Contest winners created unique packaging, label and retail display solutions
Avery Dennison (NYSE: AVY) today announced the winners of the Avery Dennison Brand Experience Contest, which challenged designers to deliver a unique brand identity for fictional products in five categories, including children’s juice, red wine, organic coffee, salad dressing and shampoo. The winners were announced at The Dieline Package Design Conference in Chicago.
Avery Dennison developed the worldwide packaging design contest to support and inspire design professionals. The contest encouraged more than 270 participants from 43 countries to leave behind normal project constraints to create work that showcased their creative skills and vision.
Selected by a panel of internationally-recognized designers, educators and thought leaders in the package design industry, the five winners reflect a global group of professionals from design and advertising firms as well as self-employed design professionals.

Juice Category–Stuart Robson, Saltmine Group, Sydney, Australia.

“In addition to communicating brand stories, we strive to bring more to the table by offering innovative production, design and business development ideas,” said Christopher Loke of Pixology Designs, winner in the Shampoo Category. “This contest provided a unique platform for us to explore our creativity, learn about new label and packaging innovations, and receive recognition among our peers and potential clients.”
The five winners received their awards at The Dieline Package Design Conference in Chicago on June 22, 2011. As title sponsor of the conference, Avery Dennison displayed the winners’ work in the Brand Experience Contest booth.
Following the conference, the winners will receive international acclaim on TheDieline.com, the world’s number one package design website.
