Two themes guided the work of participants in the 2018 German edition of the Verallia Design Awards: “spreadables” and “active drinks” (health drinks). 

Once again this year, the German design competition was open to “Packaging Development Management” Master’s students from Stuttgart Media University.

  • The best concept prize was awarded to Leonie Vetter, Laura Kurpat and Tessa-Marijana Cubelic for their houmous jar. Its round shape and wooden lid are inspired by traditional matcha bowls and the Japanese spiritual concept of wabi-sabi
  • The technical feasability award went to Liane Jehle, Tobias Fehr and Lisa Scherer for their health drink bottleflowing shapeprominent heel and soft shoulders on which are engraved falling droplets


Since 2009, different Verallia subsidiaries have organized an annual design competition. In 2018, the Verallia Design Awards are organized in six countries: Germany, SpainFranceItalyPortugal and Ukraine. Students and young art or design school graduates imagine, from a defined theme, an innovative type of glass packaging. The entrants receive support from Verallia’s teams to familiarize themselves with the glass material and its demanding industrial requirements.
