And the Winner Is...

Congratulations to the finalists and winners of the 2008 Adobe Design Achievement Awards! This year the award for best student Packaging category went to Lih Shi Tsen’s Traditional Chinese Medicine Gift packaging. Design by Tseng-Chih Huang, Yu-Hsuan Chou, Han-Wen Hsieh, and Wei-Chen Shen from the Mingchi University of Technology in Taiwan.

Chinese Medicine packaging designed with traditional Chinese calligraphy and the symbol of the five elements, gold, wood, water, fire and earth. Combined with the unique hexegon shaped packaging this design caught my attention during the presentation. Great work!
