It has been announced that 10 students studying BA (Hons) Product Design at Ravensbourne have won at this year's annual Starpack packaging competition.
The Starpack Schools and Student Awards encourage young people to challenge conventional thinking and break the rules with unconventional creativity. With more than 360 entries, this year’s competition had no shortage of excellent contenders. The judges awarded 23 highly commended, 27 bronze, 35 silver and 34 gold stars across the competitions along with Best in Show and Best Portfolio.
Some of the briefs set by Starpack included a miniature whiskey bottle for ‘on the go convenience’, a luxury fragrance pack, sustainable solutions with corrugated cardboard and packaging to help reduce consumer food waste.
This year Ravensbourne students rose to the occasion in the production and creativity of their designs. From unique fragrance packaging, home bubble tea kits and a new way to store your sauces in take-out containers, this year’s class managed to walk away with 10 awards for their outside of the frame thinking.
Nadine Bennett, Co-course leader commented, ‘The Starpack competition briefs offer students a range of ways to approach a structural packaging design; some briefs focus on sustainability and others on manufacturing techniques and consumer trends. We are very proud of how our students have responded to the challenges set this year and are pleased to see how many awards have been won in this increasingly popular international competition.’
Previously our students have been recognised for their creative responses to the Starpack Awards briefs such as in 2019 when Francesca Kirstnen received Gold for her work on Grey Goose Vodka on Ice design, Szymon Koprowski picked up silver for ‘Ramen Garden’ and Abiel Tseggay received a highly commended for a Vegan Gnocchi Ready Made Meal, just to name a few.
We would like to pass on our congratulations to all of the winners!
