As many of you know, I have a small obsession with packaging design. It is so intriguing! If you think about it, what really catches your attention? I bet you haven’t thought about it. How do you design packaging that will stand out on a shelf of 100s, maybe 1000s of products? You’ve only got one shot to get your audience’s attention in a store and if you design doesn’t stand out then that is business you’ve lost… in less than a second. I love it!
My favorite website, thus far, for packaging design is Packaging of the World. I go on this site every now and then to see what kind of inspiration is out there. This site is awesome because it features packaging from around the world and there is nothing better to see all kinds of creative minds at work.
Today I found these designs. Click the images for a link to the design.
If you have any other good packaging design sites I would love to hear about them!
