It all started with Iliya Varlamov’s post on city projects: “The projects we realize on our own: city cigarette disposal. Within this project we are going to finance the manufacturing of or purchase outdoor cigarette receptacles and install them along Tverskaya street in Moscow. This would be an example of how it doesn’t take much to improve your street.”
From this point on the project really took off.
Project technical specifications:
Visiting Tverskaya street for the reality check: Holy smoke!
Searching for ideas.
Diving into the process.
Determining the optimal size and structure.
Defining the details.
Finalizing our choice and moving on to metal models.
Field-testing our mock-up.
Preparing the drawings and schematics.
Using the Pepelkus blueprints to determine the actual packaging dimensions.
Dialing in the dimensions and constructing the box.
Typesetting the packaging layout.
Ending up ditching the horizontal text placement. The final packaging houses Pepelkus cigarette receptacle and two plastic screw clamps.
