50 Packaging Designs That Pack A Punch


There is an old adage that taught us: “Don’t judge a book by it’s cover.” but in a world where there are thousands of competitors for any one specific product, this does not hold true. We are raised in a society, where generally, looks are often perceived as most important and this instance, it holds true.

Consumers generally tend to automatically go for a product where the packaging is most intriguing or appealing. Designers are now thinking outside of the box to make their products stand out the most. For our designers, to help you we’ve picked 50 of the best packaging designs we’ve seen. That stand out and make you want to grab the product.

The important aspects of the following designs it to notice the following:

    I love the earbuds design..but the circle mouth almost makes it look like a blow up doll lol..

    WOW.. talk about eye candy. I really like the ones that are more “everyday use” sort of things. How cool would it be to open up your spice drawer and see ones like #33.. or go to change a light bulb like the Gauss packaging? I would have to think twice about throwing away those light bulb containers. Great post!

    • jeprie at 8:11 am

    I sometimes find myself wondering if designers actually think about what they’re creating and why they’re doing the things they are. Personally I find some of these designs to be garish and almost obnoxious. All that aside though, the one I really have to wonder about is the FTD box. Is it supposed to resemble a casket? Because grandma dying isn’t exactly a major selling point for me.

    Very very nice collection. I wish I get a project to make something like this. I guess I need to market my self into that crowd first.

    The problem is, that some of these things I can’t really tell exactly what they are from the packaging. An important part of mechandise, especially in things that one could find in a grocery store is getting impulse buys. That’s not going to happen if people can’t instantly figure out exactly what you’re selling.

    A Great Selection … some hot and others, well, not so. The Kleenex one is consistent while changing the graphics, though the Doritos one is one person’s use of a tough material being used in a gentle way. Feel It looks to be a winner in my book, great simplicity … good looks … tactile!
