Does packaging design still matter in an online world?

Author: Daniel Porter

“What’s the point of this?” a friend asked me recently – brandishing the cardboard sleeve she’d just removed from a four-pack of yoghurts. “It’s just totally unnecessary, a complete waste.”

“If it looks good on the shelf, I’ll look good too” – why luxury packaging is on the rise in the food and beverage industry

Author: Rianna Julian

Luxury packaging is becoming a force to be reckoned with. As consumerism continues to be taken over by health crazes and a need to ‘look good’, there is continued huge potential in the food and beverage sector to invest in luxury packaging. I for one am guilty of buying a Fortnum and Mason loose tea set, over your regular box of 80 teabags, purely on the basis that the packaging was prettier… I didn’t even think twice about the price.

CATS launched a Kickstarter campaign back in February 2016 to raise money to replace sixty-eight adverts in Clapham Common station with photos of cats. Not cat food, or veterinary care, just cats. Sounds ridiculous right? But they managed to get over 700 backers raising just over £23,000.

Author: Michael Grass

With the Luxury Packaging Awards set to once again dazzle at the Grosvenor House Hotel tonight in London, I’ve had luxury packaging a lot on my mind lately and thought the best way to channel this glossy stream of consciousness was to pour my thoughts into a blog. But rather than wax lyrical about the latest trends and innovations in this glamorous sector, I was inspired to ponder on a more fascinating concept: what is it that makes some packaging so iconic?

The 3 R’s: Reuse, Recycle & Rio

Author: Rianna Julian

Brazil has had to deal with a lot of negative press surrounding it being able to successfully deliver the Olympic and Paralympic games this year. With the Olympics now over and the Paralympics just about to commence, whatever you think about the games’ organisation overall, they do appear to have been especially successful in the area of sustainability.
