Here’s a great bit from the designer of the Nooka Watch with some choice thoughts about packaging, waste, and product processes.
His work strives to incorporate minimalism along with reuse or recycling. Additionally he brings up a great point about how products used to be simply tied to their location or have a little price tag hanging from them only, like when you visit an antique shop, or go to a yard sale. That’s as much info as may truly be needed. How little can you use to convey use, cost, and other issues when bringing items to market?
Do take a look a PSFK they have a great design blog with lots of great new posts daily.
