Stunning Beauty Packaging Design Secrets Revealed!

Posted by Don Keller


Walk through any department store cosmetics department, especially during the holidays and your senses will be overcome with the sights and smells of the huge range of perfume and beauty packaging designs that are before you.

It is no surprise the beauty departments in many stores are the most well lit, to the point that the product’s packaging takes center stage to all the other products in the store and the consumer almost becomes distracted by the various choices to be had.

How to Work with a Packaging Designer

Posted by Don Keller

Every year approximately 30,000 new products are launched in the marketplace and more than 80% of them fail.

Ensuring that your product is successful begins with how you present the product to potential customers. And this starts with your packaging design. 

When making a choice between your product and your competitors on the shelf, most consumers will not have the time or energy to weigh up the pros and cons of the product in detail.
