold. So, why not let your fingernails join in on the cool fun with this snug design?
This look might seem complicated at first glance, but the truth is that it’s made up of easily created shapes (lines and diamonds). The illusion works by making it feel more complicated than it actually is — just by using different colors and several knit designs to adorn your nails.
The sakura tree, also known as a Japanese cherry tree or the cherry blossom, is world famous for its beautiful delicate blooms that flower every year in early spring. So, what better way to celebrate that than with a minimalist design that reminds us of that marvelous sight?
It’s also pretty easy to do on your own — although you might want some help if you want a small extra pattern like the leaves and branches in the photo or white sakura flowers.
Say hello to the hot season with these bright tips in the perfect summer palette. Keep in mind that a design this sunny won’t be the most diverse accessory — it sadly won’t work with every outfit in your closet.
Your best bet is to either wear something with at least one of the colors from this palette on it, or stick to neutral whites and browns. Whichever you choose, you’re sure to look like a ray of sunshine.
The Blushing Gradient
From hair color to nail art, for the past few years, ombre designs have dominated the styling world. It looks, however, like there’s a new colorful trend around — the color wheel look. We think there are two reasons for this change.
Firstly, creating effortless ombres at home is pretty hard (using a single color on each nail is just a whole lot easier). Secondly, it lets you play with a whole lot more colors to create this edgy look. Will you try it out?
Before we dive into this trend, we want to make one thing clear and that is, muted nail polish colors (like pinks and whites) aren’t going anywhere! After all, the classics are classic for a reason. That being said, it looks like many of us are looking to shine bright right now.
A neon nail color — such as bright orange, zingy green, or loud yellow — is perfect for a little extra oomph to your day. While these might seem perfect for the summer months (and they are), we also recommend getting these colors in the winter to bring a little sunshine to your rainy days.
The Marble Effect
What’s more luxurious than marble? It’s no wonder that marble-effect nail art has become so popular over the years, and it’s still going strong. While you can go to a nail technician to get this style, this is actually a look that you can achieve at home!
Take a cup of water and drip some nail polish drops in the colors that you want on top of the liquid. Then, with a toothpick, swirl the color until you get a marble look. Finally, gently dip your nails in the polish. Then, just clean the excess polish from your cuticles, and you’re done!
The Spring Wiggle
While it might not seem like it at first, this trendy design proves that sage and baby pink goes perfectly together — especially when you pair them with this delicate gold line. Combining these colors gives this whole design a light and classy feel.
While half-and-half nails are nothing new, making the barrier a wiggle definitely adds an extra whimsical layer to this design, which goes perfectly with the unusual color combination. We absolutely love this look for early spring!
Somewhere Over the Rainbow
If you’re a “friend of Dorothy” (or a friend of a friend of hers), this over-the-rainbow nail art is the perfect way to display your pride (this is also a great look if you just like pretty rainbows, of course).
Keep in mind that in order to create this delicate and striking design, you might need the help of a professional nail artist. Also, don’t forget to add that sweet little cloud at the corner of your nail.
This butterfly and cloud look is one of the most delicate and feminine designs we have on this list — and it’s absolutely perfect for spring! It’s also not as difficult for a good nail tech as you might think.
The secret behind this beautiful look is using nail stamps. If you’ve never seen them used, nail stamps are created by using a plate with an inlaid design where the nail polish can pool. Then, with a special tool, the design can be transferred to your nails.
While overly complicated and ornate designs feel like the trendiest thing out there, we can assure you — a sweet and simple look can be just as effective and popular. This lovely nail art, for example, is the perfect way to dream of sunny weather.
It’s also extra easy to do at home. Choose a light and breathy shade of light blue for your base layer. Then, on top of the base, dab small blots of white nail polish with a thin brush until they look like cloud clusters.
Pop of Color
If there’s one time of the year that’s not ruled by light, soft, neutral color combos, it’s summer. Summer’s the perfect time to go all out and embrace those bright, neon-esque looks. But, that may not work for everyone.
This design, though, manages to blend the fun pop neon brightness — while also keeping it on the softer side by going for a more pastel color palette. We absolutely love their multi-colored rainbow nails for the warm months.
This delicate design is the perfect way to bring back a bit of that child-like innocence back into your everyday adult life. Also, keep in mind that for a professional nail tech, this shouldn’t be too difficult to recreate.
You see, this design uses a whole lot of nail stamps to achieve this adorable emoji look. This is definitely not a quick and easy nail art to do at home. But, we absolutely recommend it for a special occasion!
