Open Skies Trading Co. Eppack Bags
Product Design, Packaging Design, Logo Design
When life hands you materials, you get creative. In this case, it was two retired billboards and a couple hundred feet of old static climbing rope.
Because billboards are made from a laminated vinyl material that's designed to withstand extreme weather, that makes them a perfect material for semi-waterproof products. Since the Open Skies Trading Co. mission is to reduce, re-use and recycle a way to viable products for the outdoor industry, we sat down and worked on a method of sewing and sealing the vinyl to itself to form a semi-dry bag perfect for rainy days and other light-duty jobs. The net result is a new product called Eppack bags (pronounced epp-pack) that can come in either black by facing out the backside of the billboard, or a one-of-a-kind collage effect by using the front of the billboard. I then set about developing packaging for our new product, and our hope is to be sale-ready by mid 2021.
