My interactive shoe packaging, includes a climbing rope that doubles as a hanging feature in stores, as well as a handle for customers after purchase. The structure has wells for each shoe, which is held in place by rock climbing jugs. This way, the shoes can stand vertically, when held by the rope handle, mimicking the position the shoes would be in when in use. When shoes are taken out, the customer can remove the climbing jugs, to reveal instructions for repurpose. The climbing jugs have holes, so they can be screwed into drywall and used as a small planter, or a catcher for keys and loose change.
For my chalk bag packaging, I designed a hang tag that represented a climbers hand reaching into it. This whimsical approach is functional, and easy for climbers of all experience levels to relate to.