In the fashion industry, every trend you thought was long gone, tends to find its way back into the popular looks. We’ve seen it happen with bell-bottomed pants from the ‘90s and fanny packs from the ‘80s. So, why not bring back psychedelic?
The psychedelic patterns that dominated the ‘60s are definitely back — and honestly, looking at this nail art, we have no idea why they ever went away. This fun and colorful heart design is absolutely perfect for Valentine’s!
I’m Melting! I’m Melting!
With semi-nude nails, where most of the nail only has a transparent base on, being so popular nowadays, the creative artists of the internet have found all sorts of ways to still make our nails look exciting!
This pop art-inspired design adds a fun and colorful twist to this otherwise neutral look. It’s especially great for beginners to try because the flowy drip design means that you don’t have to try so hard to make everything look uniform.
The Magic of Bedazzling
In recent years, it has become more and more popular to use 3D objects and gems to give your nails that extra pop. While, technically, you could glue on just about any small thing on your nails, we recommend going with subtle touches with this.
The best way to achieve this majestic look is to start with a clear or light base color, then glue on the 3D decorations. While you could go all out with an intricate nail polish design as well, if you don’t, you allow the 3D décor to be the star of the show.
Judging by these trendy nail designs, baby pink, sage, and gold are the color combo of the year — and for good reason. Just look how beautiful they look together! While this design is extra luxurious (it even uses gold leaf!), you don’t have to copy it.
Instead, get inspired by this fabulous look and create your own simple design that incorporates all three colors. After all, you already know that they go together absolutely flawlessly. How would you do it?
New Years Confetti
While we usually think of confetti as a loud and overwhelming experience (also fun and magical, of course), it can become the perfect inspiration for a beautiful and elegant New Year’s Eve nail look.
You can do that by taking the confetti down a notch. These black, white, and gold dots on a clear base have taken the essence of the New Year’s confetti and turned it into the perfect elegant accessory.
The Gold After the Storm
If you’re looking for a mature yet whimsical look, nothing works better than a minimalistic graphic design. This adorable yet sophisticated take on a rainbow and sun makes for the perfect subtle nail composition.
What you need most when attempting to recreate a look like this is a really steady hand — seriously, it’s a lot harder than it looks to get such clean lines! This, though, just proves that everything is better with a bit of gold.
The Perfect Sunset
Taking inspiration from nature to create beautiful and touching art is hardly a new thing. So, understandably, nail artists have wholeheartedly embraced the natural world and brought it into their work. We’ve seen all sorts of depictions of nature in this list.
This design, however, is particularly beautiful, in our opinion. With the help of small pieces of sponges, this design manages to capture the breathtaking, dream-like quality of a perfect sunset. If you decide to try it out, we think you’ll discover that it’s actually not that difficult to recreate.
What better way is there to celebrate spring and summer blooms than with the lightest and simplest flower around? Creating a rose in full bloom or a large sunflower on your nails might feel like an overwhelming project.
This daisy design, though, is perfect for those warmer months and, with some practice, easily achieved. It’s also simple enough that you can easily add your own personal flare to this look in accordance with your skill level.
Pop, Pop, Polka Dots
Just like other current vintage trends, it looks like polka dots are back to being beloved by all ages. Seriously — you don’t need to be a kid to rock this fun and whimsical pattern this coming year!
Luckily it’s both fairly easy to create and to customize to your own personal taste. For a polka-dot summer look, go for bright rainbow colors. For a more nuanced winter ensemble, go for neutrals or the classic black and white.
Pearls of Wisdom
Many of our younger readers might associate pearls with their grandma (or your elderly aunt). But, we’ll let you in on a little secret — pearls are ageless and timeless. So, no time like the present to embrace this accessory.
See for yourself how elegant this light and subtle sprinkling of fake pearl jewels makes this nail design look like a million bucks! Let your inner Audrey Hepburn out and adopt the pearls into your personal style.
Barking Up the Right Tree
With the flowers and fruits slumbering, fall and winter are the perfect time to pay homage to those less celebrated parts of our beloved trees — the leaves and the bark. This natural tribute consists of simply embracing shades of brown and green.
The reason this design isn’t plain and boring is, of course, due to the clear shimmer nail polish that has also been applied to the nails. This look is the perfect accessory for hanging out with your friends at your favorite cozy coffee shop.
