Aalto Package Design Symposium 2019

Aalto Package Design Symposium 2019

In a world of finite resources, what are the drivers of change in packaging design? How to address sustainability and how to design experiences and empathy? What is the role of packaging design when introducing new product types or entering new markets?

We will address these questions and many more at the first Aalto Package Design Symposium.
