Meet Ian Montgomery & Marisa Sanchez-Dunning, founders of Guacamole Airplane, a design studio that believes in a greener future for packaging.
We’re a sustainable design studio. Half of the things that we make are structural packaging design projects, and the other half are experiments with different materials.
What role do senses play in packaging?
It’s amazing how much work goes into the design of packaging. You’re designing something that’s visual, designed to appeal to the eye. It’s haptic, designed to appeal to the sense of touch. You’re interacting with it, but it’s also a freestanding sculpture. It's like such a fun challenge, both two dimensionally and three-dimensionally.
