Brand trust and long-term customer loyalty are the pillars of a successful company. The packaging design plays a decisive role in the brand experience. Our design team at KURZ knows: Design doesn't just mean creating visual incentives at the POS. It also conveys credibility and acts as a brand ambassador between the customer and your product. Successful brand communication combines aesthetics with customer contact. At the same time, our designs meet the growing challenges of globalization, automation and sustainability. Our innovative and attractive product concepts are not just a snapshot. They reflect on the trends of today and tomorrow and offer you the opportunity for a long-lasting customer relationship.

View What's Next: boxes

Capture what’s moving the world. Visualize what’s shaping people’s outlook on life right now. That’s 'boxes'. Our translation of current trends into packaging design. Outside, sustainably timeless, versatile, reusable. Inside, four radically different designs – and yet everything fits together seamlessly. Packaging and explanation. Cause and effect. Sense and purpose. Our interpretation of an age in which the details have a lot in common. What? Unbox, touch, read.

This year we wanted an even more sustainable packaging concept. Our goal was to:

Reduce Material

Reduce Glue

Easy to Fold Flat and Recycle

#0 Outside Box


To save material we created the outside box to be used directly for mailing.
We added a simple white label with black print and TTR gold lettering on the ‘boxes’. We left an open area, where you can personally add the customer address.
We made 1,200 boxes this year and thanks to the TTR application we individualized each box by counting and showing the customer that this is a limited edition. The customer can see which s/he received e.g., 125th out of 1,200.

The Concept:

This is based on the well-known Matryoshka dolls from Russia: One piece fits inside another, larger one, to create a complete set of five nesting pieces. After opening the first box, the second one appears – a little smaller in size and ready to reveal the next.
Curiosity keeps you unpacking one box after the other, providing new inspiration for designers, not only regarding the four trends featured but in terms of the creative possibilities offered by hot stamping as well.
