Axiom’s Butter gram Design was awarded Gold in the 2017 in the Food Packaging Category by the jury of European Product Design.
Axiom designed and developed a distinctive butter packaging that’s targeted at today’s health-conscious millennial population. The design addresses some of the issues of using butter in conventional packaging, while at the same time conveys a strong message on health. The concept also delivers a unique and rich consumer experience.
The form and graphics of the packaging, conveys the idea of health consciousness while experimenting with mundane concepts to give out a quirky and playful feel to the product. The theme is centred around a measuring weight and indicates the health-factor of the product. The product was termed ‘Butter gram’ to emphasise the concept. A detailed study and research was done on the butter usage process was, during which a number of pain points were observed. The design elements focuses mainly on storage, re-storage and application.
Butter gram is a hypothetical brand that produces low-fat butter. The name is derived from the idea of designing the package as a measuring weight. The idea behind the logo was to give a soft and smooth touch to the brand, so that the heavy and rigid feel of the packaging doesn’t take away the delicate feel of butter.
