Hello Product. Meet Brand.

The right branding can transform your product from just another challenger to a category disruptor. The truth is that brand redesigns are expensive, and two-thirds of them don’t make an impact on consumer preference.

Want to reduce the risk of your brand and packaging redesign? Our story-driven & research-validated approach to packaging connects brands to consumers on shelf, online, and IRL. Give us the lowdown.

Now Entering the Packaging Lab

The best way to know how consumers will respond to your brand — put it in front of them. The packaging lab is a consumer testing approach embedded into the design process to ensure your new packaging design grows your business. We use a combination of testing models that deliver real actionable insights and better results.

1. Choice Drivers

We examine attributes that consumers in your category are excited about to determine the most effective way to communicate your product’s distinct qualities.  

2. Baseline Testing

We’ll execute a full category comparison to see how consumers rank your brand against 11 top competitors. 

3. Head-to-Head

We test our conceptual packaging formulas to learn what works with consumers shopping your category. We interpret that data to inform the final designs.

4. Validation

We put the final packaging design into full category testing to verify and validate before we move into production design.

We'll Eat Your Dog Food

Or, more ideally, drink your drink or eat the human food you make. 
Because we focus on emerging and challenger food and beverage brands,
we’re also consumers of all the 
good stuff you make.

Our focus is developing your brand to grow your business. 
We could go into all of the nitty gritty, but we’ll give you the TL;DR version:

Brand Strategy, Visual Identity, Naming and Logo Design, Messaging, Packaging Design,
Asset Strategy and Development, Digital Strategy, Website Development and Campaign Strategy

Give your product a that little extra something
a brand crafted to get consumers excited in stores, online, and IRL. 

The Skidmore team delivered the perfect balance of thoughtful design and brand strategy. A consumer product for retail is a little outside our comfort zone and the team laid out the perfect roadmap we could follow.
