Inspiration from Packaging

I often browse a handful of CSS galleries for continuous inspiration but it's good to draw inspiration from a host of other sources, one of those being packaging.

Creative packaging shows a good reflection on the brand it represents. My first real appreciation of packaging was opening my first Apple product, which was an iPod Touch. The perfectly crafted box and minimalism is reflected throughout the Apple brand, including their website. Some even go as far as to film themselves unboxing Apple products as it is such an enjoyable experience. <!--more-->

Drawing inspiration from packaging design can inspire new ideas and different approaches for your next project. Check out these great examples.
