Addresses color preferences and trends at the Package Design & Development Summit 2011
Cleveland, OH (February 14, 2011) – DayGlo Color Corp., a global leader in the color industry, will be examining packaging and consumer developments in the 21st century from the unique perspective of color at the Package Design & Development Summit 2011 (March 1-3; St Petersburg, FL).
If the 20th century was about following color trends, then the 21st is all about using color to express our individuality. In this era of personalization, consumers increasingly seek niche color palettes over traditional ranges in their lives and, therefore, in the products they buy.
In this lively session, Dr. Wayne Likavec, Product Development and Quality Control Manager at DayGlo, will challenge the audience to look beyond accepted tenets of color in packaging and propose a new direction, examining the industry from the perspectives of: colors themselves, color effects, and the applications of color in consumer and commercial packaging.
“New categories of influencers are broadening our color choices,” Likavec notes. “From private label to sustainability and the globalization of style, packaging developers, designers, and brands alike need to understand that color can play a different – and increasingly important – role in drawing consumers. Packaging, it seems, has become fashion.”
