The challenge

Regaining autonomy over the packaging design process

For quite some time Loacker was keen to implement a complete packaging lifecycle management process, from the art layout onwards.

Up until four years ago, Loacker made its packaging renderings with Adobe® Photoshop® or outsourced them to multiple agencies.


The great thing about Studio is that it is entirely focused on packaging and the outputs are perfect, from a technical point of view as well as for marketing and other purposes.

The solution

3D packaging renders in five minutes

After Andrea Canale, Loacker’s Graphic Arts Director, tried Esko Studio in his spare time, he was convinced that this 3D packaging design software was the perfect solution for Loacker.

Studio is a unique set of tools for 3D packaging design made specifically for packaging artwork professionals. The software takes away the need for physical mock-ups.

The benefits

Products that look as good as they taste

Instead of going to six or seven different agencies to obtain packaging renderings, Loacker’s graphic designing team produces all of the packaging renderings in five minutes in Studio.

The highly realistic renders also serve retail and marketing purposes after approval. Previously, pack shots could only be completed once the packaging was completely finalized – at which point a professional photographer would be brought in. Studio removes the need for this.

Loacker noticed Studio’s benefits beyond the designing phase:

  • highly realistic renders serve marketing purposes
  • huge time savings and significant cost savings
  • no need for physical mock-ups or pack shots outsourced to multiple agencies
