Packaging Design of Folding Carton Boxes for the Food/Confections Industry
Our client, Dolle's Candyland, has been an Ocean City boardwalk icon for over 100 years. When they asked us to design the packaging for their classic summertime treats, we knew it had to be monumental. Generations of Ocean City visitors have strolled along the boardwalk sharing bags of their salt water taffy. The taste of their confections is an integral part of the history and fabric of Ocean City.
Dolle's Candyland is such an Ocean City landmark, it's no wonder visitors buy boxes of their candy as souvenirs. This was the perfect opportunity for us to use our client's legacy to create packaging that includes the history and nostalgia of a summer boardwalk with each box of treats. The boxes themselves had to become the souvenirs.
Working with our client, we designed three boxes, each detailed with historic postcards which we enlarged and faded slightly, creating a soft sepia toned background for the bold logo and classic typography. Using sbs cardstock with an aqueous coating and four color printing, we designed two tuck top, auto-bottom boxes.
The packaging design for the saltwater taffy box is the highlight of the trio. It was designed to mimic Dolle's iconic taffy wrapper, with stars on the ends, thus creating an iconic souvenir package to match the confectioner's iconic brand.
