DVD Special Packaging Case Study
DVD Special Packaging for "Being Human"
We were kidding ourselves when we thought we could live among normal people. we... are monsters
I find the question 'What if...' to be an intriguing one: What if your neighbors were monsters? This is the premise for one of my favorite shows "Being Human" (the original British version in this case) and below are the designs for a DVD Special Packaging Case Study.
The packaging is designed so that as it is opened, it reveals more and more and the outside is modeled after a window in a front door. As you look through it you are not sure what you see.. is it a person or something else? Each of the three main characters as a side. As the outer box slides up then photos of the 3 main characters are revealed as who they truly are.
The top of the box has an image of a door knob and a mail slot (for fans of the show they will note that it features prominently in one episode).
Once the top of the box is opened then the show's logo is revealed and you would have access to the actual interior packaging which house the 3 DVDs.
The interior packaging design returns to the exterior box's blue window treatment for the DVD set with booklets that feature information on each character.
