Sakura of America Permapaque Marker Packaging Design
Sakura of America, manufacturer of Micron and Gellyroll pens as well as a plethora of other art projects was rebranding their Permapaque marker line, which included new packaging.
Landing an international client, who's products I've used for years, was a surreal experience. The client's goal was to attract designers, crafters, and fine artists to purchase their new line, and of course, to stand out from the competition on store shelves.
I was inspired by the Memphis design movement of the 1980s when creating the bold, geometric print used in the background and full-color accent bars. The color palette was inspired by the primary colors in the Permapaque line.
