Conceptualisation

Every great design begins with an idea; a scent, a mood, a colour, a place, a work of art,or a person; but as a brand owner or manager, we understand the difficulty of translating your vision into a commercially feasible design proposition. At Cr Creative Design, we employ a range of synectic-facilitating tools to translated, define and refine your idea from thought to design. From swatches to mood boards, sketches to 3D printed prototypes, we ensure to capture and correlate your vision into a final design.

Technical development

At Cr Creative Design we are acutely aware that the transition from concept to shelf has many challenges. We are able to integrate, and facilitate designs into your Packaging Design / NDP departments – ensuring a smooth design handover; this includes CR Creative design supplying precision CAD models (along with 3D file formats) and preliminary technical drawings ensuring continuity of design. We suggest also meeting with your brand manager and in-house packaging engineers to discuss design limitations and tolerances.

Manufacture Liaison

For small-medium sized business, without in-house packaging engineers, we are able to leverage on our years of tooling in-house expertise to bridge this gap and liaise directly with your delegated packaging manufacturer ensuring continuity of design, quality and cost.
