JohnsByrne Company credits its creative team for bringing home top honors in a recent national competition.

We always try to surpass expectations, both for our customers and the end user.

A package produced by a Chicago-area company is continuing to make waves long after its debut. Designed and manufactured by JohnsByrne Company, the package was recently awarded the top prize at the 70th annual North American Paperboard Packaging Competition.

Winner of both the Innovation category and Package of the Year in the prestigious competition, the winning package shows JohnsByrne Company's talent for eye-catching innovation. Designed as a smartphone launch kit, this transforming package goes from shipping container to retail countertop display in one smooth motion, turning itself from a plain rectangular box into a stand that houses both a display phone and a live device.

Used to promote the launch of the phone in wireless retail stores, this package is the product of JohnsByrne Company's consistent focus on developing never-before-seen structural design concepts. "We always try to surpass expectations, both for our customers and the end user," said Corey Gustafson, President and CEO of JohnsByrne Company. "We're uniquely equipped to meet that goal, and to create packages like this one that test the boundaries of what packaging can do."

Gustafson refers to the company's robust capabilities, made possible by a team that pushes to find innovation opportunities along every step of the package manufacturing process.

"Functionality and artistry can and should go hand in hand in this industry, and every package we create is a culmination of different ideas all working together," he said. "We're proud to make that happen here, because it allows us to make our clients more profitable, more successful and more likely to stand out in a cluttered market space."
