Detmold takes two top gongs

Australian packaging printer Detmold has won two national awards for packaging design and printing on the back of its gold win at the National Print Awards.

The company has won the 2015 Good Design Award for creating Australia’s first ovenable board carton, designed to hold pre-cooked meals on Qantas flights which are then baked on board.

The box was designed to reduce the packaging of in-flight meals, enhance portion sizes and create efficiency in serving guests.

It was created by Detmold’s Young Australian Designer of the Year 2014 Max Hughes and Detmold LaunchPad group product manager Andrew Good.

LaunchPad is the Detmold Group’s centre for research and development, concept creation and rapid protoyping, with studios both in Australia and China.

Detmold also won the overall Sustainable Design Award (KPI 1) in 2015 from the Australian Packaging Covenant.

The award recognises the outstanding performer amongst brand owners and packaging manufacturers in designing packaging that achieves significant sustainability improvements.

Detmold’s National Print Award entry ‘Chandler’s Pet Litter bag’ won a gold medal in the wide format, flexible substrate category and a bronze in the packaging category.

The company says the high quality print was achieved on the technically challenging brown kraft material. It also won bronze for another entry in flexible substrate wide format.