Swirl it Up
Abstract nail art has been a major trend for quite some time now. But, it looks like this year is the year of the swirl, and we totally understand why. This trend has near-infinite possibilities, as changing the colors you use, or the size of each swirl is going to make every design completely unique.
Also, out of the abstract nail art “family” (like blobs or random shapes), swirls are fairly minimalist and subtle enough that they still make you look elegant no matter what. Finally, with this design, you can match your nails to the seasons!
The Nude Ombre
Obviously, we love how color wheel nails (where each nail is a different color) have become so popular. But, we want to make it super clear — the classic ombre look is still extremely trendy. After all, it’s a classic for good reason.
Nude or pinkish ombre styles are always going to be in style, as their simplicity and elegance effortlessly go with everything. A night out with your friends or a day at the office, these nails are perfect for all of it!
Red and green might feel like the ultimate color combination for the winter holiday season. But there are all sorts of other ways to make your nails feel festive without looking like a Christmas tree.
These purple and white nails are very merry, yet they’re still subtle and elegant enough to make you feel like you fit right in at that fancy holiday party. What really cinches this look is the light use of gold.
Who said that you need to celebrate the coming of snow with dark colors? We say, embrace the light during the darkest days of the year! This design takes inspiration from everything that makes the winter months magical.
By incorporating those detailed snowflakes and the intricate knitting pattern alongside the light blue and white color palette, this design manages to be both cozy and light. It’s perfect for enjoying those first few snow days of the year.
45 Creative Packaging Designs That Practically Sell Themselves
There is an art to designing packaging for the product. Though most of us don’t pay as much attention to the packaging as the actual product, every now and then, somebody’s hard work pays off. In fact, sometimes, the reason we choose a product is because of the packaging itself. Just like these creative packaging designs that practically sell themselves. Check our compilation of fun and inventive packaging designs that catch your eye and don’t let it go.
Gnome You Didn’t
A nice piece of crusty bread with soup is always a welcomed addition to any meal. So stopping by a bakery and grabbing one on the way home can help make a good impression on whether you are just eating with the family or heading over to a friend’s house.
But if you bring it wrapped in this cute and perfect packaging, it will get even more attention. The designers of this loaf wrap were ingenious in creating this gnome inspired bread bag.
Noté Another Headphone
Music can help you de-stress after a long day or make that commute home a lot easier. Nowadays, we all have a mini record store in our pocket, and the only other thing you need is a good set of headphones.
There are so many to choose from, though, that even the prospect of choosing can be challenging. The headphones’ graphic designer understood that and thought they would try to craft clever packaging to set them apart. They did a great job with this taking a little inspiration from sheet music.
Cereal can be boring when you get to be an adult. All they want to do is show you nutritional facts and the benefits of the cereal. But remember when you were a kid? The packaging and toys were just as important as the meal itself.
Well, these smart marketers for this honey-flavored cereal understood that some of us still look for that. So they created this cute and eye-catching packaging for their Beehive Honey Squares.
There is a large Italian community in New York, so it is no wonder that there is a lot of pasta and culinary products that come from there with a little Italian flare. But how do you set your stuff apart from the rest then?
If you’re this pasta company, you trade on iconic images like the Empire State Building. Such a unique idea and definitely super creative. The only question we have is there different lengths of pasta, or is the box just designed like that?
How many of us hate when we get a pizza, and it is greasy. All of that grease gets all over your hands, and sometimes no matter how many times you wash your hands, it still feels like it’s there. Well, this pizza box designer has an answer for that problem.
This box comes with a segmented pizza section that can be pulled out and folded over, so your fingers never have to touch the pie and stay clean. Where has this been all our lives?!
Not sure what these pastries are made of or even if they are that good, but the packaging would make us stop and consider trying the product. Using the design and shape of the pastry, the designers did create a pretty creative packaging.
One thing can be said though; the packaging is way more enticing than the actual product. At least in or mind. What do you think?
Hanging Around for Tea?
Tea has been around for millennia, so there is no way to make it more interesting or introduce something new, right? Wrong! Just check out this inventive tea and its packaging. Not only does this tea have a creative packaging but also a unique design.
Crafted to hang off your teacup while it steeps, these teabags are one heaping ton of creativity. Once the concept was created, it only made sense to package them in a little closet. Hanger Tea hanging up in its box just seems right.
How Things Work
The designers at “City Harvest” wanted to make even their bag stand out. How do you make a grocery bag creative, though? Well, they figured it out, and the design definitely would drive many people to choose to try their store.
