What is packaging design?

Packaging design is the process of creating everything you see on the outside of a product. It is often the first thing a customer sees before they know anything about your brand or the product contained inside, so it plays an important role. The design might involve the construction of the box as well as any graphics or text on the package, this includes labels and interior packaging.

What needs packaging design?

Quite simply, anything that comes in a package needs packaging design! It's just as important for e-commerce products as it is for shelf positioned retail products. The design process involves researching your customer market to understand their needs and then designing packaging that says something to that consumer.

What makes 'good' design?

What constitutes good packaging design will vary depending on what is being packaged.  Different consumer products have different goals for their packaging design. A luxury fragrance will require packaging that looks and feels indulgent and glamorous, whereas a pet toy will require a vibrant and playful design.

Good packaging design will be eye-catching, visually pleasing, and memorable, and align with the product and target market.
