Packaging artwork often receives attention later than it should in the creative process, which has brought on many issues that have proven costly in both time and money. A new book written by two former GlaxoSmithKline design and artwork managers describes the key capabilities required to deliver right-the-first-time packaging artwork. "Developing and Sustaining Excellent Packaging Labelling and Artwork Capabilities" is now available in IoPP's online bookstore.
Stephen McIndoe and Andrew Love write from the perspective of pharmaceutical and other healthcare companies, but their 200-page book is packed with insights and suggestions that are relevant to anyone who needs to implement sustainable packaging and labeling artwork practices as part of their company's business strategy-especially when regulatory considerations and changing global marketplaces enter the mix.
