Form follows function is the box design rule of thumb. But you can have a little fun with it.
Such is the case with Aluminoes™, a collection of beautifully crafted aluminum dominoes. Their high quality construction paired with sharp colors, inlaid with crystals, and the ability to be custom engraved make Aluminoes™ a top-tier version of the classic game. This is a product that’s a perfect candidate for upscale box design. A twist on our Front Open box, this radical packaging features stylized windows that preview the product and riser for a sturdier fit. The overlapping lid secures into place with hidden magnetic tabs providing a luxurious enclosure.
The rectangular windows add a symmetry to the minimalist design. The box is a stunning black with hints of white in the form of the offset logo. This symmetry, coupled with the black-and-white theme, is reminiscent of more traditional dominoes, but the product itself is anything but traditional.
We love designing boxes to complement products. You don’t want packaging that steals the show entirely, nor would you want a product that is a diamond inside of a piece of coal. Aluminoes™ and their packaging represent a perfect middle ground between artistic design and functional storage. Keepsake packaging that becomes an instant memento, while retaining a sleek, modern look.
