Silver Sun Screen Wrap

I was headed out to the dumpster to throw out the trash before beginning my early-morning work session. As I put a worn automobile-windshield sunscreen into the dumpster, I felt that twinge of wrapper’s inspiration that keeps so many things from entering the trash stream.

Back in the studio I knocked out this prototype wrap. A deep blue ribbon covered up a big crease in the silver mylar. A thin yellow ribbon provided the necessary graphic complexity. And last of all I took a silver plastic cosmetic-product cap that was sitting on my drawing table. I had saved it for months and had even tested it on numerous wraps. It had never made the cut until today.

The sunscreen is lined with foam beneath its silver mylar. That gives the finished package a very comfortable “hand.”
