Product packaging is important since it’s the first thing customers see and can make all the difference in them buying your product or not. Labeling and packaging is everywhere and because there’s so much competition out there, it’s important that you make yours stand out. People are visual creatures, so their eyes are naturally drawn to visually appealing packaging, which they are more likely to purchase. And like any other industry, there are certain trends that the industry sees each year. Here are some label and packaging design trends for 2018:
Minimalist Design Labels and Packaging
Sometimes less is more. Minimalist design is a huge trend at the moment within the industry. Even though some might call it primitive, going for simplicity can help customers access their intuitive side. The only hard part about these sorts of flexible packaging is finding signs and symbols that everyone can relate to. But once you do find it, you’ll be able to send a message with practically no words at all!
Pastel colors are having a moment in a number of creative industries, including packaging. The use of such feminine and calming package design are everywhere these days, speaking to a person’s softer side. If you want to give customers a candid and warm feel, labels and packages in pastel colors will intrigue buyers.
Some companies want to send a clear and concise message in their packaging and right now big words is a hot trend in the industry. Using bold, big print can send a clear message about your product, just as long as it’s in a readable font.
Everyone loves to doodle, and this sort of art is taking over the packaging industry. Consumers are attracted to it because it’s fun and happy, making them remember times when they were kids and doodling. Doodles on projects are whimsical and cartoonish, making them nostalgic to customers.
Lately, photography has been picking up steam in the label and packaging niche and it’s really no surprise since it’s been lined to design for a long time. When a product showcases a powerful photo, it has the ability to cause people to stop and pause to see what’s going on, enticing them to find out more about your product.
