A' Design Award and Competitions is pleased to announce that the packaging design work "Paths of Light" by Francisco Elias has been granted a Platinum A' Design Award in Packaging Design Category.

Winner Design: Paths of Light

Francisco Elias, one of the creators of the awarded project "Paths of Light" explains “The best way to hold the short animation "Paths of Light" by Zina Caramelo was to ensure that the DVD had a beautiful case to match. The packaging actually looks like it was plucked from the woods and moulded to form a CD. On the outside, various lines are visible, almost appearing as small trees growing up the side of the case. The wooden exterior also helps to give it an extremely naturalistic look. Paths of Light is an extreme update from the cases many saw for CDs in the 1990s, which usually consisted of basic plastic with a paper package to explain the contents inside.(text by J. D.
