TAKING THE SUBJECTIVITY OUT OF PACKAGE DESIGN
Pulse® quantifies the impact of package design on implicit perceptions, emotions & choice.
Pulse uncovers the impact of package design on implicit perceptions, emotions and choice.
Most of our decisions rely primarily on extrinsic cues vs. intrinsic qualities. Design is effective because it communicates and influences implicitly – at the level of subconscious meaning and emotion.
