If Cigarette Boxes Like This How Dare You Smoke?!

Let’s admit, that smoking is very gross and harms people’s health. Each year, millions of people die due to cigarette-related causes, and yet, that can’t stop people from smoking. In the past few years, the government has tried so many methods such as increasing the taxes rate on cigarettes, abanding smoking from more public places and designing cigarette packagings that have educational messages on them.
Serbia designer Miroslav Vujovic Graforidza was one of the designers who jumped on the anti-smoking packaging design trend. His toothless cigarette box design convenes a strong message that smoking is bad for both your health and teeth. Every time people pull out a cigarette the box will reveal an opening, when the entire pack of cigarette is finished, the person on the package will be toothless. It makes you think twice before you want to have another cigarette.
Packaging design should have a meaning, not just to make the package of the product look good, don’t get me wrong, pretty packaging means a lot in the marketing industries. Packaging designer should focus more on the functionality of a product more.

    I agree with you! I understand the designer’s idea of communicating the consequences of smoking, but the packaging…I don’t know if it works properly. After I saw the picture, I don’t think consumers will buy cigarettes from this brand anymore.

    Honestly speaking, this is kind of hilarious! I am the first to tell anyone that smoking is bad for their health and mine. But, I don’t know I agree that people will stop buying this brand of cigarets. If anything this may even drive up sales, among smokers and non smokers as a collectable item. The design is kind of genius!

    Yes, smoking is very bad for you and there should be package designs like this. To me it sort of makes fun of the side effects of smoking. In the picture it’s show what smoking will do to your teeth. I think designs like can definitely help some people and help stop new smokers. This can even detour kids from smoking. There should be more designs like this everywhere.
