Orange Glo, Littleton, CO, contacted Display Pack about a plastic clamshell that could function as the spherical “form” for both the product and the package. The package needed to hold a slurry of detergent with the consistency of pancake batter and support a working temperature of about 120˚. Orange Glo, a subsidiary of Church & Dwight Co. Inc., also wanted a package yielding a large promotional billboard and to hold additional components for the Oxi-Ball.

The design uses a PVC clamshell to bring together function and eye-catching form.
