The Top 3 Elements Of Successful Packaging - Plus, The 30 Best Package Design Agencies, According To DesignRush

72 percent of consumers believe that product package designs influence their purchasing decisions. DesignRush uncovered the top package design elements and the top 30 package design agencies of 2019.

NEW YORK, April 29, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- A 2018 study found that upwards of 72 percent of consumers say that product packaging influences their purchasing choices. These include which products they purchase, how often they complete purchases, which brands they develop loyalty to, and more.

DesignRush.com, a B2B marketplace connecting brands with agencies, discovered the three best package design elements that drive increased sales.

The top 3 package design elements of 2019 are:

1. Packaging Materials

The materials used to package a product should be durable for any necessary containments or shipping, but still appeal to consumers. Leading package design agencies often conduct ergonomic studies to understand how consumers open products and interact with the packaging in order to compete in the market.

2. Creative Functionality

Package designs need to be beautiful and aesthetically pleasing in order to capture consumers on the shelves or on social media. However, they also need to remain functional and toe that line. After all, it only takes 7 seconds for consumers to judge a product.

3. Branding

Brands receive up to 4 times more market visibility when they are presented consistently. Therefore, incorporating cohesive branding elements on your package designs are key to improving brand awareness and loyalty. Incorporate branded colors, logos, messaging, shapes and aesthetics across all package designs.

"Emerging brands often underestimate the power of packaging," says DesignRush Founder and Executive Director Gabriel Shaoolian. "However, even in the age of eCommerce, well-thought-out and properly branded package designs can drastically improve brand awareness and capture valuable consumers."

DesignRush's Agency Listing section features the top local and global packaging design companies. The top package design agencies include:
