How packaging designs deliver brand before beauty
How packaging designs deliver brand before beauty By Ted Mininni in Packaging Design on December 06, 2014 I’m constantly struck by the plethora of beautiful consumer product packaging on retail shelves. Much of it is artistic, some over the top or conversely, minimalistic, whimsical and even witty. It’s admirable if packaging was all about “art for art’s sake,” but it isn’t, is it? Yet, artsy packaging lights up the blogosphere among designers, marketers and brand managers. Some of it even wins awards There’s nothing wrong with admiring beauty but that doesn’t necessarily translate to selling branded product. To understand what I mean, go into a food store, toy store, body care shop or any store for that matter and step back from the shelves in any aisle. Look at the packaging. Focus on…

‘Rocketman’ Viewers Not Sure Movie Really Needed 45-Minute Princess Diana Death Scene
LOS ANGELES—Feeling that the scene wasn’t completely necessary to tell the famed musician’s life story, viewers of the Elton John biopic Rocketman told reporters Thursday they were not entirely convinced the film needed to include a 45-minute scene depicting Princess Diana’s death. “I understand she was a close friend of Elton John and that it was a pivotal moment in his life and career, but to devote that much screen time to a graphic, slow-motion recreation of the car wreck that killed Lady Di seems a little over-the-top,” said local moviegoer Liam Mazolla, who observed that the filmmakers didn’t even include John’s chart-topping Diana tribute “Candle In The Wind 1997” in the sequence, but instead drown…
