Augmented reality for your packaging

Why use augmented reality with your packaging? Faced with societal and environmental issues, the challenges of globalization and consumer demands, packaging is constantly being improved, to be lighter, more functional, more beautiful, greener, and more connected.  How can you communicate more with less? What is the future of packaging?

Your packaging: a gateway to your digital content

Packaging is constrained physically by its shape and size, graphically by the printed space allocated to it, and legally by all the applicable regulations. Yet today, it must also say more.  Originally designed to protect content, it has become a marketing tool designed to promote the act of buying. By its design or its message, it needs to stand out!

The modern consumer

The modern consumer is curious, concerned, and attentive, as demonstrated by the phenomenal success of mobile applications such as Yuka and QuelCosmetic, which respond to the consumer’s increasing desire for transparency.


By using augmented reality with your physical packaging, you create a gateway to a rich brand universe, building a new experience around the product, from the moment of contact.
