Beautiful package design from Georgia based graphic designer Joel Nilsen. For an academic project it is a beauty, check out a bit about the project below with a few more images below that. Make sure you scroll to the bottom for the portfolio links.

"In the realms of both fine dining and home cooking there is an increasing desire to return to more traditional, time consuming, and fresh preparations for food. I have designed sustainable packaging for a fresh herb garden starter kit. The kit will include, seed germinating pads, potting soil, organic fertilizer, herb snips, a fresh herb storage flask, identifying markers, and a growing care / recipe booklet. There is minimal wasted packaging. The boxes are made from screen printed wood and function as planters when they are unpacked. The shredded stuffing is biodegradable and can be mixed with the soil for growing herbs. Also, the cover for the seeded pods is perforated and can be broken down into markers for each potted herb."
