Describe the brief from the client
To design packaging for the updated 2011 in-flight menu for IndiGo, India's coolest low-cost airline.

Describe the challenges and key objectives
Because IndiGo is a low-cost airline, their budget is limited and they can't provide conventional sources of entertainment on board. With this in mind, the on-board food packaging needed to multitask and provide an alternative source of entertainment for passengers.

Describe how you arrived at the final design
Each package was designed to add fun and interest to the onboard experience. Some are culturally reflective. For example the 'Spicy Kulcha' is based on vintage Indian matchboxes, whilst 'Mini Dosai' reference Udipi-style restaurants in South India. Others are intended to entertain. For the salad packaging we created a game – search for the ingredients hidden in the 'bizarre bazaar.' And finally, some were created to serve as mementos from the customer's trip, like the reusable Atta Biskoot tin.

Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market

Because of it's strong brand voice and unique innovations for a low-cost carrier, IndiGo has become India's no.1 airline with 19% market share. IndiGo's food packaging has become one of it's best-known features, with customers keeping and collecting the tins, and showcases in international publications such as Wallpaper*.
