Alumna Wins 2013 Top Beverage Package

Posted on: November 5, 2013

Megan-Barry-2Congratulations goes to alumna Megan Barry for winning Top Beverage Package of 2013.

Megan Barry, a 2012 Advertising grad who works as a graphic designer for Trungale, Egan & Associates (TE+A) in Chicago, helped design the packaging for Space Saver juices, teas and lemonades, which was awarded the top beverage package of 2013 by Beverage Industry magazine.

The editors of Beverage Industry selected the Space Saver package as a top 10 finalist after examining dozens of innovative beverage packages that launched this year. The magazine then asked the public to vote for one of the finalists to receive the top honor. The winners will be officially announced in Beverage Industry's December 2013 issue.

"It's a great feeling to know that everyone's hard work is being noticed," Barry said.

Barry began working for TE+A with a three-month internship that turned into a full-time position. She has been working full time with the company as a graphic designer for one year.

Space Saver, a product of consumer beverage manufacturer Leahy-IFP, worked with TE+A to launch its new fridge-pack beverage line. From brand creation and packaging design of the 5-liter bag-in-box container to product video, ecommerce site and support collateral, TE+A created a fully integrated product launch for this direct to consumer campaign.

Barry and her creative director designed the Space Saver side panel. Barry then used that to design the rest of the package and collateral pieces, such as point of sales, 3D renders,'s ecommerce site and social media headers.

Barry is definitely one to watch with making such big strides in her first year as a professional designer!
