Milko Packaging is Inspired by the Body of its Bountiful Bovine Source

There are several physical features concerning Milko packaging that set it apart from every other dairy product on the grocery store shelf. The shape and the material that form the unusual beverage receptacles offer advantages that the conventional carton and jug cannot boast.

The most obvious defining characteristic of the Alfonso Sotelo design is the teat-shaped feet which support the cylindrical containers. They afford a bizarre sort base for the beverage bottles but the concept is both practical and aesthetically clever. The underside is otherwise rounded and unable to stand steadily, and the marrying of these elements produces a formal reference to a cow's milk-emitting udder.

You have probably noticed that Milko packaging is also oddly a collection of aluminum canisters. Embellished with playful colors and a clean label, these drink cans make it easier to consume milk on the go.
