How To Avoid Failure and Have an Awesome Package Design

Posted by Karen Kerski

I was standing in the grocery store staring at the shelf looking for my brand.

Becoming frustrated, I tracked down an employee to help me find the brand I had to have. They brought me back to where I had been standing and pointed to a box I’d overlooked.

Posted by Karen Smith
