Imago: Insect Entomology Set

by Hanna Karraby

For this design, I was inspired by the juxtaposition of brutality and beauty in the world of insect entomology, and the packaging acts as both an artful display and a functional kit. The set includes the basic tools needed for both capturing, euthanizing, and mounting an insect. The housing is built out of translucent acrylic to mimic the membrane of wings, and also opens in a wing-like motion. The chrysalis in the center houses the heaviest supplies. A sheet of clear acrylic is used to allow the chrysalis to “float” within the package. The box sits comfortably in a work station, equipped with a mounting board and a drawer filled with various tools. All typography and illustrations have been etched into the exterior, to maintain an ethereal and weightless look.
