Tesla announces Roadster 3.0, an upgrade package with massive range

As CEO Elon Musk first announced yesterday, Tesla is detailing a new extended-range upgrade for its seminal Roadster — the Lotus-based two-door that preceded today’s Model S sedan. It turns out that the upgrade is far more than a battery swap: yes, that’s part of it, but a retrofit aerodynamics kit will improve the car’s drag by some 15 percent, while new tires, wheel bearings, and changes to brake drag will decreasing rolling resistance by 20 percent.

Today I’m going to showcase 30 creative package designs featuring bottles and jars that are not only unique but tell a story. Here you’ll see these vessels packed with all sorts of different items ranging from wine to salsa. Scroll down and take a look for yourself.

20 Ridiculously Creative Package Designs You Have To See

When you’re at shopping at the supermarket, chances are you’ll probably buy things that you might not neccesarily need. Sometimes, what lures you in is not the product itself, but the way it’s presented to you. Marketers may spend tons of money on advertising campaigns or huge billboards, but nothing works better than clever packaging.

To get the consumers’ attention, the package design must be clever, funny, unusual, and stand out from the crowd to grab your attention. Today I’d like to share 20 really creative and clever package designs that would lose their meaning without the products inside them. From honey that’s made to look like it’s still in the hive to architecture-inspired spaghetti, there’s plenty of creative designs for you to browse through.
