It’s well-acknowledged that packaging that stands out on a crowded shelf is an essential part of building and keeping a customer base. However, as the world continues to move to a computer screen to shop, the digital rendering of a product needs to work just as well. Our webinar will cover the digitalization of packaging, what online consumers look for on a package and how design theory works on a computer screen.

Learning objectives:

  • Evaluating packaging trends and how they play a role in F&B packaging.

  • Understanding the importance of packaging beyond grocery store shelves and how the online world has affected the design of F&B products.

  • Developing a sense of which designs are conducive for different types of packaging (plastic, aluminum, glass, boxes, bags, etc.) and how a packaging design can make or break a company.

Kirk Visola
Creative Director, Mind The Font

I am a major fan of comic books (hence the Batman mug) that loves to think inside the box.

Outside of being inundated with new movies every year (which is AMAZING to me), comics taught me how to view imagery, type, composition, hierarchy, color, and most importantly, work within a confined area like a box. And, as shown by comics, there are myriad options that can be done inside that box.

However, it wasn’t until my second year at the local JC that I enrolled in design classes and saw that career path was possible.

I went on to attend design classes at San Jose State University and never looked back.

Since then, my life has been spent creating compelling and innovative design solutions, independently and in the corporate environment. 

I love simple and clean design, great coffee, delicious cocktails, and taking long walks through my favorite video games. I am also a creator and a conceptor, passionate about any job I do.
