How many industrial designers have a world-wide fan club when they are design school Freshmen? Andrew Kim has had one ever since he took on Coca-Cola in his Eco Coke Bottle design, the square-carton, green answer to the Coke bottle and can. Now, Kim is taking on the Google in his design and packaging of Google Vitamin and his simple concept for the Google Vitamin website.
Kim's design work is about as thoughtful, thought-provoking, and as thorough as it gets. He's now 18 years old; imagine what his future holds.
Here is his concept for Google Vitamin, disclaimed, of course, as being a student project that "does not reflect the views or plans of Google."
"Why not?" you might ask.

The Google Vitamin order page is also as simple as can be.

It even includes the Google Vitamin advisor, a short questionnaire for those that are not sure of what vitamins they may need.

Of course, Google Vitamin would go mobile; perhaps even on Andrew Kim's HTC 1 Smart Phone. Oh, didn't I mention Kim has also taken on Apple's iPhone?
