Having seen some of the entries and researching packaging further, what appeals to us in a more minimalist packaging design. I have uploaded various designs, that while are not necessarily part of our industry, catch our eye design wise. We especially like like the multi coloured abstract coral seekers logo and feel something similar could work on a white background as a focal point.
Our core product is called a 'Frag plug' and can be seen here: http://shop.reefculture.co.uk/produ…rag-plugs/
Here is a link to some tutorials we have done in a magazine. They may give you some ideas. http://reefculture.co.uk/tutorials/
More retail stores and wholesale customers are starting to stock these frag plugs and we are looking to offer improved packaging. The idea is to use standup pouches that the customer can either stand or hang on shelves. This is basically what the pouch will look like. http://thriveaquatics.com/plugs/plugs-small.html
This is the important part. We DO NOT want our company name on the packaging. I know this sounds counter intuitive, but our customers want to sell these products without the reference to our company. They essentially want them sold as their own in house product, hence the 'neutral branding'
We do not have any definitive ideas - but have found that various tones of blue combine with white have a nice 'ocean feel' to it. However, feel free to use any colours. The pouch colour will be white, but you can use any colour background as it will be printed on
The back of the packaging will have some general instructions as well as a bar code on.
In the bottom right on the front we would like an area where we can add quantities or variations of size.
