Yarn Packaging The purpose of this packaging is to be a dual-purpose container that a knitting store would be distributing. This product would not be for a specific brand of yarn, but would hold any type of yarn that has been purchased, than wound in the store. Rather than dispersing the yarn in a bag it would be placed in this box and then the knitter would use the box as a yarn dispenser while working on their project. Another note for functionality is that I didn’t want the box to have any glued edges to cut costs for the shop, so it would just be a scored, die-cut, and folded up as needed. I wanted this project to embody and attract the emerging younger generation of knitters and have more of an alternative style. So I decided to go with a punk, skull and crossed bone, anchor, tattoo sort of style for the design of the box. The store I am envisioning would be in a major metro close to college/young professional aged people. For my example I choose Portland because it is known for its knitting community, and support for DIY and the arts.
