How is the Changing Retail Environment Affecting Branding and Packaging?

In today’s omni-channel world, customization aligned with retail context is critical. For example, design can meet shopper needs in the club channel or e-commerce differently than in mass retail within a single brand system.

The intersection of brick and mortar with digital commerce is creating opportunities for brands to connect with consumers in new ways. At the same time, it’s creating new demands on design and packaging. The digital world and mobile first interaction with brands and products demands a new level of simplicity and clarity of message. Design needs stopping power to connect as a consumer scrolls, and communicate clearly in less time than ever before. Brands that recognize and act on this seamlessly benefit from better communication on-pack in the traditional retail landscapes as well.

 

As consumers adapt and brands continue to evolve to meet their changing needs in our socially distanced “new normal” the digital+physical relationship and ability to evolve quickly are more important than ever.
Making the right connections on shelf and online is critical to success.
