“Design-wise, I know that at Meijer, when I started over 25 years ago here, we tried to emulate the national brands then we moved to our own look with the national brand colors and now we’ve changed over to our own look and our colors and even coming up with our own catchy titles of what the product is called and I think that more and more retailers are going to that.”
– Gregg Keeton, Designer, Meijer

The Meijer Private Brand packaging design team has adopted a phrase from Daniel Imhoff, “Packaging is the skin of commerce. It both stimulates and simplifies the purchasing process” (2002). As a result, Meijer views Private Brand packaging design as an important branding and selling tool. Learn the challenges and triumphs during our transformation from a design team to a brand-building design force. The Meijer Private Brand packaging design team does more than design packaging, it builds brands through design! During this session you will learn:

  • The importance of a unified, creative team approach
  • How to navigate smoothly and successfully to influence brand decisions based on/supported by design.
