Packaging is the name used to refer to the wrappers, containers and labels of commercial products. In increasingly competitive markets, packaging is a concept that is gaining in importance and innovation in this area is becoming a very important factor in differentiating products.
Packaging surrounds, protects, transports, communicates and attracts. It must also have certain characteristics, such as being appropriate for the proper storage of the product, being made of specific materials, and, at the same time, being environmentally friendly.
The Summer Course in Packaging Design aims to train professionals with an ability to communicate the characteristics of a product both formally and graphically. These professionals are able to design with a social conscience and respect for the environment and to anticipate needs and meet them in some way.
