We found some great multi-functional packaging ideas from around the world, which are showcased below.
Designing packaging for your product can be a fun and imaginative experience. Think about if your packaging can become multi-functional for your product.
When people buy your product, do they need to purchase another product alongside it? (eg like a clothes hanger or labels) if so, think about how you can incorporate that into your packaging design and your customers will love you for it!
You can even brand the accompanying, useful product, so your client will remember who they purchased from, and it can even become a conversation piece online (eg on Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook - or at your home or workplace) - so take advantage and have your logo and contact details on the packaging to ensure you get recognition!
Discuss with your Graphic or Packaging Designer about options - or if you're stuck on ideas but would really like to make your packaging multi-functional, you could even get in touch with a Marketing Agency, who might be able to think up creative ideas on what you can do, and how you can achieve it.
Unique packaging can make you stand out from the crowd and from your competitors, which is all important to winning those sales!
