A product with your name on it, isn’t it great?

Advertising always had to collaborate with artists to think, imagine and produce communication visuals.

Let’s discover the mechanism of collaborators between brands and artists… when packaging is a piece of art!

Eloïse COHEN, Editor in chief of and Marketing
Lisa MCGARRY, Co-founder, MOBEEFOX
With a digital expert

You want to buy a product but you do not have enough information on its content, its origin or its taste?
It is now possible thanks to a smartphone by flashing the code on the packaging to have all these information. A growing trend enabling consumers’ trust in products they buy, but also, enabling consumers to go beyond, because digitalisation of packaging is only a small step in digital transformation as a whole…

Monique LARGE, Innovation Design Adviser, POLLENCONSULTING

New materials, printing techniques and digitalisation… the packaging is continuously evolving to seduce the consumer. This packaging experience goes beyond physical point of sale, as reflected in social media conversations. What are the realisations the most discussed and why? Between useless, what are the innovations that make sense for the final consumer? Vice President, Global Package Design, CLINIQUE 

10.45 am Real media in sales outlets: when packaging creates the event by distinguishing itself from a very-competitive segment


Roundtable moderated by Henri SAPORTA, Editor in Chief, EMBALLAGES MAGAZINE
Aurélie JUILLARD, Creative studio manager, MICHEL ET AUGUSTIN
Constance GUILBERT, Graphic designer, MICHEL ET AUGUSTIN 

As its name suggests, promotional packaging leans on an event or a festive season. But it can also lean on a brand speech and become a trademark…
Real communication and interaction vector, these packagings are distinguishing and give messages to react and participate to the adventure!
With a simple graphic design, an offbeat logo or a surprising and unexpected colour with regard to other brands, packaging is solely an evident and effective media as shown by troublemakers of MICHEL ET AUGUSTIN, a black packaging of a milk cartonLA LAITERIE LESFAYESor even DIDIER COSSON DESIGN of which creations are used every single day by millions of consumers.

13.30 pm How the packaging can adapt to a new paradigm of an increased and dematerialised business?  

Jean-Marc MEGNIN, Expert and Analyst in commerce prospective, SHOPPERMIND

Last minute communication relays, packaging has always be the crucial element in what Procter & Gamble call “the First Moment of Truth” … taking charge of the product and purchasing decision. But now the match between a consumer and the product does not necessarily take place in sales point but via a device more and more mobile, or an application such as Amazon Prime Now or Drive-thru brands. The packaging has to adapt to this new change and ask itself whether digital is a constraint or an opportunity.

Philippe DEVISMES, Expert in Packaging Design and General Manager of Diadem / Groupe Team créatif

Last vector image at the moment of purchase, the packaging has to reinforce the personality and the values of the brand… How is it seen by the client? What is the consumer’s vision and perception when she chooses her product?
