Packaging Design Day

A blank 1-Litre milk carton, slightly damaged, lying on its side, photographed against a black backdrop.

Some objects are just so commonplace that it becomes easy to forget how complex their design and production truly is.  The humble milk carton is one such item: something most of us have used successfully for years without much thought, but which excels at its intended task.

This empty, unprinted example (2002.7.1) was manufactured at the now-closed Tetra Pak facility that operated on Vandorf Sideroad starting in 1985.   On May 7th, we recognize packaging designs, and thank their designers for subtly making our lives cleaner, easier and tastier!
