KUNERT revamps their hosiery packaging

      The Brand has been releasing products in new packaging since this summer.  They have been sharing the principle and reasons behind the change.  I have summarised them below…

I. Colour Coding (Farbcodierung)

      The background of the cover of the packaging is now colour-coded in a harmonious manner.  For example, the classic basic and fashion product can be found in a modern, light gray tone. Functional items such as the Fresh Up or Warm Up series are packaged in a fresh shade of blue or a warm shade of red.  Hence, customers can quickly find the product they want.  It also creates a sensual and modern image at the POS. 

Classic basics has a light grey background.
The Warm Up range has a red background.

II. Function Coding (Funktionscodierung)

      For Functional styles, round icons are used to indicate the type of the function(s) the style has, e.g., support class, thermal effect, ladder-resistant, etc.

“Buttons” indicating functions.

III. Product Groups (Warengruppen)

      Icons have been attached to the packaging that indicate the product group the style belongs to.  For instance, tights, knee-highs or socks.  This makes them easy to distinguish.

IV. Emotional imagery (Emotionale Bildsprache)

      The cover image focuses on the product, and what it could bring out sensually.
