When you visited an unfamiliar place,
did you not find yourself more excited about going to
and browsing in local supermarkets than its tourist spots?
The supermarket is, in a sense, a “tourist spot”
where you can experience the local lifestyle in all its uniqueness.
We, eight package designers, have created our own PB (private brand)
which we wish to see lined up on shelves of supermarkets all over the world.

What is “pakection!”?

“pakection!” is a group of Kansai-based package design specialists that we formed in 2008. The members are from various fields, i.e., design office, freelance etc., but everyone is a member of Japan Package Design Association (JPDA). We are package design enthusiasts and we keep our dedication to the improvement of our craft.
