 Series
Accession: 2401-II.
Scope and Content:

Contains examples of Wawa product packaging, proofs and renderings of packaging artwork, and documents that trace the process of packaging design. In the mid 1990s, Wawa redesigned much of the packaging for their dairy and juice products (such as milk, ice cream, and flavored teas). A majority of items deal with these design changes, particularly the artwork for drink and ice cream cartons. These items also illustrate Wawa's interaction with various marketing, container, and supply companies that helped with the packaging redesign. Examples of these companies are Richard P. Ritter, Inc. (advertising and marketing firm), Turkey Hill Dairy, Sweetheart Cup Company, and container companies like Potlatch, Champion International, Westvaco, and Tetra Pak. The Packaging Series is divided into two Subseries: Containers and Design. The Containers Subseries includes examples of containers and artwork, and artwork proofs and renderings. The Design Subseries contains proofs, and containers that were part of the design process.
