While LED light bulbs help save energy and are most certainly a greener choice than incandescents, the packaging of these more eco-friendly light bulbs leaves much to be desired. Using Philips LED bulbs [1] as an example, student designer Bryant Yee created a new system of packaging [2] that aims to bring awareness to socially responsible boxes for LEDs. Current packaging does not maximize sustainable materials or construction, and also fails to clearly convey information. Yee’s packaging design uses only post-consumer recycled paper, promotes recycling old bulbs, and supplies the consumer with updated information through modern graphic design. His project was a runner up in the 2011 Core77 Design Awards [2], and you can watch a video demonstration about it here [3]. Read an in-depth Q&A [2] with Yee on Core77’s website [2] here.
