23 | Delivering a beautiful experience with Evelio Mattos

Why you’ve got to listen to this episode:

Have you ever got something that came in a beautiful package and opening it was an exciting and pleasant experience? Even before fully opening the package you thought it was a high-quality product?

Those feelings of excitement, pleasure and reassurance of a high-quality product are all purposefully designed. When it comes to a well-packaged product, nothing is left to chance.

The package of a product is the most intimate experience someone has with a brand besides the use of the actual product, and sometimes it can be the determination if you’ll keep and use that product or return it.

Packaging must be a reflection of your brand and it can elevate or underwhelm your brand. In this episode, you’ll listen to Evelio Mattos, one of the world’s top package designers on how packaging is a physical part of your brand and how important it is to get it right.

Who can benefit from listening in:

This is a must listen to any organization that has a physical product. And those who don’t have a physical product can apply a lot of the insights shared in this episode in different experiences. Either in their physical locations, at events, in documents or any other point of contact a customer or client may have with your organization.

Key takeaways from this episode:

  • Packaging is the brand physical embodiment.
  • Packaging must deliver a beautiful experience. It should feel like a gift.
  • Packaging plays a huge role in either elevating or underwhelming a product.
  • Don’t think of packaging from the practical stance of where to place a product to take it from the store to the client, but rather on the experience it will provide the client when opening the package.
  • Package should provide an experience, it should create a sense of excitement and anticipation.
  • Packaging must create layers of anticipation and delightful moments of unveiling.
