Creativity and originality impress - Innovation Prize Corrugated Board for Staedtler’s Galaxy display

The incredibly successful consumer promotion item has now received a national award. The corrugated board innovation prize, which is organised every two years by the Verband der Wellpappen-Industrie e.V.

Flexible gift packaging for Easter, Mother's Day and so many other occasions

This year, the Panther subsidiary in Coswig came up with a very special packaging for ideal Easter presents. A nest in the form of an Easter egg, which can be filled with eggnog bottles, for example.

A basic folding box was designed for an outer packaging corresponding to Easter under the premise that this concept could also be converted for other holidays, such as Valentine's Day and the annual Mother's Day in May. This represented an additional component for the developers, as both an Easter egg and a heart shape were to be created. In addition, safe transport of the goods must be ensured, for which a compartment is provided.

These are used to define targets, examine processes and to continuously adapt to the latest developments. Consequently, an overall solution is developed and not just individual solution modules, in order to align our daily actions with it.
