Packaging Design

Getting your products to jump off the shelf into shopping carts since 1986

What do we do best.

New or existing ranges need care and attention to attract the right buyers... We work with all packaging types from bottles and tins to boxes, cartons and pouches.

Our client's range from national food brands to international cosmetics ranges.  We understand the need to work within brand guidelines, monitor competitors for new ideas, offers and USPs.  Our Account Managers and creative team know how to work with you to produce items to conform to all regulators and supermarket restrictions.

Packaging Research

Analysing design and packaging material trends is crucial to ensuring we position your products to stand out from competitors. 

We can fully audit your shelf space in all supermarkets and come up with alternatives to ensure maximum exposure.


Packaging Design

We have a creative studio that houses some of the best industry knowledge under one roof.  Our Account Managers and designers have worked on all sizes of projects and coupled with our photo studio, we are able to deliver a range of materials anyone would be happy to pick off a shelf.  

Followed up by our print management team, we can help you source the best prices and turnarounds to supply your packaging. 


Packaging Workflow

Our clients have access to the same workflow tools as our design team. Sign in, set up a project, check our progress, comment on changes, suggest edits and amendments, be part of our team to ensure no delay in the design process for your packaging.

Let's work together using on-the-fly remote access proofing tools to make changes together wherever you are in the world. 


A change of packaging can increase your sales

We work with them all and a few more than you might realise.  We have NDA's with over 30% of our clients and a good proportion of our work come from agencies looking for our specialist in-house skill sets.

You may have the best product on the market. But if the packaging is not enticing, no-one will be picking it up off the shelf regardless of the price point. We help gain marketshare, increase value proposition and help launch products to all shapes and sizes.
