Student Alyssa Phillips did a complete packaging redesign of M&M candies as a school assignment. Changing the name simply to M's, her packaging features a resealable tear strip so that you don't have to eat all your candy in one sitting -- my thighs thank you Alyssa.

If the iPhone has shown us anything it is that design can go along way in creating a bond between consumer and product. However, it begs the question, how much could such a packaging redesign enhance our enjoyment of a simple hard shell chocolate candy? What we do know is that Alyssa Phillips has done a remarkable job. To view her portfolio click here.
