Zen & the Design Technology of Product Packaging in Japan

Packaging design in Japan is justifiably renowned for its sense of class, drama, and subtlety while at the same time embracing a seemingly endless parade of playful cartoon characters aimed at selling everything from lollies to shampoo.

However, the Zen of Japanese packaging lies not in the immaculately gravure-printed graphic design but deeper, behind the image in the shape, material and construction.

This highly illustrated graphic report features more than 130 of Japan's most innovative packaging formats.

  • Appreciate the Form: With compliance to the forefront, 'form follows function' is evident in ALL 130 package solutions.

  • Universal Design (UD) Applications: UD 'accessibility' solutions for the aged, visually impared and young have become part of the Japanese design process, often subtle features make the package more accessible to additional market segments.
