Carefully and meticulously design sell not just the product but the company itself. It represents what you and your biscuits, cookies or snacks are all about. There is whole science behind choosing the right colours, depending on what do you think is most appealing to your customer.
Good packaging design even sets the expectation for the price point of your product. We make assumptions on a product’s price point before we see a price tag.

Some are classics while other follow trends, but one thing is agreed upon – the packaging should remain simple so the customers could get the information they want quickly and clearly. You have only a few seconds before their eye wanders to the next product.
