PACKAGING DESIGN 101

From types of packaging to how to design packaging that converts to a purchase, this primer has you covered. Packaging has always needed to perform four fundamental jobs: protect, attract, inform, and delight. But now it needs to achieve these functions both in-store and online, and ideally, it’s also environmentally friendly. In this course, Vicki Strull will teach you to think like a shopper and design accordingly. She will also discuss how things like the unboxing experience and how a package’s ‘second life’ can enhance the customer experience and encourage repeat purchases.

  • Tuition: $249
  • Launch Date: Fall 2022
  • Duration: 90 minutes
  • Instructor: Vicki Strull
