Packaging's Power Trio: Design, Manufacturing and Budgets
Evelio Mattos, Creative Director, FORMA Structural Packaging & Design Packaging, Inc.

Innovation in packaging is no longer more is more, more foil, more materials, more layers. Today’s innovation revolves around efficiencies, systems, hash tagged user experiences, and budgetary transparency. From visual design to structural packaging, innovations come at a cost in time, or money, or both! Learn how to packaging’s structural design, visual design, and manufacturing phases can work together to deliver long lasting returns with the real-world expectations in place.

Together we’ll uncover: 

1) How to build the right packaging team, internally and externally

2) What questions to ask, and what questions you need to be prepared to answer

3) What are the metrics that matter

Packaging has the power to build brands with an arsenal of materials, innovative structures, and precision crafted unboxing experiences. Join Evelio Mattos, Creative Director of Design Packaging, and FORMA Structural Packaging in this in-depth conversation that will make you think twice about the power of packaging.
