In order to celebrate the 165 national and international awards Omdesign has won in the last three years, they decided to create this packaging to reinforce their commitment to the future. This package made of burnt wood carries a strong message with a simple gesture, meaning that by working together, people can help return to the forest part of what was destroyed by the fires, as well as what Omdesign takes from it to develop the solutions they create every day. This caricature of a water dispenser, doling out water drop by drop, illustrates Omdesign environmental concern.

Since the goal was to make their new environmental statement available primarily as a digital publication, the analogue, haptic world (paper structure, cut edges, etc.) was transported into the digital world. For the individual chapters, environmental symbols were made of paper collages, photographed and used as key visuals. At the same time, the linear graphics and illustrations form a design counterpoint to the factual part of the explanation.
