The TricorBraun winners

Instant Knockout is a dramatic package––a clear plastic bottle molded in the shape of a clenched fist, designed to show off the bright red capsules within while projecting the “knockout fat” theme of this weight loss supplement. It was intended to be eye-catching and designed specifically to appeal to the brand owner’s target demographic: younger men who are already working out but who want help losing that last few pounds of fat.

The 3M™Patch Plus Primer 4-in-1 package designed by TricorBraun features a unique tube that not only contains 3M’s combined patching plaster and paint primer product, but also features a flat solid end that serves as a putty knife and includes a sanding pad on its closure. The resulting inclusive package provides both products and tools for quick household repairs.
