Have we started a revolution? In reading this recent post on the terrific Zoetrope101, you’d think so. It’s left us very proud that we’re doing our part for the good of design…
“Some time ago we mentioned somewhere – perhaps even this very blog, that we had fallen madly, deeply in love with a CD / DVD presentation system called Jewelboxing, devised by the obviously very bright people at Coudal Partners. We mentioned then that the product really was the only way to go if you are looking for a quality delivery mechanism.
Now we’re saying that you don’t have a choice anymore – if you are a client, if you are a potential client who requires CD /DVD presentation, you have just had the choice of jewel case taken out of your hands.
The reason for this?
I’ve had it with the normal case, it breaks, it scratches, it discharges its contents on the floor without warning and the little spindles break off leaving you with no cover.
I’m over it. It makes us look bad if we have gone to all the trouble to get the content right only to present it in packaging that always makes me think it should be glued to the front of a magazine.
No if’s or but’s, no discussion. If you’re engaging us to do a CD/DVD presentation you are up for Jewelboxing products. Simple – you get them in for us, or we will, but you will be using packaging required by us.
The cost is not high but the first impression is major, and that’s what we’re looking for. You might not care how your product is delivered, but we do.”
They’ve triumphantly hoisted the Jewelboxing flag over Millers Creek, Los Angeles, St. Laurent, Zionsville, Helena, Saint Louis, Durham, San Francisco, Shpherdsville, Kentwood, Valencia, San Antonio, Tempe, Medford, Zeist, and Pearce.
