Proposed topic:
 
Understanding consumer lifestyle, behavior, and preferences, in regard to product and packaging interaction is key to successful design. If employed early on in the design process, this heightened sensitivity, or “downstream” understanding of the consumer can greatly increase the effectiveness of a new product or package design, making it truly innovative in the marketplace.Through a series of examples highlighting work that has been done at the Livewell Collaborative Studios and Industrial Design Studios at the University of Cincinnati DAAP, this talk will discuss some of the methodologies that have been employed to better understand consumers and synthesize this understanding into innovative new product and packaging design concepts.
