There are so many flower seed companies out there, yet all of the packaging looks exactly the same. Each brand has only minor differentiations from the others, and more often than not this differentiation isn’t advertised. The selection of brands, products, and their packaging all blurs into one single mess as the consumer is unable to tell one apart from another.
With minimalism and personalization trending, there is an opportunity to play up these features to create a design that will stand out among the existing selection, and reach out to a new and specific target audience.
Create a minimalist packaging design that focuses on the personal, passionate and artistic side of gardening. Draw attention to the care, dedication and joys of the process, rather than focusing on the final results.
