Color palette: Weak, outdated

Strengths

The use of basic colors in a strip on the top and bottom of the box distracts the attention from the product diluting the high tech image. The photo of the model is too simple and casual in comparison to the sophisticated and elegant design of cube console, thus subtracting visual impact. In addition, the model...
