    Couldn't agree more. This was a student project, so I guess it's always going to be more demonstrating design thinking more than anything else.

    However, what would have been a far more interesting approach would be to address how packaging design could deter and prevent potential smokers from starting, as apposed to making the ones already addicted having a shitty experience. Purely anecdotal, but no matter the approach (health scare images in EU, or completely unbranded like here in Australia) I've never met a smoker put off by the packaging.
