5 Best Blogs on Packaging Design

Whether it’s a bottle of ketchup or a gift for a loved one, good packaging design is incredibly important, ultimately determining your brand position, perception and price.

Our two biggest senses used when making a buying decision or indeed just an initial enquiry, are sight and touch. Therefore colour and texture is so important. The make up of your pack, box, bottle or label will have a direct influence on the buyer and ultimately help them make a decision on whether to explore more or even buy.
