Mace Security International, Inc., a globally recognized leader in personal safety and security, is a winner of the prestigious A’Design Award & Competition for the 2016 redesign of its Mace® Brand product packaging.
A’Design Award & Competition is the world’s largest international design awards program recognizing top designs that exhibit an exemplary level of perfection. Entries to the A' Packaging Design Awards are peer-reviewed and anonymously judged by an expert jury panel of leading academics, influential press members and experienced professionals. Mace Security International, Inc. was honored in the Packaging Design Award – Professional Entry category. 
In its award-winning entry, the company said, “The newly updated mission statement inspired Mace Security International, ‘Empowering your world through safety and security.’ It’s important to us to offer the best safety and security products to our customers and that includes a design that reflects our stance.” 
The new packaging reduces PVC usage and provides the instructions for the product printed on the back of each pack instead of inserting a folded paper instruction pamphlet. This method is environmentally friendly and drastically decreases the company’s PVC footprint.
“We are thrilled to be recognized by the international design community for our packaging redesign program,” says John McCann, president and chief executive officer of Mace Security International, Inc. “Our team is doing a great job of supporting and driving our products through targeted strategic marketing, which includes innovative packaging concepts.”
Team members included in this award-winning project include lead designer Jessica Adanich, Bernie Graney, Bobbi Tonti, Eric Crawford, Patrick Barrett and Carl Smith. 
A’Design Award & Competition packaging designs nominees are voted on predetermined evaluation criteria to highlight only the very best packaging design works. Other winners in this category include 7UP’s Global Visual Identity System Redesign and Purina Cat Chow Packaging Design.
