  • The Importance of Packaging Design and Expertise: "I think having this artwork and the structure management under control is fundamental and, and using experts with the right software, it's a must-have. You know, you don't wanna have to deal with the headache of delays because you're not leveraging what already exists. You wanna spend more time, you know, getting into the next retailer getting into something that is impactful on the shelf from a design standpoint and not just chasing."— Adrian Fernandez 00:14:07
  • The Importance of Color in Packaging: "Color can give you that pop on the shelf. It can give you that consistency of the brand across different flavors...but at the same time, color could be a case of debt if you don't execute it correctly."— Adrian Fernandez 00:19:06
  • The Importance of Asking the Right Questions: "If the designer is not asking this question, there's something off. That would be my way to say, you know, they should be asking, okay, what do you intend to do with this?"— Adrian Fernandez 00:24:29
  • The Advantages of Using a Solid Online Proofer for Packaging: "I mean, over time, this is something that we talk about with different customers, if you're trying to reduce the number of rounds... and this goes back to the point of speed to mark it and also labor efficiency... So those are the 2 things, Megan, I would say you get with a solid online proofer specifically designed for packaging." — Adrian Fernandez 00:30:08
