The first interaction that consumers have with a brand is through the product packaging. As consumers become increasingly discerning about authenticity and transparency of ingredients as well as the ethical and environmental credentials of the brands they choose, finding creative and engaging ways to convey brand purpose and philosophy through packaging design is now a top priority. In this session, expert speakers will discuss how brand packaging can help build trust and gain consumer loyalty, exploring what packaging looks like for the health and environmentally conscious consumer.
