At the heart of the 'Precious Pastries' design is the symbol of the crane, a creature revered in Chinese Taoist culture for its association with health and longevity. The design's unique properties lie in its clever use of form and function. The outer box and paper handle come together to form the shape of a crane, creating an aesthetically pleasing and environmentally friendly packaging solution.
When the box is opened, the top forms a complete picture, while the combination of different sides of the four packages forms another complete picture. This visual integration of brand culture and Guochao oriental aesthetics results in a unique and beautiful experience for the consumer.
The 'Precious Pastries' packaging is more than just a container for the Bazhen Cake, a special pastry with eight kinds of precious Chinese ingredients. It is a reflection of the brand's commitment to tradition and quality, and its desire to offer consumers a product that is both healthy and enjoyable.
The design's success is evident in its recognition at the prestigious A' Packaging Design Award in 2023, where it was awarded Silver. The award is given to designs that demonstrate outstanding expertise and innovation, and that evoke positive feelings, amazement, and wonder. Hui Qiong Yang's 'Precious Pastries' certainly fits the bill.
The 'Precious Pastries' packaging design is a powerful example of how design can enhance a product's appeal and reinforce a brand's identity. It is a testament to Hui Qiong Yang's creativity and understanding of the interplay between form and function, tradition and innovation, and aesthetics and practicality.
