A 2% dehydration leads to a 20% drop in concentration*

Drinking water helps you to think clearly, and keeps you healthy, so it’s really important to drink enough of it. The bottlecoolerpenholder prompts you to have a bottle of water in front of you at your desk. It is made from thermally insulating neoprene and is a wet-suit style jacket for bottles that will keep water cool, as well as store pens and pencils needed during the day. It is stretchy enough to fit over all standard 500ml water bottles.

• Keeps water and stationery together on desk : acts as a reminder to drink regularly

• Helps encourage reuse of waterbottles
• Thermally insulating neoprene keeps the water cool
• Name tag on the inside of the handle

The packaging of the product provided a particular challenge. It needed to hold, what is quite an unusual form, and communicate the function of the cooler. The solution I devised communicates that the cover is for a water bottle, and highlights that pens are to be placed in holes.
