Manufacture of extruded corn snacks
What's your vision?
We need a package design for our new product line corn snack with 6 different shapes and one flavor. The brand name is "SMART" (Might change the name) The design will be ONE, only the image and description of shape and flavor will have to change. The bags are:- - Cheese Ball - Cheddar Curls - Cheese Sticks - Cheese Sticks Hot - Cheese Ball Ketchup - Cheddar Curls Hot Size of unfolded pack is 275 mm wide and 210 mm height, it is hot sealed at the back, and after folding and sealing the front is 126 mm wide. Keep in mind there is a vertical sealing in the middle. Also there will be top and bottom sealing between packs (around 16mm) There will be a barcode and our company details in two languages (English and Arabic) - attached word file with the back side details to be mentioned on both sides of the back of the pack On the bottom of the back side need to plus a sign of keep the country tidy (to be typed in both languages beside the trash basket picture in small size) - attach as well a competitor pack found as a guide for the language and any other details might be of use. Attached find company logo "Ginger" which should be placed somewhere on the package in the back side (colors of logo can be changed if required base on the design)
We are operating in Bahrain market (middle East nest to Dubai UAE) most of the text will be both languages English and Arabic (Cyrillic). You may check back with me for any translations required I am expect to target mostly the kids and teenage customers

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their product packaging.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
AKN collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
The contest start well very slow where I can say dead contest where in the first 2 days I didn't receive any design
from designers messages I understood that all want the contest to be blind so they can submit their design without competitors to see and copy
I agree with them on this request but it was too late where only 1 day left to have the final designs to select from
What went wrong is that designers didn't understand well what required and they revert late to ask for clarification, but I say who asked first had the good chance to work and submit exactly or close to what is required
I recommend that 99D do work on the blind contest to secure designers efforts as well to encourage more designers to participate and submit their work enough time to customer to comment and amend or correct when required.... this will make the contest life for designers as well customer to interfere with designers more and work all as one team to have the best out of all and speed the process to finish
it is good chance for all to meet in 99D but it should also have more privacy for both customer and designers where this the role of 99D to work hard to implement it ... after the contest is over no problem to show all designers work along with winner design so other customers can have also idea about the work and get encouraged to participate
thanks for reading and how to see these comments took place in near future
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
