A Beautiful Example
Pure white and deep blue characterize Model Kramp’s packaging for the new men’s fragrance ‘Alien Man’ by MUGLER. Just as the flacon with its geometric lines relies on the clear power of the monolith, the packaging design also embraces geometric rigor and complementary contrasts.
The partial gloss finish for the word mark ‘Alien’ and the matte white background support the visual appeal. Filigree embossing with hot foil emphasize the value. The material used for the extravagant packaging is Astropack 350 g/m2. The printing on the inside was done in 1 color, the outside was printed in 6 colors and then elaborately finished: stamping foil print silver, debossing, embossing, pistoled edges and coding.
