DVD covers and packaging can benefit from increased sales when thought and design have gone into the product branding and packaging. Product packaging is a serious matter and large companies employ designers for results.
Designing for DVD Covers
In a world where there are thousands of competitors for any one specific product, unusual or impressive packaging can make a huge difference. We are raised in a society where looks are perceived as important and this is especially true of DVD covers. Consumers generally tend to automatically go for a product where the packaging is most intriguing or appealing. Designers now have to literally think “outside of the box” to make their products stand out and make you want to buy the product.
Some important aspects to consider when designing a DVD cover are:
- Unusual Shapes
- Bright Colors
- Large Typography
- Creative Patterns
