Even in the best of times, makers, marketers and sellers are challenged as never before to tell their story and close the deal. Think distraction, fragmentation, information overload, media clutter, global competition, economic dislocation, and retail disruption. Package design and related disciplines are increasingly making the difference in communicating the message, advancing the brand, and influencing the purchasing decision.
The outstanding work showcased this year – from over 200 designers and producers – attests to the reality that is 2020. The annual competition celebrates beauty and style, of course, but even more important, the power of deliberate design to forge an emotional link with customers.
