Geometric Packaging Brands adopt unique packaging shapes for cultural appeal Implications - Moving beyond traditional aesthetic design, brands, particularly those emerging from Asia, are turning to unique packaging forms and shapes for visual intrigue. Crafting packages to reference origami figures and intricate floral shapes, brands are seeking to not only showcase a sense of cultural origin, but also enhance traditional consumer-brand experiences with heightened sensory appeal.

In-Flight Beacon Consumers look for ways to stay in-the-know during travel Implications - Location-based beacon technology has the power to transform the travel industry by ensuring consumers are notified of every opportunity or promotion available to them.

Compact Care Toddler accessories are given a travel-friendly overhaul with portable adjustments Implications - Offering toddlers and infants a sense of comfort, brands are redesigning traditional infant furnishings and accessories to be more adaptable outside the home. Making it easy to fold or collapse bassinets and play pens into compact, portable shapes, brands are offering typically large or hard to maneuver products in a more efficient and easy to transport model. This reflects a need to make travel experiences and routine outings more efficient without sacrificing comforts of home.
