Is your brand’s packaging design appealing to your target audience? Your packaging displays more than just the product: it conveys your brand values, style, and what results the customer can anticipate.
So how do you design packaging that aligns with your brand? In the health and beauty industry, customers seek products that offer results and a distinctive experience. To attract them, it’s crucial for customers to know what experience and results they can expect from your brand from the beginning.
Eye-catching packaging design
Have you been to a beauty section of a department store? You’ll notice that the lighting is bright, enhancing the beauty shopping experience. This brightness can also enhance your branding when combined with well-designed packaging.
Glossy and matte finishes for product packaging can both be eye-catching, but they will have different visual impacts on customers. This is one of the initial decisions you can make when creating your product packaging.
Matte vs. gloss
The choice between matte and gloss depends on your brand’s feel. Gloss works well for a wide range of health and beauty products and gives off a fresh and sophisticated feel. On the other hand, matte finishes exude a luxurious high-end vibe and are particularly effective when paired with embossed or metallic logos and lettering, creating an eye-catching and captivating textural contrast.
However, glossy finishes tend to appear “fresher” on store shelves. Gloss lamination repels dust and is ideal for bright lighting. Consider where your potential customers will first interact with your brand. Will they pick it up from a store shelf or receive a mailer package for an unboxing experience? The right lamination can either complement or detract from your brand image and product cohesiveness is crucial.
Ultimately, your goal is to make brand recognizable. Developing a cohesive branding mood board or theme brings all your products under the same banner, your company. Cohesiveness appeals to consumers for various reasons. They prefer a clean and harmonious appearance in their health and beauty routines. You also want customers to associate your brand with products they haven’t tried yet. A strong brand image conveys a reliable image to your customers.
Effective packaging design protects your products at every stage, from production to the customer’s possession. When selecting the details for health and beauty product packaging, consider its journey from the shelf to the customer’s home. Besides maintaining the product’s appearance, packaging serves the important role of protecting the contents.
Marketing to potential customers
Are you effectively reaching your target market? Many consumers are passionate about ethical considerations in the health and beauty industry, and if these align with your brand values, they should be prominently featured in your packaging design.
Products that are cruelty-free, vegan, sensitive skin, and organic are in high demand, as customers with these preferences tend to only buy products that meet these standards. By prominently displaying your brand’s cruelty-free status, you not only reinforce your brand values but also attract new customers looking for these types of products.
Health and beauty product packages and labels are subject to many FDA regulations. An effective product packaging design balances both practical considerations, such as shipping and compliance with regulations, with design elements that resonate with your customers.
