House of Baratheon Wineskin
The objective of this assignment was to recreate the packaging of an existing product. I chose Coghlan’s Bota Bag. I redesigned the packaging to look like the straps of a medieval satchel. Also, I designed the packaging with the House of Baratheon in mind (a fictional family known for their ability to consume vast quantities of honey mead and wine).
The original packaging can be seen here: http://bit.ly/1psODOB
The Baratheon Bota Bag is great camping trip item. The Bota Bag is more or less a modern wineskin. The product is made with real leather, and is made in Spain, but the plastic parts detract from the bag’s attraction. When I thought about what could sell this item, I thought about where it came from, did research and designed accordingly.
