In parallel to the PurePort’s manufacture, the product’s packaging and user experience also required design attention, in particular the un-boxing experience, social media and logistical freight considerations. An important output from this process was an instructional how-to video integrating our latest product prototype and our preferred methods of use.

In order to arrive at this final stage, much design thought was focused on packaging, un-boxing and usage. Costs here were minimized while user value maximized.
The unboxing experience was tested using photo realistic rendering and this provides a final standard, in terms of quality, to aim for as we move closer towards mass production.
An instructional manual was also developed in a folded accordion style. One of the last stages in finalizing the proper modes of usability and confirming human factors of the product and procedural usage.
Point of sale, bar-coding, logistics & carton packaging were also considered and designed for appropriately.
