Premium packaging for collectibles
Recreation of motifs

Jim Henson’s The Dark Crystal (1982) inspired a whole generation of film effects artists now working at Wētā Workshop. In 2019, the prequel series launched on Netflix; Wētā Workshop had the chance to express their fandom by creating a premium range of 1:6 scale collectibles for The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance.
In the series, we return to the world of Thra with the Crystal of Truth at its heart. When the first peoples of Thra arrived, they hollowed out a mountain surrounding the Crystal and built a castle of three walls with a great portal above. When the Suns moved over the Crystal, they stood framed in the portal, a triangle surrounding a circle.
This mythology informed one of the most common motifs of the series, which was recreated for the premium packaging. The colour palette, iconography, spot varnishing and font treatments were richly layered to present consumers with packaging equal to the calibre of artistry within the collectibles themselves.​​​​​​​
