Round Table

Creating Belief // The Power of Distinction

Humans are emotional beings. Overwhelmingly, our behaviour is driven by feeling over fact, heart over mind, impulse over reason. So, to truly connect with consumers in ways that matter, and last, brands must embed emotion into every experience – creating associations and infusing interactions with real and authentic memories.

JDO will present their ethos on the power of creativity in changing what your audience thinks and feels. Building brands is about building belief – in a purpose, a product, an experience, an idea – and as thinkers, designers and makers, how to apply tools to construct whatever that belief might be. From greener engine oil to biodegradable skincare, future-fit foods or soap that changes lives,. It is no longer about just designing products, packaging or brands – it is how to create belief.

The Advanced Features Of Digitall360° Tube Packaging Online Procurement System

Our recently launched digital sales channel DigitAll360° enables our customers to order smaller quantities, accessing the highest quality tubes combined with the latest printing technology. In the web shop, we combined various technological tools to allow our customers to check the look and feasibility of the final product: After uploading the artwork in PDF format, the file gets checked automatically by a PDF Preflight software for preset criteria. Once the instant check is over, the software creates a JPG which is sent back to the shop and is placed on the integrated 3D model directly. The provided feedback from the PDF check is available in PDF as well, so the designers can work on the necessary changes in order to get a print-ready file suitable for the digital printing technology we are using on our tube lines.
