The goal of the packaging for the Xbox Adaptive Controller was to create an empowering unboxing experience for anyone who would be gaming with the controller. The designers worked directly with gamers who have limited mobility to understand how they could make the unboxing experience as frictionless as possible. They strove to make the opening experience for both the retail box and the online delivery box as painless as possible, so if a gamer ordered from Microsoft.com, they would have a great experience right from their doorstep.

This packaging design expresses the characteristics of the Note9 in the simplest and most intuitive way. The most representative identity of Note9 is the Pen. To emphasize that, the Pen is expressed in a bold but refined graphic on the front of the package in such way that the Note’s design can be seen at a glance. The compact size of the package ensures there is no wasted space. The designers prioritized paper as the main material for the interior and strove to stay away from excessive packaging or meaningless decoration to make the design minimal while also considering the environment.

The Drinkworks™ Home Bar makes cocktails, beers, ciders and sangrias at the touch of a button, chilled to the perfect temperature. The packaging was designed with the consumer in mind. The designers studied the entire consumer journey, from shopping at retail to the transport home, the un-boxing experience and recycling, in order to remove all pain points. Lifting and carrying can be accomplished via a top handle or two side handles. Unboxing is achieved by releasing two side-locks and simply lifting the top of the box off—no awkward lifting required.
