1. Jakub Klouzek, Fake cake

Czech Technical University, Prague, Faculty of Architecture, Czech Republic

1. místo  Jakub Klouzek  Fake cake  České vysoké učení technické v Praze, Fakulta architektury, Česká republika

A playful object – a cake is created by the simple application of a match. Matches are contained in package with well-designed graphics. The cake becomes a kind of ‚happening‘ birthday present. The matches placed as candles on the cake can be placed in any position on the lid of the package or just show the age of the birthday person. This work corresponds the most with the competition topic - Happy Birthday. It uses natural materials to supoprt simplicity and clarity.

 

2. Richard Janešík, HAPPY BIRTHDAY from Slovakia

Technical University of Košice, Faculty of Arts, Slovakia

2. místo  Richard Janešík  HAPPY BIRTHDAY from Slovakia  Technická univerzita v Košiciach, Dizajn, Slovensko

This package is perfectly constructed and has the additional function of changing into playing cards after use. The white print on blue cardboard refers to blueprints and the use of folklore graphics and colours supports the purpose of the product and the product itself. Notice the playful element creating a bridge between folk patterns and QR codes.

 

3. Matěj Coufal a Eduard Herrmann, Birthday Candle Package

Academy of Arts, Architecture & Design, Prague, Czech republic

3. místo  Matěj Coufal a Eduard Herrmann  Obal pro narozeninové svíčky  Vysoká škola uměleckoprůmyslová v Praze, Česká republika

The package is attractive mainly thanks to its simplicity, which is the antithesis of traditional, superficial and over-colourful birthday objects. There is a clear emphasis on minimalist graphic design, where the printing of a candle image is transferred to the packaging itself. The designer‘s intention was to create a package where each candle is unique, just like every year which we celebrate, and a candle symbolizes this.

 

Model Obaly Prize

Michal Šafář, PRESETn

Cena společnosti Model Obaly, a. s.  Michal Šafář  PRESETn

You can give this sheet of paper as a graphic poster of geometric structures and bending lines or you can create your own object from it or you can wrap a gift in it. This paper product is of a high professional level. Besides the product professionalism, the idea of the creative involvement of the birthday person is interesting, and this moment becomes the finisher of the three-dimensional paper object.

 

CZECHDESIGN Prize

Tomáš Chludil, Captain‘s Treasure

Academy of Arts, Architecture & Design, Prague, Czech Republic

Cena CZECHDESIGN  Tomáš Chludil  Kapitánův poklad  Vysoká škola uměleckoprůmyslová v Praze, Česká republika

This paper package is also a map that tells the birthday person where he will find his present. Everyone has a hidden desire for adventure and alcohol is also a common birthday gift. When these two elements are combined, receiving a gift becomes an adventure game. The package has excellent graphics and form, the overall idea is playful and that belongs to the Happy Birthday topic. Thanks to this, the package gained our fondness from the first time we saw it.

 

High school students

 

1. Jan Perháč, Matterhorn

Secondary School of Applied Arts, Musical Instruments and Furniture, Hradec Králové, Czech Republic

1. místo  Jan Perháč  Matterhorn  Střední uměleckoprůmyslová škola hudebních nástrojů a nábytku, Česká republika

A package designed for a mountain climber which celebrates the anniversary of the Matterhorn ascent and corresponds to the Happy Birthday topic. The successful stylisation of a rock formation perfectly captures the tension between the ergonomic shape of the product and the geometric shape of the package. The graphics support the readability of the mountain range theme.

 

2. Jan Bendák, Earth Day pills

Secondary School of Applied Arts, Musical Instruments and Furniture, Hradec Králové, Czech Republic

2. místo  Jan Bendák  Earth Day pills  Střední uměleckoprůmyslová škola hudebních nástrojů a nábytku, Česká republika

The amorphous shape corresponds exactly to the function, the recycled material made via a special paper-making technology which also corresponds to the day that the package celebrates. The package captures the cycle of the material that is parallel to the cycle of nature. The package should serve as a promotional item that would be handed out on April 22 – Earth Day. The stage is set for you to grow your own tree.

 

3. Michaela Kachtíková, Nut

Secondary School of Art, Ostrava, Czech Republic

3. místo  Michaela Kachtíková  Voříšek  Střední umělecká škola Ostrava příspěvková organizace, Česká republika

This package is attractive mainly for its conceptually conceived graphics, which follow the structure of a nutshell. Cutting through a nut creates interesting geometric patterns of repetition and mirroring. These shapes serve as a basis for a functional package based on origami - without using adhesive, it is structurally simple.

 

Jury Chairman Prize

Nikola Marková, Svijany

Secondary School of Applied Arts, Ústí nad Orlicí, Czech Republic

Cena předsedy poroty  Nikola Marková  Svijany  Střední škola uměleckoprůmyslová Ústí nad Orlicí, Česká republika
