Method Process

We prioritize tried and tested success criteria to make sure we progress pack designs that deliver your strategic aims. Our recommendations reflect the role that packaging plays in driving sales opportunities at each moment of truth, as well as specific objectives driving the (re)design.

ATTRACT: Capture attention in store and communicate key messages effectively

  • Competitive standout (with options for at fixture shopping exercises)
  • On pack messaging hierarchy and prominence via Visual Attention Software(3M VASTM) – clever artificial intelligence that identifies pack hotspots and the effectiveness of on pack communication for capturing attention

CONVINCE: Encourage purchase

  • Establish the degree to which a pack drives purchase consideration amongst your target audience

DELIVER: Enhance brand positioning and communicate product benefits

  • Supporting metrics and diagnostics facilitate further packaging optimization if required
  • Analysis typically focuses on performance vs. a benchmark (Current pack or Competitor) and normative guidance
Im Packt Output

Your product packaging needs to connect with shoppers instantly, and at a deeper level. So we use indirect tools to access effectiveness.

  • Principles of behavioral economics – observing consumer behavior and pack design impact, rather than relying on direct questions and rational responses
  • Delve beyond superficial appeal to understand what packaging attributes really mean to consumers and how they relate back to your FMCG brand positioning
  • Get the full picture – we recognize that your packaging plays multiple roles, so our holistic assessment uncovers performance across each of them
  • Competitive context ensures we focus on driving advantages and distinction in ways that are central to your brand vs its competitors
