You have 2.6 seconds to persuade a consumer to pick your product up off the shelf. Thanks to the proliferation of products available at retail, you have to get their attention – and fast. If you want to make money, it’s imperative that you fulfill the consumer’s wants and needs. But, you have to get their attention first!
Understanding and cultivating the consumer is an ongoing task. Consumer preferences can change on a whim. When it comes to product packaging, it’s important to understand the mindset behind consumers’ decisions. Each year new trends move into the foreground.
