Packaging Structural Design

Structural packaging design plays a crucial role in the safe delivery of products, your brand’s perception and the end user’s product experience. Protect your brand’s reputation with innovative and sustainable packaging designs.

Our structural design team will work with you to create impactful, efficient packaging solutions.

To ensure package integrity, we test our packaging in our ISTA 6 test lab using compression, vibration and incline tests.


What Is Structural Packaging Design?

Structural packaging design — or physical packaging enhancement — refers to the industrial design of a product’s packaging, including its shape, materials and imagery. Exceptional structural packaging design differentiates your products from your competitors and provides a host of benefits to the customer.

Why Is the Structural Design of a Package Important?

The structural design of a package protects your products, demonstrates brand identity and provides a memorable unboxing experience for customers in several ways:

  • Structural integrity: Packages too large or small could damage products during transit. Your packaging’s design should custom-fit your products to ensure they arrive undamaged and intact.
  • Brand identity: Design evokes emotion and builds brand loyalty. Branded packaging makes your products stand out from competitors’ products and demonstrates your brand’s values in an unforgettable, beautiful way.
  • Memorability: Celebrate seasonal or promotional products with custom packaging designs. A unique packaging design highlights the importance of a product and offers a memorable unboxing experience for your customers.
