A few things to consider with your Package Design

Less is more

Sometimes simplicity is key, and that holds true in packaging. A package has micro-seconds to sell itself and attract attention when sitting on a shelf, surrounded by other packaging.

Be Playful

If you have the opportunity to be playful with your packaging, take it. No matter how great your product is, you only get 1 chance to make a strong first impression.

Be Different

If you have a product that a lot of other people produce as well, try to be innovative in how you display it. Think beyond a typical jar and label. 

Go Modern

It’s all about connecting with your audience. When you have a chance go modern, sleek, and simple. Use clean lines, simple colors, and sans serif fonts to achieve a modern look. 

Be Bright

If your product is brightly colored, draw inspiration from it. Use accents of the bright colors in your packaging. When your item is sitting on a shelf it needs to scream, PICK ME!

Tell Your Story

If you can tell a story with your packaging, do it. People love stories, and they love uncovering the information they may not have known otherwise. A strong story will help customers connect with your product.

Focus on the Product

If you have a quality product, let it speak for itself. Don’t feel the need to surround it with shiny, obnoxious wrappings if it doesn’t need it. This goes back to our first point…less is more.

Go Different

Use imagery, whether they’re photos or illustration that are a little out there, something that isn’t expected. Break through the clutter.
