Pune, India, 3 June 2021 – Elephant, a leading design agency, has won the coveted A’ Design Award, Silver in the Packaging Design category for their packaging for Himalaya Sheet Masks. The new product has been launched in markets across the globe including the Middle East, Southeast Asia as well as Europe. 

The A’ Design Award and Competition is an international award hosted out of Italy by The International Design Academy. The award recognizes stellar designers, innovators, and companies from different fields across diverse disciplines in a global setting. The grand jury comprises influential press members, established designers, leading academics, and prominent entrepreneurs worldwide. 

Elephant crafted a visual language and system based on ‘Zen Time’ which focused on creating an entire skincare routine that evokes fulfillment, tranquillity, and a truly calming experience. The design facilitates Himalaya to carry forward its brand legacy of natural wellness in a contemporary manner. The visual language developed by Elephant strikes a balance between youthful vibrancy and the romanticized world of natural ingredients.  

Sheet Mask is a new and ‘emerging’ category across different countries. For Himalaya’s range of Mask, we wanted a design that would appeal across age groups and attract Gen Z’s attention. This design has a perfect balance of Herbs, Fruits & Product Benefits.” conveys Himalaya Asia Pacific Team from Singapore.

Commenting on the win, Ashwini Deshpande, co-founder, and director of Elephant said, “It is wonderful to be recognized on a global platform yet again. Our design collaboration with Himalaya was great teamwork between our Singapore and India teams. I am looking forward to this design being a winner with audiences across the world as well.”

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia.is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
