Redefining the Golden Arches

Product Innovation, package design

McDonald’s in Japan has created a trio of luxury burgers in the ‘Quarter Pounder Jewelry’ series. Each of the burgers cost $10 that is, without making it a meal. Pineapple, bacon, Monterey jack cheese, black truffle sauce, chorizo and avocado are some of the quality ingredients that are used to create these luxury burgers.

However, McDonald’s not only upgraded their food, they also upgraded their packaging. The fast food giant swapped their regular paper bag for a minimalist, white-glossy bag. On the front are the golden arches that are made of gold leaf to add to the indulgence of the experience.

In addition, each burger is wrapped in gold foil with a gold-colored paper sleeve and placed in a glossy white paper box that is reminiscent of a luxury-watch-box.

A Cool Way to Drink Hot Tea

Product Innovation
Teapots may be a thing of the past with this sleek, new invention.

As opposed to old-fashion teapots, the “Quattro” which was designed by Snezana Jeremic, allows the person to pour the tea with a simple tip.

This device also can be inverted and used as a handle which makes it portable.

This is Not Your Average Lunchbox

Innovators & Creators, Product Innovation
The Bento is a single-portion takeout or homemade meal that is very common in Japanese cuisine. Traditionally, it is a box-shaped container that is filled with rice, fish or meat, with pickled or cooked vegetables.

There are different types of Bento Boxes that are elaborately and creatively arranged. The first style is the “kyaraben”, which are usually decorated to look like popular characters from Japanese cartoons, comic books or video games.

Another type of type of Bento Box is the “oekakiben”” which means the “picture bento”. This style is decorated to look like people, animals, buildings, etc.

The Mighty BNTO

Product Innovation

Allow me to pause, while we all take a moment to ask ourselves, ‘why didn’t I think of that?’

Mason jars are not on every store shelf, but pinned, liked and loved all over the internet; so, what better time than now to market a liquid compartment for beneath the lid.

Cuppow even outdid their simply ingenious design of BNTO by filming a very cool series of in use footage to sell it. Kudos, Cuppow!