When you eat, the food goes through your stomach right well then why not use that as the foundation for your graphic design of the bag. So clever and kind of cool.
When you’re designing packaging for a natural honey, you may want to add a little something special to garner some extra attention. There are many ways you can do it, but the Honey Made by Bees packaging is certainly different.
Crafting the bottles not only to look great separate but when merchandised together, the designer knew what they were doing. These bottles connect together to form a honeycomb pattern. Not sure why no one else thought of this before!
Maintaining your dog’s dental health is super important. That is why most owners invest in good-quality chew sticks that help with this part of their dog’s life. The product itself may not be that entertaining, but the packaging for this brand certainly is.
Whitebites Dog Snacks come in a fun box with a cute face and a see-through window where the pup’s teeth would be. This packaging shows not only how white the pup’s teeth will be but how happy they will be with the treat.
All Brushing Aside
Painting can be either really fun or quite the chore. But maybe with some comedy and smiles, it will tend to lean more to the fun side of things more often. The paintbrushes you use are typically just considered tools, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be fun.
Take, for instance, this pretty stellar packaging for these mustache brushes. Not only is there a fun drawing, but you get a big brush and a small one. This is just a clever idea and one that helps the product get noticed.
Smell That Inner Peace
There are few products where packaging plays a bigger part than in cosmetics, especially in fragrances. There are people that collect perfume bottles; that is how much the design is art for the brand’s recognition.
So when you have a perfume with the name Zen, you need to make sure the packaging gives that name its due. These cute perfume meditation stones are just one of the bottles available. The designer definitely was able to capture the essence of the scent with this one of a kind design.
Message in a Bottle
Making a boring product interesting and fun is part of the challenges when you are a package designer. Take, for instance, water… not much exciting about it. But when you tap into the message in a bottle kind of mindset, suddenly there are a plethora of ideas.
This design tapped into not only that aspect but the ship in a bottle. So to make it more fun, this water bottle is fitted with a tiny boat that will be dry-docked once you have finished the bottle.
Orange You Happy?
Getting kids or even some adults to drink their juice is challenging. But if the packaging is fun and their product good, you may have a winning combination. These fun little orange juice boxes have at least one of these boxes checked.
Designed to look like an orange wedge, these boxes are fun and innovatively designed. We don’t know if the juice is good, but we’d still be willing to try it thanks to the packaging.
Olive the Idea
There are so many things about this olive oil’s innovative design that makes it a winning product. First off, the overall package design resembles an olive, and that is a fun little touch. On top of that, the packaging is divided into a serving size perfect for that salad you have for lunch.
Plus, the designer has made the packaging able to hook on to the side of whatever dish you are taking with you. This is just a really great idea!
How fun is this packaging? No need for your tissue dispenser to be boring. Now you can have this cute little pocket that will dispense them and make the peak of this mountain look snowcapped.
This is a fun and inventive design that can be a good one for the kids to keep in their bag. The bright colors and imaginative design will make even boring tissues seem fun and efficient.
Origami Another Cup
Japanese culture has a very special place in it for tea. There are ceremonies and medicinal use and so tying your tea in with another cultural aspect could be a great way to sell you tea. In the case of Green Berry Tea, they opted to use origami.
The mixture of the two aspects makes for a unique and very inventive tea bag. Not only will you be getting better health-wise, but you will have something pretty to look at when shopping for your green tea.
Having a box of matches handy may not seem that important anymore, but it is. In fact, matches are something you should have in your kitchen or your first aid/survival kit. There isn’t much need for fancy matches; that is until you see these matches.
The packaging is perfect. After all, trucks are meant to transport and store things, right? So why not play on that to make a matchbox that looks like you are hauling your matches from place to another? Pretty smart, Ford!
Instead of asking what is in that juice box, why not give the consumer a way to tell? Most fruit juice boxes do this in the traditional way. Just slapping some images on the box of the ingredients. This works, but why not get a little creative?
Kind of like the designer for these juice boxes did. Instead of just an image, why not make the juice box look like the fruit that is inside.
Butter Be Single
When you are trying to watch your calories or need to know exactly what one serving is, this butter has got you covered. The fun packaging is designed to not only give you a perfect serving size but with a butter spreader too.
This a perfect packaging concept for small restaurants or even hotels. Not only does it give you a single butter delivery system, but it is shaped like a butter knife. Ten out of ten on the packaging design,
Metering Your Seasoning
Unique salt and pepper shakers are not a new idea. But packaging them with a window to show where the levels are at maybe a new one. If that is what you intend on doing, what does the package need to look like then?
