Question: Can your product survive without a brilliant marketing solution?
Answer: Theoretically – yes. Practically – hardly.
Marketing was invented in order for people to promote and endorse their products so that they could gain a higher income. Brilliant marketing was designed in order for manufacturers to win the market and surpass their competitors. The most obvious tool that helps you to achieve this goal is an outstanding (and quite often rather expensive) advertising. However, advertising is only a temporary solution; a permanent one would be a successful packaging design. Therefore, DesignContest wants you to meet 5 examples of creative packaging designs that literally make you want to look inside the box.
