All Wrapped Up
An international guide to award winning packaging design
The field of package design never ceases to expand and innovate, making it one of the most vibrant, competitive, and fast-evolving areas in design today. It is influenced by various factors such as the consumer’s requirements, the ever-increasing marketing demands, evolving environmental policies, and the practice of adhering to the context of cultural aspects and diversity. By developing at such a demanding and rapid pace, package design encompasses many different elements and specialists, including designers, service providers, material suppliers, and printers. As a result, it has become a universe in itself.
Pentawards has capitalized on this to create the most dynamic and diverse award in the field, which has existed for 15 years. The Pentawards sets a global benchmark for quality each year by scouting the area’s cleverest and most eclectic designs. The Package Design Book – Volume 2 presents winners from the past decade in celebrating packaging as a kaleidoscopic art form. It showcases not only the new and unexpected developments but also a clear vision of the evolution of the entire industry, especially in the areas of new materials and sustainability.
Pentawards is the leading worldwide network dedicated to packaging design. Committed to recognizing excellence in design and providing a source of inspiration, Pentawards connects the global packaging design community through their annual competition, conferences and networking events.
