A very quick look at traditional Japanese packaging design. I was inspired after seeing a copy of Hideyuki Oka’s book How to Wrap 5 More Eggs: Traditional Japanese Packaging. Some of the items I saw in Oka’s book brought back memories of things my Japanese mother used to buy or that she received as gifts from faraway family and visiting friends.
There’s definitely much more to show and tell about Japanese packaging. And I promise to share more in an upcoming post.
