McDonald’s rolls out new packaging designs | by Dorian Cioban


McDonald’s is starting strong in 2013 by unveiling a new set of freshly redesigned beverage cups and carry-out bags, but there’s a catch: the new designs contain a scannable QR code which, due to immensely growing popularity of smartphones enables users to more easily find our more information about the products they consume. Along with the scannable point of interest, the design of the package is oriented towards brand storytelling with appealing, trendy illustrations.

Kevin Newell, McDonald’s Chief Brand Officer stated that the new packaging is designed to enagage with
consumers in such way that it celebrates McDonald’s, as well as providing more information on nutritional values:

“Customers tell us they want to know more about the food they are eating and we want to make
that as easy as possible by putting this information right at their fingertips.” Seguir leyendo “McDonald’s rolls out new packaging designs | by Dorian Cioban”

Las 3 funciones del packaging | evenmk.com


packagingUna de las decisiones más importantes para una empresa es decidir cómo será el envase de sus productos. Es el momento clave para la empresa ya que se juega la imagen que tendrá el producto y la marca. Fundamental porque como decía un antiguo anuncio de colonia… en las distancias cortas es donde un envase se la juega.

Sí, en las distancias cortas. El producto estará en el lineal del supermercado o en el escaparate del comercio. Pero no estará solo, estará compitiendo con otros productos y otras marcas que buscan lo mismo: llamar tu atención e intentar destacar frente a la competencia (primer reto).

Can Neuromarketing Research Increase Sales?

Dr. A. K. Pradeep, Chief Executive Officer of NeuroFocus

Every new product launch, ad campaign or package design takes significant research, time and resources to ensure success, but not every launch is successful. Suffice it to say that guess work plays a part to determine: Will it grab attention? Will it be memorable? Will it engage emotionally? And most importantly, will it drive purchase intent?

Taking the guess work out of the equation prior to launch is a marketer’s dream, which is now a definable reality with quantifiable results. Just recently the notion was put to the test to see if neuroscience could be used to help a magazine sell more copies. And the results were enlightening.

Custom barcodes are perfect for companies that want to own their design and be sure no one else out there has the same thing. It also allows you to tie your barcode design directly into your brand identity, giving you limitless possibilities for creative tie-ins.

Case Studies:

elyon marshmallows custom vanity barcodes

To carry through the fun personality of Elyon® Marshmallow’s new “mallow” mascots, we developed a series of three custom Vanity barcodes for their packaging. The barcodes alone captured the imagination of designer bloggers and got the attention of national chain store buyers who are now carrying the products.

2. Sara Snacker™ Cookie Company


Sara Snacker™ cookies packaging had very little design space, consisting of simple clear plastic containers and labels. To add some personality to the back informational labels, we designed a barcode with a “bite” taken out of it. The fun barcode also reinforces the tongue-in-cheek tagline, “You Know You Want One!”. The newly packaged cookies got a lot of media attention including Snack of the Day on The Rachael Ray Show. They are sold in upscale stores like Zabars and Westside Market in NYC.
