Origami boxes as product package designs?

Postby Gerardo » February 28th, 2017, 9:30 pm

Hi.

I don't know if there are people here that know a couple of things about package design. If so, can you help me with the following questions?

Iv'e noticed that most product box designs inspired by origami aren't strictly origami. Is that correct? Do most origami-inspired product box designs include cuts and/or glue? If so, why is that? Why is that prefered over creating a real origami box model as a product box design?

Here's an example of what I'm talking about: http://www.packagingoftheworld.com/2012 ... d-box.html

To me the answer is obvious, it is done so to cut (pun intended) on production costs.

Also its generally less paper/cardboard efficient.

Common box used for packaging should be generally easy-to-make, compared to an origami box that needs time for the folding process - which leads to cuts and glues to be used for the time save.
Of course packing with only origami technique is sometimes useful ; but as it's said above, not strong enough to withstand..
