Green design for pizza box

Interesting design for a pizza box :

– the top cover of the GreenBox  rips off into four pieces to form four plates (thus reducing the use of recyclable plates);

– bottom part folds into a smaller box to become a container for remaining slices to be stored in the fridge

– the box 100% recyclable

Here‘s the video demonstration.

KANCHEV, Stefan Kirov — applied graphic artist, honored with the Bulgarian State title “National artist” in 1971. He was born on 06 August 1915, in Kalofer, Bulgaria and he studied mural painting in the National Art Academy (1940–1945).

His works are so simple and yet so explicit and communicative:

Logo design processes

A really nice idea to collect and put together a collection of design processes from different designers. You can find 30 of these design processes on Creative Nerds . You can also find useful tutorials, articles and freebies. I recommend it for your rss feeds. 😉

Enjoy it!
