Spring Cleaning Season: Packaging Design Inspiration

 

The freshness of spring always reminds us that it’s time for a thorough cleaning. With so many home cleaning products on the market, I want to showcase the designs of ones we admire (and that clean wonderfully as well).

Key elements often utilized to create effective packaging design include:

  • Hierarchy of typographical content. This may include how product names are identified, key ingredients, and top product features.
  • An incorporation of the existing visual brand and packaging style. While some brands are known only for cleaning products, others are part of a more extensive collection of products. The brand is stronger when all products are consistent in design style.
  • The use of colour and complementary patterns to identify different products or scents within the collection.
  • Strong consistency across label designs. This helps buyers easily identify the product on store shelves.

Here are our top cleaning product packaging design inspirations:
