I'm loving this adorable Tightrope Tea design by Jondelle Watkins. The packaging depicts an elephant balancing on a tightrope; in his tusk, the elephant carries a graphic representation of the tea's flavor. The teabags are attached and folded like an accordion; a thin strip akin to a tightrope keeps the teabags bound.
The Tightrope Tea packaging even contains a fun graphic on the back that ties the circus themes together.
Implications - Consumers are looking for designs that offer some sort of entertainment. Products that feature an element of whimsy are appealing to those with fast-paced lifestyles. In order to grow its appeal, a company could focus on creating more items with this fun aspect in mind.
