“Oh no, we forgot to design the fixture and now our packaging looks like an ironic joke.”

“Oh no, we forgot to design the fixture and now our packaging looks like an ironic joke.”

No amount of packaging design will convey the desired message if the fixture looks bad. Avoid this problem by thinking about EVERYTHING that the shopper can see when they encounter your brand. The more exaggerated your packaging and branding, the more this applies. Small retailers, in particular, really need your help. Help them to make your brand look better. Don’t just say ‘wow’ on pack and hope for the best.
