Judging a Book by its Cover

I guess you could say I'm a shallow consumer. I judge a product by its package. When trying new beers at the store I shoot for high percentage and cool bottle art. I even judge whole fantasy novels by the cover art. I find it fascinating that a products line's packaging has so much sway on whether a product is successful or not, especially with cleaning products. Unless brand loyalty comes into play, consumers are dramatically swayed by what the packaging says about a product, or at least for my... Read More

Online Shopping Effecting Packaging Design?

Packaging design is slowly abandoning the conventional wisdom about creating a consistent brand experience. At first I... Read More

Mushrooms Used As Material For Packaging

Mushrooms may no longer be reserved for eating. Packaging engineer and environmental director Sam Harrington as well as many others at Green Island, say mushrooms can be used as a raw material for packaging. The commercial packaging is made out of the root structure of mushrooms, or the mycelium. This is the part that feeds on agricultural waste to derive energy, not the part that generates spores. The goal is to eliminate plastics, such as polystyrene, in packaging that are harmful to the environment. It takes five days to make... Read More

Apple Designs Wirelessly Charged Packaging

Apple has recently showed interest in wirelessly charging its in-store devices while still in the original packaging. The concept of the new patent application, called Active Electronic Media Packaging, is to use RF power transmitters in retail stores to wirelessly charge its products. With this technology, products such as ipads or iphones will be able to display media content and receive software updates while still in the original packaging. This patent may force packaging design companies to become more innovative to stay competitive. I'm not really sure how worthwhile this... Read More

Packaging Design

Packaging design is the process of creating product and brand-specific packaging. Packaging design is essential to effective branding; brand recognition and prominence are increased greatly by companies that package their products creatively and effectively. The distinctness of a product’s packaging can mean the difference between its success or its failure compared to other similar products.

Good product packaging is often necessary for the protection of products while they are in transit or storage. Packaging can prevent exposure to moisture, impact or other hazards. Well-designed packaging can resist these hazards while maintaining an attractive appearance, which can increase the product’s appeal. Good packaging is especially important in point-of-purchase contexts, particularly in the case of consumer goods on retail shelves. In such situations, packaging is responsible for protecting the product and informing potential customers about the product. Packaging can also be a venue for the display of advertising copy and distinctive design elements like color, graphics and shape, all of which contribute to brand strength. Investing in packaging design can greatly increase the brand strength of a company.

Blister packs, bags, boxes, clamshell packaging, envelopes, header cards, outer wrap and tubes are just a few examples of packaging varieties. Each packaging configuration offers different advantages. Blister packs, for example, are usually clear yet durable, which allows the packaging’s contents to be visible to potential buyers. Clamshell packaging offers similar benefits, though they can be difficult to open. Packaging designers must consider every variable that will affect a potential customer’s experience with their product. Some clamshell packaging varieties have inspired a phenomenon called “wrap rage;” it is the experience of trying to open clamshell packages, which have become notorious because they can be very difficult to open. Because effective packaging design can be time consuming, and because it often requires the attention of skilled artists, writers, consumer behavior researchers and other specialists, many companies outsource packaging design to fulfillment services and other similar operations. Fulfillment services can design and produce packaging on behalf of a client, which allows for their clients to focus their entire operations on the production of their primary products instead of diverting energy to the design and production of packaging.
