Label design is one of the most important features when creating a product. Undoubtedly, label design plays a pivotal role in consumer decision-making, particularly in a physical setting, such as a supermarket.

When creating a label design, it is extremely important to develop something that will resonate with customers, explain your product clearly and effectively, as well as represent your brand and everything it stands for.

Label Design is a key marketing tool for any product at the point of sale. Whether your product is a well-known brand, recognisable to all, or a brand-new company, just starting out, the design of your label is a key way to generate interest amongst customers.

Label Design and Consumer Decision-Making

It can be argued that eye-catching labels are extremely powerful. Powerful enough to encourage customers to purchase a product, with no prior knowledge to the brand, the product itself or its reputation. Engaging and inviting label designs can be enough to persuade purchase behaviour. Incidentally, this makes the process of even more important.

We have all experienced the impact of a brilliant label. Whether we decided to switch up our shampoo due to a new eye-catching label, or swapped out our choice of washing liquid due to the beautiful display of ingredients on a new product label. Simple scenarios such as these demonstrate the importance of labelling for product perception, and show how important it is to ensure your design and quality maintains a premium standard.

When Things Go Wrong

In some situations, brands can fall victim to a poorly designed label. These mistakes can be extremely detrimental for your organisation. A pertinent and hot example of poorly designed labels can be seen in the most recent episode of The Apprentice. In this episode, the teams were tasked to create a brand-new baby food, in which one team decided to take the name ‘First Time Foodies’.

Unfortunately, poorly executed and misjudged design work was implemented and their label turned out to be a disaster. What the team thought to be a clever use of design features, replacing the 2 O’s in ‘foodies’ with food bowls, turned into a catastrophic failure, reading to clients and customers as ‘First Time Dies’.

This poorly judged label design resulted in their product receiving zero sales, further proving that no matter how good the product is, if the label does not showcase it in a brilliant light, it is unlikely to excel and achieve the recognition it deserves.

Involving the Experts

When it comes to label design, it is advised that organisations invest and involve the expertise of graphic designers in the process. From the fonts, to the imagery and graphics, to the logos and consistency, it is imperative that your design is delivered to the highest of standards, in order to promote your organisation effectively.

Label design can be considered a first impression, with customers, clients or even competitors. We are always encouraged to make a brilliant and memorable first impression and label design is no different. The aspiration is for people to engage with your label and incidentally generate a memorable experience with the product, so when they see it again in future, they are encouraged to re-purchase.
