Packaging has always been a means of communicating a brand’s value proposition — who your product is for and why it’s better and different than anything else on the market today. But in today’s increasingly competitive consumer product landscape, the critical need to stand out is inspiring marketers to push the boundaries of design in new and unexpected ways. Based on what we’re seeing from design projects on our global platform, here are five new trends that will dominate packaging design in 2020 and beyond.
In this issue of Packaging Strategies we have the annual Packaging Outlook, covering flexible and rigid plastics, glass, metal cans, paperboard and corrugated, as well as packaging machinery & automation and packaging design. Also covered is the trend of less is more in beverage branding, how dispensers can make or break a brand experience, one conveying company that’s setting the bar in vertical farming, a dairy manufacturer that moved to plant-based products and more. Enjoy!
