Consumers now use their smart phones in store to research products for attributes, quality and price. Retailers are moving forward with new display and sound technologies that are now making their way on to the retail floor. The shopping aisle is becoming more and more electronic (interactive). This opens up new opportunities for marketers and retailers to communicate with consumers on many levels, encouraging them to pick up that package and put it in their cart.
This workshop-based packaging design course explains the tools and addresses the nuances of designing for optimization vs. reduction; clarifies the environmental impact of both; focuses on sustainable optimization of recovery and reduction of packaging; packaging best practices for food waste reduction and designing for internet retailing.
