Img_6514

Background

Patch Together is the website that gives everyone the opportunity of being a toy designer.  Cartoonist Ralph Ferres and German designer VISEone teamed up with Patch Together to release their limited edition Sea Hunter (On Demand) resin figure.

This is a dragon who lives in the near of a big ocean. Twice a day he flies over the water to watch if he could catch a meal. Whenever he sees a poor tuna - it's his.

Packaging

The packaging for this figure is somewhat nondescript. Since it’s an extremely small run figure, they didn’t shell out money for packaging design.  It’s a simple box with printed out sheets glued to the front and back. Those sheets feature artwork that the resin was based on.  On the inside, the figure is packaged in dual Styrofoam trays.

Background

Patch Together is the toy design competition website that brings together artists from different backgrounds and with varying abilities.  These artists submit their toy designs and then compete to win a shot at having their characters turned into vinyl (or resin) goodness.

The first production piece from Patch Together is the Yeti Guy.  Designed by the London-based artist Nevermore, the Yeti Guy (and Girl) has been released in 3 colorways: brown, white and pink.  This design was the winner of the April ’08 competition.

Each of the Yeti colorways is contained within its very own specialized packaging.  The outer box design includes an illustration of the figure on the front panel, a background scene specific to that character and a background story on the rear panel.  Inside, the piece is contained within interlocking dual plastic trays.
