Packaging Design Process

Making a box can be relatively simple. However, creating a brand packaging design that protects your product, grabs the attention of your customer, leaves them with a great brand experience and fits within your budget involves:



We begin our work with you to figure out what we need to do to find a suitable solution to achieve your goals. We will get aligned by listening and asking questions to gain a mutual understanding to create a project brief which will include a statement of work, cost estimate, and the estimated timing to get you the optimal brand packaging design.



We will develop a packaging design concept and walk you through the proposed solution. Based on that, we will provide you with a physical mockup to review and provide any final feedback. Once finalized we will proceed to test the concept.


We will perform quality assurance and validation testing to verify that your product packaging design will meet industry-standard safety and performance objectives. If there are adjustments to be made, we will modify the packaging design to ensure protection and deliverability.


Once we have qualified the package design, we will provide you with production-ready CAD files, proposed material specifications, a container load plan report, a test report summary with photos, and package assembly instructions. With these, you will be able to give your packaging supplier the necessary elements to produce the desired packaging design.
