Student Spotlight: Redesigning LED Packaging
by Tiffanie Pfrang on 05/19/2011 | 2 Minute Read
Redesigning LED Packaging is Bryant Lee's Senior Thesis at the School of Art & Design at the University of Michigan. The project focuses on thinking about the box, out side of the box, and inside of the box.
"The purpose of my project is to bring awareness to socially responsible LED packaging. Current packaging does not maximize sustainable materials or construction, while also failing to clearly convey information. To solve these shortcomings, this packaging uses only post-consumer recycled paper, promotes recycling old bulbs, and supplies the consumer with updated information through modern graphic design."
Bryant also focused on the supporting structure of the design as well as the exterior structure. Many prototype were created using Adobe Illustrator to create the template and the university's laser cutter to build the structure he needed. Resulting in a octagonal collapsing structure you see here.
