IdN v21n6: Packaging Design Issue – It’s Love at First Sight!
IdN Magazine – International Designers Network – on packaging in its newest issue:
Presenting our biggest-ever feature story! More than 50 of their favourite packaging designs by 42 creatives who specialise in packaging design – toughest of genres. Plus their thoughts on how to excel at it. This is one you’ll want to save.
Packaging design should be not so much a case of love at first sight as love at pre-sight since it is meant to make you desire the object it encases even before you’ve actually laid eyes on it. And although all the usual design rules apply, there are some additional considerations that come into play where packaging is concerned.
Among them is not wishing to add to the world’s waste-disposal problems. The ideal scenario would be packaging that is so attractive that you can’t bear to throw it away. It could be re-used to package something else, utilised as decoration, or simply hung onto as a keepsake.
