Creating and producing packaging and its artwork for consumer products has become an increasingly complex process.
The number of functions of packaging has grown and the number of stakeholders in the process has grown accordingly. Packaging increasingly uses more complex shapes and graphics for several reasons; because there is a real need, because it can create a competitive advantage at the store shelf and sometimes simply because it's possible. Naturally that means that packaging development becomes more complex as well. Boost your packaging design process with dedicated solutions!
The continually increasing number of regulations affecting consumer products (font sizes, regulated tables & symbols...) put extra pressure on an industry that is looking to innovate the way packaging is produced. The packaging process has to take international rules and guidelines into account.
