The Package Design Book
All wrapped up
An international guide to contemporary packaging design
Packaging is a highly underrated art form. As the first thing a consumer sees when looking at a product, the packaging can make or break a sale. Every year, the Pentawards celebrate the art of the package by presenting awards to designs from around the world. Designers compete in five main categories—beverages, food, body, luxury, and other markets—and no fewer than 44 sub-categories.
Featuring a selection of over 400 works from 39 countries, this book brings together all the Pentawards winners from 2009 and 2010 plus the main winners from 2008, providing a vivid demonstration of creativity in every form of packaging. Readers will also discover what drives design industry leaders and agencies behind these creations which are so much part of our everyday lives. This well of inspiration is not just aimed at design and marketing professionals but anyone with an interest in the creative process of packaging.
Pentawards is the first and only worldwide competition dedicated to packaging design in all its forms, open to anyone associated with its creation and/or marketing. Aside from prize-giving, Pentawards’ mission is the worldwide promotion of packaging design among companies, media, economic and political authorities, and the general public.
