Beautiful and Expressive Packaging Design

Advertisement

Packaging design has the primary goal to attract customers’ attention. For this purpose, package designs can not simply inform the customers, but also provoke feelings and communicate emotions. An effective packaging looks attractive, impresses with its creativity and is just nice to have on the shelf.

As an ongoing part of our monday inspiration series today we present excellent examples of beautiful, attractive and communicative packaging design. We have also tried to present creative and unusual ideas which you could use for your projects. Below the gallery you will also find some further references to blogs and resources related to packaging design.

Tasty Type16
Izze Beverage Co®. doesn’t boast their nonprofit mission on their label, but the design’s simplicity hints that they are a different kind of company. Izze’s sales grew 450% per year over the first two years without any TV, print, or online advertising. Surely their success is due in part to the bottle — clearly branded with Trade Gothic™ caps and a clever use of a Caslon™ asterisk, emulating a cross-section of the fruit contained therein.

    “Vintage Packaging
    This design is more than 20 years, but it still looks very impressive. Beautiful color scheme for a vintage t-shirt packaging.”

    It’s a Kix cereal box with an offer for a vintage t-shirt, not t-shirt packaging as you stated. This also isn’t 20 years old, it’s a vintage version put out by General Mills for Target.

    Some of these are really nice, like the banana juice. Some of them completely miss the mark though. Psychedelic colors and patterns work well for things like candy, but there are some mundane products here that I want to easily recognize on a store shelf. Some of these things just want to visually assault you.

    If you scroll quickly, they all look very similar.
    Why do food companies want their food to look like museum pieces. They are more concerned with “looking cool” than “looking tasty”
    Alot of these look like they are done in some soviet era government bureau.
    The producers of these foods should have not been so gullible.

    mmmm pot of cardboard & fonts. Marketing always tastes better!

    …but overall the packaging (waste) selected for the article wasn’t horribly excessive. (well except for the sponge, the pyramid marketing tea, the cardboard pasta, the WTF Caffee, and the SteamPunk Subculture Identity thieves, the single bottle wine crate…. and that &@*%^ cheese sponge again. )

    The designers… society made them… who in turn package society in their image and sell it back. 100% Recycled. Brilliant! (yum! burp! yum! burp!)

    Nice designs if you want to win awards. The ONLY design in that lot that actually SELLS a product is vitalize. The rest are just 1990′s retro, head stuck up your own jacksy, look at me I’m a designer designs. WAKE UP – you’re here to SELL products. Your designs should SELL not fulfil your dreamy selfulfilled desires of gaetting a pat on the back from your fellow designers. The quicker you learn that the MORE money you’ll make for you and your clients. DUH!

Can the packaging be reduced further? Definitely!

    “Packaging design has the primary goal to attract customers’ attention.”

    Wrong mission statement… The primary goal of packaging design is to create an impulse to buy this and not the other product. This is what the designers are paid to do. This is why so few of those “beautiful designs” are successful as products — They are designed for other designers, not “the unsophisticated” who are the majority of people making purchasing decisions…
