Gaea | 2018
Gaea is a storage and transport system aimed at reducing the physical waste involved in the horticulture process. Current solutions package seeds separately from the planter that they will ultimately grow inside of; Gaea simplifies this two step process by packaging and selling plant seeds within a simple, eye-catching planter. The planter itself compliments the organic plants they contain, and are stylized in a minimal yet eye-catching aesthetic. This project was an exercise in working with foam modeling for prototyping, using CAD tools to create and render mathematically accurate models, and explore how packaging design can communicate a brand’s ideals while remaining conscious of material usage.
