48 Rustic Cardboard Packaging Designs

From Cardboard-Framed Branding to Reusable Package Planters

— November 7, 2013 — Eco
These rustic cardboard packaging designs are here to showcase how creative branding techniques can sincerely make a difference when it comes to standing out amongst other more similar products.

With the amount of brands and retailers constantly competing against each other to sell their goods and services, sometimes a good product is just not quite enough to capture the attention of potential consumers. That's why opting to brand and package a product in a rustic or eco-friendly way using cardboard is a fantastically inventive approach to making that product stand out amongst the other more ordinary designs. From cardboard egg cartons to eco-friendly beer carriers and minimalist milk packaging, these cardboard designs are demonstrating that being environmentally conscious about your branding doesn't necessarily have to mean having a boring or mundane design.
