Jemil's ECHO internship

Jamil Echo internship

"Great advice and a great studio atmosphere- win win!"

I'm a product design graduate but after gaining a bit of freelance experience in graphic design I wanted to come to ECHO to learn more about the branding and packaging process.

I was asked to collaborate on a project with Victor, a product design intern. We were asked to dissect an existing brand and use its core values to create a completely different product range and brand concept. Having a strong interest in branding, this particular project was something I really enjoyed.

It's been a great experience and gaining first hand advice from industry professionals in a studio with a nice atmosphere makes it a win-win!

For decades, marketers have focused on their packaging graphics to communicate brand personality. Good designs stand out on shelf, look differentiated from competitors, and appeal to consumers. We are now seeing an increasing investment in pack structure as an equal partner in brand communication. Structure not only provides a distinctive presence on shelf but also interacts with the consumer as they handle and use the pack. However, this physical brand engagement only happens when the product is picked up, once the consumer is already half-way committed to purchase.
