2. 10 packaging trends and news rockin’ 2018 (so far)

In July, instead of reviewing the top articles of previous month like we usually do, we looked at the first six months of the year. Our half-year review revealed your continued fascination with sustainability and anything packaging design related (good ideas must come from somewhere and your appetite for examples is insatiable). And ecommerce. But this was the first time we start to see the “Amazon” effect (see #9 below), which will outdo itself in the last half of 2018.

Here are the top articles from January to June:

1. 5 packaging design trends on the way out in 2018

2. 8 sustainable packaging hits of 2017

3. Chew on this: Packaging trends for new sweets and snacks [more on this right on the next page!]

4. Decadent Delici dessert packaging designed for Costco
