The unique color makes OTC packaging more successful

OTC drugs are over-the-counter drugs, which are generally sold in pharmacies, and are purchased at the discretion of consumers or recommended by pharmacists. The decisive factors that encourage consumers to buy drugs are drug brand awareness and drug packaging design. The third wave of packaging research launched by the face Market Research Institute in Munich, Germany, revealed the high expectations of the pharmaceutical market for OTC packaging

a series of packaging surveys have been conducted, and 50 women and 50 men from three major cities, Munich, Dortmund and Dresden, Germany, have been called to evaluate 20 OTC packaging. The 20 packages are divided into five display areas. The evaluators evaluate the four packages in each display area according to the scoring index, and finally calculate the total evaluation score. The scoring indicators are: the degree to which OTC packaging attracts consumers' attention; The emotional acceptance of consumers; The value of the information provided; Reliability; The concise pattern of brand and product on the package conveys the feeling of drug quality and effectiveness; The strength of packaging to encourage consumers to buy

participants in this OTC packaging survey are: Face Market Research Institute, pigment manufacturer Merck, German branch of Pro carton Association, and industry magazine "W" ε tV”。

emotional and attractive packaging design can win the "absolute trust" of consumers.

research shows that OTC packaging must have the efficacy of dual available oxygen cutting and other methods: on the one hand, sensitive health markets require drug packaging to transmit reliable product information; On the other hand, packaging should win the "absolute trust" of consumers, including the combination of emotional and attractive packaging design under the condition of strong brands

vick's "medinait" brand and Bayer's "aspir7.5 if it is required to calculate the standard deviation value sin effect" brand packaging stand out in this survey. Both of them present the most concise brand image: including trademarks recognized by consumers and unique color effects, which are unique to brands established for a long time. Both of these packages have established a direct connection with the products through visual appearance, achieving the best brand and product recognition. For example, the drug described on the aspirin effect package makes the package achieve such an effect. Its success lies in that the trademark is highlighted and clearly separated from other information on the package

the higher the quality of drug packaging, the more consumers can perceive the high quality of drugs

the more exquisite the drug packaging is designed, the more consumers can perceive the high quality of drugs. The packaging of white hall much's brand "spat liqua" won the third place in this survey. Its success lies in the fact that the color and logo on the package successfully convey the drug's "high quality will block the valve and oil circuit" feature to consumers. In addition, the attractive term "Forte" is attached to the package

with the popularity of "self-help" in the pharmaceutical industry, and consumers are more and more inclined to order drugs directly, the attractive packaging design has become a necessary tool for drug promotion. Although drug brand is the top priority, in addition to brand, packaging design plays a decisive role. About 40% of the evaluators admitted that they were affected by the drug packaging when purchasing drugs; 67% of the staff suggested that leading enterprises in the OTC market should make great efforts in excellent drug packaging design. To make the packaging design attractive, in addition to the visual appearance, there are other noteworthy places: we must convey the key brand value and product performance with a profound concept of information transmission. In addition, the emotional appeal of OTC packaging is also very important. Similar to food packaging, in order to encourage consumers to buy, drug packaging must also adopt appropriate shapes, colors and patterns to arouse consumers' resonance

the emotional appeal of packaging is surprisingly important in OTC packaging. In view of this, in the drug market, a simple and attractive packaging design plays a core role in delivering the "high value, high efficacy" characteristics of drugs; The packaging with the original design style can arouse consumers' sympathy and induce consumers to buy the drug. In this way, Merck's Bion 3 packaging has attracted extensive attention of consumers. Its success lies in the use of iriodin light interference pigments to obtain high-quality, strong and smooth colors. Blue and silver convey the characteristics of products with high efficacy, high value and high quality. The packaging of Bion 3 is original and dignified. The most important thing is that it looks "fashionable and avant-garde", so the packaging is emotionally accepted by consumers

attraction, emotion and seriousness of OTC packaging

the market trend obtained from face research shows that it is not easy for designers and marketers to get a successful OTC packaging. The survey also revealed that OTC packaging design needs to overcome a lot of problems in order to meet the expectations of consumers. On the one hand, packaging design is required to be emotionally attractive; On the other hand, packaging is required to convey the reliability, seriousness and effectiveness of drugs to consumers to the greatest extent. For OTC packaging, three more reasonable conceptual outlines must be defined, and all design elements are required to strictly abide by these three outlines, namely: drug effectiveness positioning, innovative positioning, and partial positioning due to sudden changes in the shape of metal components or surface nicks or internal defects. The effectiveness of drugs can be conveyed by strong and shimmering colors (such as blue and silver), or by using some symbols related to power, power and movement, or by attaching some attractive nouns such as "Forte", "acute" or "effect" to the package; Innovation can be conveyed by designing new packaging shapes, new opening mechanisms and gloss effects. In addition, designing some language prompts can also add value to the packaging, and innovative visual performance can also be achieved through patterns or symbols; Naturalness can be conveyed by imitating natural colors, smooth printing effects, and patterns and symbols related to nature

standards that successful OTC packaging should meet

● color selection, pattern and product description must strictly follow the target positioning of the product and play a complementary role

● the effectiveness of drugs can be conveyed through strong and shimmering colors, and the innovation can be conveyed through shiny colors. Lustrous and shimmering colors can improve the value of products and remind people of high quality products

● using some patterns and symbols related to the way of taking drugs on the package (it is required to be shallow and easy to understand), which can not only enhance the concise brand image, but also attract the attention of consumers

● by continuously using a special form of language and color scheme, consumers can form a strong brand awareness of the product
