Find The Best Packaging Designer For Your Project

Want the best packaging designer? Welcome, to the 717 Graphic Design Company.

If you are looking for a packaging designer in the UK, you have come to the right place. At 717 Graphic Design we are a small design agency specialising in assisting small & medium size businesses with our outstanding artwork available at affordable prices.

There is a specific art and skill to develop artworks which requires training, experience and more to produce the best results. Whether it be a freelance packaging designer, a packaging design company or a packaging agency, it takes years to master the ability to balance aesthetics and practicality to ensure the right brand values efficiently emitted. Customers are drawn, above anything else, to products that look good. Instantaneously, you should be able to see an artwork and understand the story. If you can’t catch the eye? You’ve failed. It’s that simple.

So, what makes a great packaging designer?

A packaging designer and graphic designer must follow simple design rules, which funnily enough many packaging designers miss. Firstly, you should always reflect the personality of the business and find a way in the design to connect with the potential buyer. What exactly is it about your artwork which promotes the products USP (unique selling point) and is going to make someone say yes? It could be a dash of colour, an alluring photograph or, in many cases, simplicity with the correct text fonts positioned in the right areas. Ultimately, you must deliver what customers want.

In many sectors, for example in the food industry, the food packaging designer, which many large blue-chip companies employ, may think their brand is so strong that the design of the packaging becomes unnecessary. While there are some strong brands who sell purely on name, can you imagine buying a packet of BBQ ribs in nothing but shrink-wrapped cellophane? Would you buy it? No. Add branding and packaging with a box, via a logo, photography, content and design. The result? You will create a product packaging design which sells. It’s the trick of the eye, through creative packaging which makes the difference when products sell.



How much packaging design experience do you have?

We have decades of combined experience in the creative packaging design industry. We have seen small one-band businesses grow into huge businesses. Likewise, we have worked with experienced companies who have instructed us to do a full rebrand of the packaging, with one of our clients consequently increasing their turnover by 230% in 18 months.

How much will your packaging designer cost, per hour?

Like all packaging design companies in the UK, we can charge by the hour or as a fixed-fee project. We are only a small team and we delivery friendly, honest and reliable advice to all our clients. With packaging design, it’s not like designing a brochure or a flyer, it’s so open ended that some clients are on a budget whereas some want us to spend a week on just getting one photograph right for a piece of artwork. Give us a call, tell us exactly what you want, and your objectives of the project and we will give you an accurate quote up front, so you know exactly where you stand.
