The winners of the International Design Packaging Awards were announced at last week HBA event in New York, and it was kids' toothpaste packaging that made it big.
The Grand Winner and category leader for Personal Care Mass was Theodent Kids by Theodent – a toothpaste that has been turning heads because of it’s luxury-look, gold capped tube, with sleek dispensing mechanism.
But that’s not the only reason why this new product launch has been turning heads, it’s also a chocolate-flavored toothpaste, which may be a way of encouraging even the most teeth-cleaning shy of children to get brushing morning and night.
This year the jury included a selection of packaging and beauty professionals from both the industry and media, and judged the entries accordingon originality, design concept, creative use of new materials, components and decorating processes, technical competency and effective brand messaging.
The prizes were given out by Trae Bodge, senior lifestyle editor of The Real Deal, and were given out during a ceremony at the end of the second day of the three day HBA event, and all the competition entries were on display in an allocated area on the showfloor.
