Since 1979, we've developed retail product packaging that sells and adds value.
I'm Tom, designer of all the package
design shown above,
I'm the rare type of packaging designer that focuses entirely on being the packaging designer that increases your sales with packaging design that appeals to your market rather than package design to round out my own design portfolio.
With over 15 years of experience as a packaging designer I can personally offer you any of the following packaging design services:

Famous name brand package design is not as expensive as you might believe. Click the banner below to see:
How much will your
packaging design cost?
We estimate and charge you based on design in Three Phases as explained below.
There's a huge difference between nice-looking graphic design and retail package design that sells products.
There's nothing more important to retail buyers and consumers than the design of your retail product packaging since the right packaging design sells just about any product.
Of course Tom can also design any other printed piece. Since package design is the most difficult type of graphic design, graphic design for other forms of print is simple.
Many see our name brand design and are concerned about the cost, yet with our years of experience and knowledge we deliver very affordable name brand package design.
Working with our packaging design clients entirely online we save a lot of time and money in needless meetings and expensive face to face trips. With us you get more for less.
Working in logical step by step phases we rarely waste any time, saving money too.
The result is package design that sells
and meets all retail buyer and consumer criteria, and is technically
perfect for manufacturing.
How Tom designs name
Packaging Design that sells
After discussing your market and many other aspects and details - Tom designs and shows you one or more pencil sketches or computer sketches of the package design, package label or logo.
Tom calls out various thoughts as handwritten notes on the side or in email for further discussion.
Once all agree the rough package design, label or logo design is approved and best it can be, then Tom starts Phase Two of the packaging or label or logo design process, transforming the approved design into a computer rendering.
In Phase One Tom is considering the very best way the package or logo design can sell your product to your intended consumer, and the best way the package or logo design can appeal to retail buyers.
Phase One can also include
a competitive brand review to analyze competitors.
Based on the approved packaging design sketch...
...Tom creates a number of rough computer packaging design concept sketches as options to assess and choose from.
Each packaging design sketch option has its benefits and drawbacks.
At this stage you can test the design on friends, family, associates, potential consumers and retail buyers, or conduct a focus group. As a result Tom might refine the design at Tom's normal rate..
At the end of this
packaging design phase you choose a design for Tom to make final
The packaging design artwork prints perfectly.
Tom creates the final packaging design artwork with all the packaging design specs, you approve it, and Tom sends the approved package design artwork to your printer anywhere in the world.
If you wish, Tom can help you find or assess a great packaging design or label printer and get best package design or label design print prices.
We don't do any printing yet if we help you follow through with a packaging printer you can be doubly assured of the finest outcome in every way.
In the end you get a brand name result.
To pre-sell your packaging Tom can create a very real 3D image of the packaging before the packaging is printed that you can use on websites, in promotion and marketing.
When Tom completes Phase Three ask for a 3D package design mock-up form the packaging design art. The mock-up will be similar to this 3D packaging mock-up.

Helping make the right choices includes what we help avoid, legal
Truly professional in every way possible, the retail packaging and brand elements we design are loved by buyers, sell products to consumers, the art prints properly, and uncommon for most design firms, we pay very close attention to competing products to avoid claims of trademark and trade dress infringement by others.
In today's global economy product packaging and branding elements must be unique and distinctive to stand out amongst competitors and avoid competitors claiming that your package's trade dress is confusingly similar to their packaging and its trade dress.
Trade dress involves the
colors, fonts, images, logos, and other elements that make a package either
dissimilar or confusingly similar to the packaging design of others.
Often inexperienced designers are influenced by the design of other famous brand packaging, imitate its look and feel, and that imitation leads to claims of infringement.
Whether you are just starting out or in business for years, it is more important than ever before to be keenly aware of potential intellectual property problems with your brand name, your logo, and the design of your retail packaging.
Even if you have an intellectual property attorney you should realize few if any have a background in design, and in terms of trade dress, design is what enables great success yet also can cause major problems.
We are one of very few retail packaging design firms in the world that goes to such lengths to create retail packaging that sells and is unique and distinctive from a marketing as well as an intellectual property and legal point of view.
