Communicative Package

Data in packaging design enables products to communicate with consumers

Implications - Though technology is more advanced than ever, and consumers have come to expect connectivity at every turn, not all brands can organically integrate smart tech into their products. This has been especially challenging in the CPG world. Smart packaging that learns from and communicates to consumers is a step in the right direction. Using technology to create a dialogue between product and customer strikes the perfect balance of necessity and novelty to both innovate within a given category, and provide use to consumers.
Workshop Question - If you had to categorize your product or service, would it be more of a necessity, or novelty to your customer? How can you better strike a balance?
