Pack-Age has collaborated with big and small companies from various industries. The packaging challenges can be strategic, tactical, or operational. For each project, a team of 4-5 students are formed, carefully selected from different backgrounds. The student teams work with the challenge, learn about packaging from many perspectives, and develop concepts and prototypes that answer the brief. Feedback is collected from a number of perspectives during the course, and is used to develop the concept further in iterative loops. Over the years, Pack-Age has formed partnerships with industrial sponsors that help supply materials or produce high quality prints for the prototypes.
New project proposals and contracts are prepared during the spring and summer, but teaching and design work takes place in the autumn, from September to December at Aalto University.
Cooperation makes it possible to offer more comprehensive approach to teaching and learning packaging design. Pack-Age is all about collective intelligence. If you are interested in collaborating, please do not hesitate to contact us.