Well, what better a package design than a set of batteries. This allowed the designer to play with the idea of battery levels. So cute and really creative!
Hive An Idea
BZZZ… that the sound of the bee as they make the honey that ends up being packaged in this inventive package. BZZZ America Honey has come up with a great concept that not only acts as packaging but a transportation device too.
On top of that, you can remove the lid in stages and use it as a table setting too. The designer of this little piece of packaging was inventive, to say the very least.
Okay, so what do you do when you have a milk called Molocow! Well, you start playing with the idea of science fiction, and you end up settling on an alien abduction theme. This then leads to this super awesome milk bottle.
Cows and alien abduction seem to go hand in hand. The mockup of this packaging is enough to get our sign off. Even if you don’t like milk, this bottle would be worth the purchase.
Slice of Tissue
Kleenex has been around for decades, and we have all relied on them at some point to ensure our sniffles got cleaned up. They have always given us a lot of creativity when it came to the packaging.
But these unique fruit-shaped boxes are on a whole new level of creativity. They come in several different fruit shapes, but they would be so much better if they smelled like the fruit too!
Sushi to many is not a food that is easy to take out. Unless, of course, you are getting those plastic trays, but this designer for the Sushi-To-Go-Box has made it not only possible but pretty cool-looking.
Using the chopsticks as the handle was pretty ingenious. Even the color pallet is inviting. Everything you need comes in the box, and now we can all enjoy sushi on the go.
There are few movie franchises that are more lucrative or popular than Star Wars. But whoever looked at R2-D2 and thought popcorn maker was a genius. The cute little robots domed noggin definitely looks like a bowl.
We are sure the designer of this piece and its packaging walked away well paid and proud that they had developed this creative design. And we are confident that many of you have seen this; you are all trying to find where you can get one. We know we are.
Not Just Angel Hair
When you are crafting a new product line, the packaging is often the last thing you think of. Sometimes that is a good thing because you can use the products as inspiration. Like this brand is with its cavatappi.
The pasta translates to corkscrew, but they look like curls. So the designer took this idea and crafted an inventive and one of a kind packaging. We wonder what the other pasta boxes look like.
Isn’t it Marvelous?
One of the most popular comic book characters on the Marvel roster is Wolverine. A member of the X-Men and a solo star as well, it is no wonder that the character has seen a lot of success in the movie theaters.
That is why even the Marvel Store has taken time to market and design packaging that used the iconic feature of the character: his claws. This bag is just fun and well designed.
Laundry detergent is not that exciting but a necessary cleaning product. At least that is what we thought until we saw this packaging form Spark detergent. Its unique shape and coloring make it look like a washer.
This seems like it would be so obvious, and so we are sort of shocked that no one has thought of this before. But even still, the designer that did was clearly creative and one that likes to think outside the box.
There is no reason why packaging has to be so unique but lacks fun! That is what the Kokeshi matchstick company thought. So their designer opted to make boxes fun and offer a wide range of designs too.
Each box or book of matches is printed with a fun character whose head appears on top of the matchstick as well. You choose the box or book you like, and then you can enjoy the creative product.
Bags can be the last impression that your brand makes when you are a retail store. That is why there is a lot of money pumped into creating bags by stores. Sometimes they focus on colors, sometimes the logo, and sometimes they go a little more creative.
Like this YKM bag. When sitting, it looks like the jump rope is at rest, but when being carried looks like it is in use. Clever and on-brand for this retail store.
When you think of a six-pack, the last thing that probably comes to mind is a box full of carbs. But you can make bread more healthy and pack it with protein. That is what this product does; however, what really draws your attention to it is the packaging.
This may be one of those times when the packaging wasn’t so alluring and well done, and the product may never get the time of day from many of us. But the fact that the bread rolls form a six-pack will keep people taking a look at it for sure.
What’s the worst thing about getting a bag of pistachios? For a lot of people, it is where they throw their shells. But with this inventive design, they won’t have to worry about that at all. All they will have to do is crack the nut and then toss the shells in the box’s shell.

Getting Some Air
Okay, Nike is no stranger to unique design, but typically, those only happen with the shoes themselves. Though graphically nice, the packaging is pretty straightforward until they decide to switch things up a bit.

Check Out Those Chiclets
Because of the shape that the old gum Chiclets were formed in, many people have called teeth, Chiclets. So when Trident came out with a similarly shaped gum, it was pretty clear what the packaging needed to look like.
