The Trivium
Forever Canvas
Challenge 2022

Welcome to the new design competition from Trivium Packaging that celebrates the possibilities of metal packaging and invites you to use it as a canvas for your creativity and design.

It's called the Forever Canvas because our metal packaging recycles forever, which makes it a gleaming blank canvas that can uniquely come back for more, over, and over, again. So when we say the possibilities are endless, it’s true in so many ways. We need your help to take selected products from our range, in all their raw metal beauty, and create clever, eye-catching, memorable designs.
