5 ideas to help you design new packages differently

Think differently when designing a new product package!

Designing packaging structures to enhance consumer experiences during product use encourages repeat purchase & advocacy.

Take a moment to consider closure style and its impact:


This product packaging looks and feels simple & organic. The closure furthers the consumer experience in the same direction.

Do you agree?

Product packaging is a powerful consumer touch point, it is the product!

Organize your packaging brief into 5 layers:

  1. The proposed shelf, social, and digital landscape
  2. The value proposition & product innovation
  3. Hierarchy of product information & regulatory
  4. Brand architecture, tone & story
  5. Package structure, innovation and end of life options

Good design direction impacts purchase decision and enables repeat purchase.

No other marketing vehicle shouts for your shopper’s attention  in-store, is seen as often or as long,  goes home with the shopper, is touched, opened, smelled, closed and picked up repeatedly like your product packaging.
