Our Working Process

We deliver services across the entire packaging launch process for your brands, from concept (3D renderings or printed prototypes) and creative design through to artwork, pre-press and legal sign-off.

Listening to clients and seeking out the key terms, words or feelings is the first part in developing packaging fast and what the client wants.

Brainstorming

We don’t brainstorm, we gather all the information from a client, discuss and research the market and then use our skills to develop award winning packaging. Well, perhaps a little brainstorming then.

DEVELOPMENT

 The fun part- After we submit design options to a client, we develop the brand further making numerous changes and small tweaks. Once the client falls in love with the design we then make 3D renderings and full printed prototypes.

Testing

 Most agency will not do this, but without it, your packaging can fail in the market place. We test packaging to A.S.T.M., U.L., N.S.T.A. requirements to ensure everything goes well.

Manufacturing

We can then get you the costing, by sourcing the packaging from anywhere in the world. Our team in China, Canada and the UK can help. This is what makes us more then just a design agency.
