The Macau-based company Branco recently teamed up with designer Keo.W to create a mooncake packaging concept that is truly out of this world. A mooncake is a traditional Chinese cake that is primarily enjoyed during the Mid-Autumn Festival. This gift set helped to mark the occasion in a special way by turning the beloved treat into a work of art.

For last year's Mid-Autumn Festival, Branco enlisted the help of Keo.W to create a special gift set for its clients. The mooncake packing concept Keo.W came up with consisted of a discrete white box that opened up to reveal a realistic moon-shaped case. The case was illuminated by a smokeless and flameless LED candle that gave it a beautiful otherworldly glow. The set was dubbed 'A LUA,' which is Portuguese for the world 'moon.'

The beautiful mooncake packaging demonstrates how artistic elements can be used to elevate special food products, such as delicacies associated with important holidays.
