PLANIT is a small planet and space inspired product which acts as holder for push – pins. Push – pins are widely used in schools and homes. Being a product with a sharp end, it is not advised for the kids to use them without any adult supervision. Focusing on the age group of 5 – 15 years, I decided to come up with a packaging that is anti-prick and the pins don't end up falling all over the place by just a slight push. It is important to understand that when dealing with kids, whatever you make has to be attractive and playful. And hence, I have attempted to solve all these problems through my packaging.

The brand I chose for this projects is 'Venus Traders', a very famous stationary store in Pune, Maharashtra. taking inspiration from the literal meaning of the name of the brand, i. e. Venus, a planet, I decided to keep my packaging revolving around planets and space. In this Packaging you'll see 3 different planets; Earth, Mars and Saturn.
