Rice Creative To Host Packaging Design Competition
Collaboration with Japan Foundation connects young designers across Asia
Rice Creative are fronting a challenge. They want you to improve the packaging of the kinds of products that crowd our daily lives — from food and cosmetics, to stationary and sweets.
ASPaC, or the Asia Student Package Design Competition, launched by the Japan Foundation, aims to nurture design talent across the region while using creativity as a connector between different Asian countries. Cutting-edge design house, Rice Creative, has offered their support and their discerning eye as judges for Vietnam.
All you have to do is explore ways to make existing packaging better. And dream big by imagining what packaging could be like in the future (free from the practical constraints of materials and manufacturing costs).
In case you’re not already sold, there’s a cash prize of ¥200,000 and a chance to attend the Tokyo-hosted awards ceremony for the winners in December. The only condition is you need to be a recent graduate or currently enrolled in design school.
Any questions? No? Good. Then get started here. You have until the 20th August to get your entries in.
