Packaging design – impressing at the PoS

As brand ambassador with buying impulse

Consumers decide for or against a product literally at the last second. On the shelf and in e-commerce, the winner is the one who convinces and inspires with his packaging design and PoS appearance.
On the basis of a precise brand strategy, we develop protectable brand and product names, packaging design with charisma, sustainable packaging materials and attractive PoS systems for you. We advise you on production and offer you all the necessary services for implementation.

Evaluation

We attach great importance to comprehensive preparation. Without a profound understanding of the situation of your brand, of the competition and of your objectives, we will not touch a pen. Evaluation is the basis of every strategy, every guiding idea and every design concept and is therefore crucial to the success of your project.

Brand and design
Before we lay the strategic foundations for your brand or begin the design process, we analyze the status quo of your brand in the context of the key influences. We focus on the following questions: Do your brand and the design communicate the positioning and most important product benefits quickly and comprehensibly? Is the product range structured in a comprehensible way? Can your brand stand out and assert itself at the PoS? Is the target group approach correctly chosen? From which trends can your brand profit in the long term?

As a result of the evaluation, we show options for action and recommendations for the subsequent strategy and creative process.

Strategy

A successful strategy is not created over a glass of red wine. It comes about through painstaking detailed work and an understanding of the needs of the target group. The success of a strategy depends to a large extent not only on solving the specific task at hand, but above all on always keeping an eye on the big picture.

Strategy
Design follows strategy. For us, this is both a claim and an attitude in order to successfully position new brands and to strengthen established brands or to accompany them into new segments and categories. Methodically, we use a brand model that describes the identity of your brand and at the same time provides answers to the portfolio, brand architecture and design.

As a result, we develop new brands with a distinctive profile and strengthen the profile of existing brands. We help to clearly define and differentiate brands and product lines in the portfolio. We structure assortments according to criteria that are relevant to consumers and arrange information in a hierarchically meaningful way. We develop brand and product names, conceive brand claims and campaign slogans that are heard and long remembered.

Creation

Who has not bought a convincingly packaged product spontaneously? It’s a pleasure to buy something attractive! We love good design. We always go one step further in creation and will challenge you. Because consistently implementing a great design requires courage, a lot of heart and a lot of commitment.

Packaging Design
Packaging is of paramount importance to the success of your brand. We create innovative packaging designs with strategic know-how, creative power and great attention to detail. Whether it’s a single product or an assortment, for traditional retail or e-commerce – highlighting the uniqueness of your brand, powerful and catchy visual signals, and a clear communication hierarchy are the maxims of our developments.
 
Form development
We develop and optimize packaging solutions made of glass, plastic, cardboard and other materials. Our packaging has brand character, consumer-friendly handling and a good display effect. Logistical as well as production and manufacturing requirements are taken into account, as are aspects of disposal and recycling. We advise you on the use of sustainable materials and printing methods and support you in the selection of suitable partners and suppliers.

Displays and PoS communication
The success of your brand often depends on the way it is placed and approached in the retail trade. If you succeed in offering retailers attractive displays, shop-in-shop systems and secondary placements, this will give your brand additional impetus and strengthen sales. For this purpose, we develop creative and communicative solutions that go hand in hand with the values and packaging design of your brand.
 
3D visualization
Renderings replace elaborately photographed pack shots. Animations bring packaging to life. As part of our design process, we develop digital packshots for multiple uses in brand and product communication and e-commerce.

Implementation

With precise preparation of the design data, we ensure that the result meets your expectations. Early contact between our final artwork and your printers ensures that the technical possibilities can be fully exploited in printing.

Implementation
The greatest care and professionalism is required at the interface between design and production. That’s why we place great emphasis on teamwork between our consultants, creatives and production professionals. We advise you on production issues, create all the necessary print and production templates, and provide on-site support for print approvals.

Management

Project completed. Relaunch implemented. But what then? Developing and nurturing a brand, expanding a product range and cultivating the brand experience do not stop when a project is completed. On the contrary. They are more important right now than ever! We support, we protect, we activate, or we accompany you as a sparring partner.

Brand and design consulting
Brand management and product range management are living processes. To keep your brand on track, we offer you a wide range of support. This can be done on a project basis or as a lead responsibility.

We offer to regularly analyze the appearance and image of your brand as a whole or in sections; from the perspective of your target groups and with an understanding of brand positioning. With the help of Customer Journey Mapping and the Brand Universe, we identify deficits in the appearance and brand experience and can develop creative solutions with pinpoint accuracy.

Design Management
We develop inspiring brand books and binding guidelines that enable a consistent appearance of your brand and efficient management. We develop or recommend the appropriate digital branding platform and provide the necessary support.

Support for operational brand management
We support and accompany you in your operational tasks. Based on conceptual considerations, we design creative packaging solutions for editions, seasonals and promotions and the corresponding displays and PoS furniture. We create texts, take care of production, art direction and art buying, and are responsible for final artwork and litho.
