This process includes production techniques, materials, logistics and of course the human as its final user. His design unites the intersections of social, technical and ecological issues, therefore the packaging design was always a logic part of his product development.

    Samuel Bratko

    Nová Baňa, Slovakia

    Student of industrial design, mainly focused on transport. His design style is characterized by elegance, simplicity, minimalism and a touch of sporty appearance.

     

    From an early age, he was fascinated by the curves of cars, modern architecture, and his biggest dream was to have a car company with its own car design. Today, cars have been replaced by mountain bikes - his biggest hobby, and he is on his way to fulfill his childhood dream by building a company focused on upgrades and design customizations of bikes.

     

    However, his vision does not end with transport, cars and bicycles. He thinks that design is a way to bring good looks, creativity, style, timelessness, functionality and originality to the world. And it doesn't matter if it's huge buildings, cars, a table vase or a wine bottle packagingr. The mission is clear: to make the world admirable.

    Rolf Weilenmann

    Sulz, Switzerland

    I live with my wife and our two children in Sulz. A small village near Winterthur in Switzerland. Currently i am employed as a packaging designer at Model AG.

     

    My career began with an apprenticeship as a packaging technologist. I spent most of my time learning how to produce packaging. After six years of working at a production machine, I was given the opportunity to switch to the design department. That was almost 18 years ago. Since then i have been designing packaging made of solid and corrugated cardboard for a wide variety of consumer goods and well-known brands such as Lindt, Nespresso, Wrigley's, Mars and many more.

     

    My work is exclusively related to the structural design and the technical aspects of the packaging. therefore, I always try to combine the customer's demands for the shape of the packaging with the production needs and the technical requirements regarding the supply chain in the simplest way possible.
