An innovative water vest is this year’s Diamond Award winner in the 2017 Dupont Awards for Packaging Innovation. The FritzTM Water Vest from Solutions Inc., utilizes current packaging technologies, creating a product that is potentially life changing to millions around the world.

The vest allows users to carry up to 20lb of water safely and hygienically with the weight evenly distributed across the chest and back.

The multi layer nylon structure provides a robust material suitable for rough terrain and multiple uses in dry and rugged environments.

Retail packaging mistakes you should avoid!

28/06/2017

Approximately 70% of all purchasing decisions aren’t made until a customer is actually inside the shop.  A big part of those decisions is packaging.  You could have the best product in the world, but if the packaging isn’t appealing you won’t sell your product.

The design and look of your packaging is therefore imperative to the success of your product and you need to do everything you can to make sure it’s the best that it can be.

Here are a few mistakes  you should avoid:

  • Not designing for your target customer

Whether it’s bespoke printed packaging or industrial packaging, you’re not designing for your boss,  you’re doing it for your target customer.  Every packaging design must be produced with the customer in mind and nobody else.  If the packaging isn’t convenient and appealing to your ideal customers you are going to have difficulty selling products.
