Let’s co-create in our DesignStudios

Creativity and customer focus are at the heart of our business. In our experience, the best packaging solutions are often discovered through working together with our customers. Therefore, we are happy to invite all brand owners to our DesignStudios.

True innovation seldom happens in isolation – that’s why we have established 11 studios around the world to host and facilitate inspiring design workshops with our customers.

We know how important packaging is to your brand. Through our tailored workshops we can help you respond to new consumer needs for more eco-friendly, renewable packaging.



You bring the knowledge regarding the unique challenges of your business, your products and your markets. We bring research & design competence, an exciting product portfolio, creative minds and a wealth of experience.

Together, we have the insights needed to co-create the best possible packaging for your product.

But packaging design is not only about the packaging itself. It should also take into account the end-to-end journey through supply chain to end-user. These factors are also addressed in our workshops with tools for 3D visualisation, total cost optimization and a wide range of materials and packaging samples. We analyse your supply chain to find savings - and last-but-not-least, we identify improvements that will make your packaging a truly eco-friendly choice.

Why work with us?
