FEATURE | AMERICAN PACKAGE DESIGN AWARDS
PACKAGING, POP AND THE INSTORE EXPERIENCE
Marketers are challenged as never before to convey their message to differentiate themselves and their products. Think visual clutter, think information overload, think eroding brand loyalty, think global competition. This newest of our three major competitions focuses on package design and instore graphics as increasingly critical difference-makers at the point of sale. This year, we reviewed more than a thousand entries, of which less than one in five are showcased here. This showcase makes for an informative, inspirational and lively read. And if looking at these materials is not just plain fun, we don’t know what is!
