Scotties Introduces Umbra Designer Series

packaging design with umbra designer series for scotties

This is a first! I never imagined that a box of facial tissues would fit into the scope on my blog until I saw the print design on those boxes. It is another proof that great packaging can win customers.

It is about time that facial tissue maker acknowledged that a large number of people lives in modern home. I gave up long time ago on finding acceptable prints on facial tissue boxes. But it bothers me every time my eyes meet a box in my home.

Even though the colors do not complement my home decor, I will be looking for the Umbra designer series boxes in stores. I wish they were as cool as the patterns available for the Flip Mino HD. But it is first step in the right direction. Toronto-based designer Annie Chou created these illustrations.

This is a limited edition that Scotties did to appeal to the style-savvy people. I encourage you to get those since if they sell well it may convince Scotties and Kleenex to add good modern prints on a continuous basis.
