Product Redesign Research
My current project is to redesign the Arm & Hammer Baking Soda packaging. I want to help the design be more modern looking, as well as find a way for the package to be more user-friendly, especially to those who cook.
My main progress on this project this week was research. I did a lot of additional research about different types of bottles and packages I could do. I found a lot of cool redesigns or additional brands of Baking Soda with unique ideas. You can find my examples on my Pinterest board here. I really liked the Domeca packaging – especially the different lid options.
I think this is a start to a better design – although I wish the hole was bigger – there is no way I could fit a Tablespoon in that opening. The other packaging I liked was found on Behance. I really like the lasercut label, and the natural feel it has. I think it was very well done.
The downside to these products, are they are not orange. One thing I want to keep clear is the difference between Baking Soda and Baking Powder. To do that, I am going to keep the orange color.
