ABOUT THE BEST OF SHOW, EDITOR'S CHOICE, & SUSTAINABLE PACKAGING AWARD WINNERS
BEST OF SHOW
BANDiful by Jiawei Feng & Yu Ping Chuang
For the first time in The Dieline Package Design Awards history, an innovative student project was the highest rated project among the judges, and was named Best of Show. Vivi Feng & Yu-Ping Chuang created an innovative solution to a common problem: the challenge of using a single hand to apply a bandage.
Applying a bandage using a single hand can be challenging, especially when both of your hands are injured. BANDiful solves this problem by applying a special structure to avoid extra steps in unwrapping bandages. Not only does BANDiful offer a functional benefit, but also enables a new personal experience of using a bandage. Incorporated with a hanger on the top of the package, the consumer can hang BANDiful on the wall near his/her desk. With bright patterns, bandages are no longer invisible but beautiful. Normally people use bandages only for small wounds, but by offering a convenient user experience, a consumer could also feel emotionally comforted as well.
