Concept Redesign Of McDonald's Packaging Makes Take-Outs More Convenient
By Thia Shi Min, 29 Aug 2013
Based in London, one of Robert Bye’s graduate student projects has got him re-thinking the Big Mac packaging of McDonald’s.
Bye examined McDonald’s current packaging and found that taking out was a hassle as the drink would condense in a paper bag—the fact that the current packaging made up 15% of the weight carried was also a big no-no.
With this in mind, the designer sought to create a renewable, lightweight packaging which allowed the user to carry all components of a Big Mac meal in one.
The designer’s improved packaging works with the basic shape of the box which contains a Big Mac, but has an extended paper cup holder attached to it.
The top half of the box also makes good use of space and contains the fries, with a flap for easy access.
With this new solution, it isn’t even necessary to put all three components together in a brown bag as it’s easier to carry all of it with one hand.
Scroll down to see how he came up with this ingenious idea.
