Across the country, thousands of young designers aspire to build a career by expressing their creativity. Day in and day out, they may work in cubicles dreaming up images, words or structures that bring brands to life. Often, they toil in anonymity. They are seldom recognized publicly for the work they do in the launch or redesign of a product’s new packaging.
That is why BRANDPackaging invited its readers to nominate young packaging designers whom they believe to be rising stars. Reputations are gained when a person excels over time. Success in a single, compelling project won’t cement a place in the pantheon of great designers. However, it doesn’t take long for co-workers and clients to recognize the characteristics and talents that point to a potential star.
