When it comes to product packaging, captivating your customers’ attention is key. In a world filled with distractions, your packaging must stand out and be memorable. Imagine browsing the wine aisle at your local grocery store. If you’re not a wine enthusiast, how do you decide which bottle to buy over another? You probably grab the one with the most interesting or memorable label, which could be as simple as a bright unexpected color, a beautiful photo, a unique pattern, a humorous tagline, or the clever use a familiar face like Snoop Dogg or Martha Stewart featured on 19 Crimes wine.
That’s the power of package design. It grabs attention, sparks curiosity, and compels customers to explore what’s inside—even when a customer knows next to nothing about your brand.

Takeaway: Use visually striking packaging to captivate customers and differentiate your product from competitors. Don’t underestimate the influence of packaging design on sales potential.
Packaging design is not just about aesthetics; it plays a vital role in conveying the value and quality of your product. If you’ve ever owned an Apple product, you’ve seen this principle in action. The boxes are made of thick, durable cardboard and every item inside is nestled in its own compartment, carefully wrapped in a protective plastic coating. This premium packaging and attention to detail creates a sensory experience that enhances the perceived value of the product—and even the packaging itself. (Be honest: have you ever actually thrown away your iPhone box?)
But imagine if that same product came in a plain brown box, tossed among a bed of styrofoam peanuts in which you have to fish blindly for each item to ensure you don’t miss one before throwing the box away. It immediately creates doubt about the value and quality of the product inside.
The secret is to leverage your packaging design as a powerful communication tool.

(If you’ve never thrown away your iPhone box then the answer is yes—yes you have!) That’s because good design and consistency in packaging sparks an emotional response that builds memorability. And people are 94% more likely to choose brands they emotionally connect with.
Think about it: If Lindsey Beharry Design Co. ever decided to branch into the coffee market, package design that’s consistent with this brand would help you make an instant connection between the design company and the coffee brand despite being in completely unrelated markets.
On the flip side, inconsistent packaging design can dilute your brand identity and confuse customers. When they’re confused, you lose the sale and your customer’s loyalty to a product that is more memorable and more clearly and consistently communicates its value and benefits.
