Perfect Package

Optimize Packaging Innovation in Record Time

Packaging plays a critical role in driving Consumer Packed Goods & Retail sales. Shoppers make many of their purchase decisions within five to eight seconds.

Packaging plays a critical role in driving Consumer Packed Goods & Retail sales. Shoppers make many of their purchase decisions within five to eight seconds. The package design, color and artwork serve to stop, hold and close the shopper to select the product that is right for them. With the decline of the effectiveness of mass media, it is critical that Consumer Packed Goods & Retail companies ensure that their product can gain consumers attention, communicate their value and drive them to place the product in their basket based on the communicated value v. the price.

Perfect Package turns what has been a serial development process plagued by multiple rounds of rework, resulting in sub-optimal designs into a concurrent design process integrating internal and external organizations to create breakthrough packaging in record time!
