3M – VOLUME DOWN PACKAGING
The task was to develop an original promotional packaging solution that immediately conveyed the product value of 3M’s SolarTM Earplugs – a product targeted at end users frequently requiring effective noise protection (such as musicians and festival-goers).
3M turned the purpose of the earplugs – to reduce noise – into an original package design. The container’s cap looks like the volume knob of a hi-fi system; when opening it to reach the earplugs, one seems to be turning down the volume.
