Unwrapped: The subtle joys of food packaging
The Atlantic
In design jargon, "appetite appeal" describes the level of sensory stimulation that food packaging should have in order to attract consumers.

But for brands, elegant typography and bold design can telegraph its own appetizing message.

Designing inspired packages for the masses
Brand Packaging
Creating packaging is an art. The package must be beautiful, functional and represent a brand’s identity. Satisfying these three needs is a major part of package design.
