Innovation

Insight. Inspiration. Innovation.

Great packaging ideas start with consumers.

Their lifestyles and preferences provide the insight that inspires our creative teams.

We have a long history of bringing innovation to our customers and our industry. And innovative ideas continue to drive our business today.

Packaging Innovation

Our Innovation Process

Using a collaborative and iterative approach, we filter ideas through a series of design phases and evaluation criteria
– a stage gate process, if you will. By merging your stage gate processes along the way, we can accelerate the development process and create breakthrough packaging ideas.

Research

To add value to your brand promise, first, we need to understand your customers. Where they live. Where and how they shop. How they spend their leisure time. Their hopes and aspirations. We also review and understand your manufacturing processes.

Creative Design

Next, our team of structural designers starts building a solution inspired by the consumer insights. We recognize that adding functional benefits can change the relationship with your customers. Whether we add a handle where there was none before, or change the way your product is placed on the pantry or refrigerator shelf, changes will impact how consumers emotionally connect with your product at every touch point.
