Brand Packaging Design
“The packaging has only a few seconds to
stand out from the shelf, seduce ... and sell! "
My vision of
Whether physical or digital, packaging is at the heart of consumers daily experience, evolving in an environment saturated with signs.
Consumers keep on switching from brand to brand, in their quest for meaningful brands to justify their choices, resulting in being constantly presented with ever more complex dilemmas. I accompany you in designing packaging that carries genuine meaning and vectors of growth while developing the highest value added of the product / brand combination.
My working methods takes it roots in the "maieutics": the art of questioning allowing the birth of ideas and needs. My goal is to ensure that you are the bearer of your Packaging / Product strategy.
This specific approach avoids intellectual paralysis and ready-made answers. Dialogue is the pilar of this methodology, thanks to which it is possible to avoid certainties and abstract reasoning. The question-and-answer game with my clients makes it possible to avoid sterile discussions.
My values :
Make accessible what looks complex to handle
Design is first to serve product's performance
Always looking for a "WOW" effect that cultivates strong brand / product identity
Offer solutions that constantly adapt to the reality of the market
Be efficient and responsive
