Phillips Plastics have teamed up with the Robert Horne Group, ACID (Anti copying in design) and Fingerprint FO to launch this competition aimed at creatives and students of all ages who are resident in the UK. Using Priplak polypropylene you are asked to create a product, an innovative packaging solution or a promotional incentive. Part of the brief is to think about re-usability, durability, multi-usage and multi-functional.
The designs may be an innovative solution to an existing product or common everyday item, but will be judged on creativity, originality, and functionality, cost effectiveness and use of the material.
There will be three categories: My Plastic ‘Packaging’ Idea, My Plastic ‘Product’ Idea and My Plastic ‘Incentive/Promotional’ Idea. First prize for each category is £500 cash and the overall winner will receive an additional £500. Shortlisted finalists will get showcased at an exhibition in May in front of potential clients. In addition, the organisers will be scanning all entries looking for potential opportunities for products or incentives to be developed to market on a royalty arrangement basis.
To enter you can download the entry form here and entries must be submitted by 22 January 2011.
The ‘My Plastic Idea Design Competition 2011′ event is being organised by Phillips Plastics Ltd in association with
The creative’s have been at it again! No sooner had the snow fallen before the design team have fashioned a handy ice scraper and this rather nifty snow shovel out of a single sheet of ‘Tuff’ Polypropylene.
The material is called ‘Tuff’ and is used for the Phillips Plastics Tuff file see video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L-7RcobFkug.
It is cut out of a single flat sheet of 2.5 mm think made of 88% expanded recycled polypropylene with a virgin layer of polypropylene coating which can be printed on with your company logos or colours. No gluing or fixing is required the nifty Snow shovel is light, easy to use and can be stored flat. Another ingenious solution thanks to Phillips Plastics and Polypropylene!
