Our package testing includes conscious and nonconscious measures using online environments and in-person methodologies to reliably determine which at-shelf and e-commerce designs will be most successful.
Along all stages of the packaging journey we use online and in-situation environments. We also offer agile, quick-turn research with our PackEXPRESS™ method.
DISCOVER - Pre-Design Planning
Using a range of in-situation pre-design assessment techniques we help to inform the design brief and guide the process to be as effective and efficient as possible. Online concept screening and mobile pack assessment help guide further development.
Different structures are assessed during early-stage research. Different online tools are used to measure nonconscious drivers of appeal and at-shelf standout creating a clear roadmap for future structural work.
DEVELOP - Mid-Stage Screening & Optimization
Customized approaches utilizing a range of implicit techniques to uncover emotional resonance and identify opportunities to drive pack innovation. Our innovative qualitative research can immerse the moderator right in the environment you are testing.
