Design & packaging

The pack's impact

Is it possible today to talk about consumer or luxury products without referring to packaging' Packaging design now plays an essential role in the marketing mix and purchasing decisions and represents a brands last opportunity to convince the consumer; in fact figures show it is gradually becoming the most important decision criterion*:

  • Over 70% of purchases are unplanned.
  • 90% of products picked up are bought by consumers who make their decision in less than 3 seconds.
  • When packaging is intelligently designed, sales increase by 20% to 30% without additional communication.

Everything points to the fact that this role will be reinforced in the light of an ever-increasing range of products and consumers, who constantly find themselves caught between temptation and caution.
