How important is Packaging Design to Your Product's Success?by Design Dimensions Graphic, Interior,Stationery Design
Packaging is the third largest industry in America valued at $110 billion per annum. It is estimated that there are 350 billion packages which comprise of the tiniest item in pharmaceuticals to super sacks used that are used to carry thousands of pounds of content and which can withstand rigorous transport.
Product Packaging Design
Consider what product packaging design does to your product:
· Most importantly, packaging identifies your brand.
· Packaging communicates with the consumer and presents an image, displays the product and also provides instructions for its use.
· Packaging distinguishes your product from your competitor’s in its design, color, and shape.
· Packaging is your product’s promotional advertisement. It is the last thing the consumer sees about your product before making a decision to purchase it.
To see how important product label design is, take the case of Kim 15 AD which produces a line of Food products. Although their products are of high quality, their initial packaging was not impressive and did not say much about their product. After working with a team of professional designers and branding houses their food products were given a totally new makeover. The new look resulted in doubling their sales. Generally packaging works out to 10% of the retail cost of a product. However this margin would go up or down considering the product you are selling. Cosmetic and electronic manufacturers may spend up to 40% or more of the product cost on packaging, as would gift items. An attractively packaged product makes all the difference at the point of sale. The extra care and cost required to produce an attractive package are more than covered through increase in sales. There is a psychology to a consumer’s selection of a product and it depends on product design and packaging. brand logo designing
Points to Consider in Product Label Design:
· Packaging should be functional. It should protect your product against any kind of damage or deterioration.
· It should also be able to withstand transport and shipping.
· It should be environmentally friendly
· It should be easy to open and the product easy to use.
· It should be tamper proof.
· Packaging should have consumer appeal, a distinctiveness that makes your product stand out against a hundred other products on the shelf.
· Packaging, labeling and any additional information should be designed keeping in mind the profile of your target consumer. Understand your market and target them specifically. Packaging for a generic audience can confuse the consumer.
· Packaging should help build your brand image. It’s about communicating your product and building a relationship with your consumers through your brand image
· Packaging should stand out against your competitor’s products.
