This visually appealing packaging for brushes made of recycled cardboard is an alternative to solutions that have been common on the market until now. The challenge was to develop packaging that is sustainable and offers added value. After removing the brush, the packaging can be pushed together to form a small tray which, with appropriate cut-outs, can be used to wipe off excess paint to prevent it from dripping. It can also be filled with small quantities of paint. The size of the packaging offers additional space for graphic design elements. The jury was impressed by the added value through its secondary use and the matching attractive design.
