Packaging / Point of Sale Design: Catch Eyes. Hit Hot Buttons.

Catching the eye of the customer in extremely busy marketplaces is the key to effective packaging and point of sale materials. Many times packaging must appeal to customers at two levels — first, attracting the retail buyer bombarded with products competing for shelf space; second, selling to the end-user/consumer overwhelmed with an avalanche of goods in-store. Great packaging design must hit the hot buttons of these two audiences. Through the astute use of color (for food packaging in particular), exciting visuals and a keen understanding of the sales environment, Guy With Glasses packaging has found its way into thousands of shopping carts.

Funny Face Retail Packaging Design

This package design for flavored dried cranberries includes Funny Face licensed characters. The characters appeal to young people (my daughter loves them) and there are prominent callouts that appeal to adult concerns:

Goodwives Hors D'oeuvres Retail Packaging

It's a great thing to use graphic design experience to solve a huge problem for a client. Goodwives Hors D'oeuvres has 26+ product offerings. Many are produced to order on short deadline. They produce large volumes of some products and small volumes of others.

A good designer always looks for ways to improve the usefulness of a project. This shoe tag design not only highlights the Duracourt Plus outsole compound but also illustrates the category of footwear.

Appetite stimulation is a great way to sell food. Delicious-looking product images are an important design feature of this packaging line for frozen seafood products. Other design components convey the premium nature of the product.

Paradise Meadow Sweetened Dried Cranberries Packaging Design

Retail cranberries food package design

The design problem for this package was to visualize organic sweetened dried cranberries in an attractive way. The solution includes natural colors and texture, and an illustration that suggests the cranberry bog. The USDA Organic seal is prominently displayed.

Cool Dog Foil Wrappers Design

Cool Dog ice cream package design

Cool Dog, Inc. needed a cool design for their cool product. Cool Dogs are an ice cream hot dog — the "roll" is sponge cake. The design goals include grabbing the eye in a crowded freezer case and presenting the product in a fun way.

When you don't have time for photography and need to visualize "Cranberry Cactus", where do you find a stock photo or illustration? You won't be able to — that's why it pays to work with a freelance designer who can illustrate. 

Joseph's Pasta Retail Bag Design

Joseph's Pasta is an innovator in production of the highest quality filled pasta products. Most products of this type contain unrecognizable mush. Joseph's developed special equipment to allow "chunky" filling to be used.

Crescent Canyon All Natural Package Design

Crescent Canyon Cuisine Packaging

These entrée products have no additives and so does the design. The design says what's necessary without being obtrusive and lets the appetizing product photography take center stage.

Decas Point of Sale Display Design

Cranberry point of sale display design

This point of sale display makes for easy logistics. The display base and shipping boxes have a universal "cranberry" design, and headers are designed for individual products. Shown here are two completely different headers that both look at home on the universal base.

Nantucket Supreme Seafood Appetizer Packaging

Bold design and appetizing product photography combine to make this packaging line pop out of the freezer case. A color code system distinguishes the varieties. The design has been extremely successful with store buyers and consumers.
