The Art of Takeaway Food Presentation: Tips and Tricks for Eye-Catching Packaging Design

In the world of food, we often hear the phrase, "we eat with our eyes first." This statement couldn't be more accurate when it comes to takeaway food presentation. In today's fast-paced world, people are more inclined to order takeout than ever before, and companies that offer takeaway food have to find ways to stand out from their competition. This is where the art of takeaway food presentation comes into play, and having an eye-catching packaging design can make all the difference. 

In this blog post, we will delve into the importance of creating visually appealing packaging, and share some tips and tricks for creating designs that are sure to make your customers' mouths water.

Choosing packaging materials

1 - Choose the right materials

The first step in creating eye-catching takeaway packaging is to choose the right materials. Packaging materials come in a variety of options, including paper, cardboard, plastic, and eco-friendly options such as biodegradable or compostable materials. Consider the type of food you will be packaging when making your decision. Remember, customers are more aware than ever of the environmental impact of packaging, so it’s always a good idea to choose eco-friendly options where possible.

Keep packaging simple

2 - Keep it simple

Simplicity is key when it comes to takeaway food packaging design. Too much clutter or complexity can be overwhelming and may detract from the appeal of the food. Stick to a clean and simple design that highlights the food and makes it easy to identify.

Custom branding is key when it comes to packaging and brand awareness

Takeaway food packaging is a great opportunity to showcase your branding. Make sure your packaging design includes your logo, brand colours, and any other branding elements that will help customers remember/identify your company.

Consider all the efficient shape and sizes of packaging

4 - Consider the size and shape

The size and shape of your packaging can make a big impact on the overall design. Consider the type of food you will be packaging and choose a size and shape that complements the food. For example, a long, narrow box may be better suited for a sandwich than a round container.

Use high quality images for packaging

5 - Use high-quality images

High-quality images are essential for creating an eye-catching packaging design. Use images that accurately represent the food and are visually appealing. Make sure the images are clear and sharp, and consider using a professional photographer to capture the best possible images.

The right typography is essential! Choose a font that is easy to read and complements your branding. Consider using different fonts for different elements of the design, such as the product name, ingredients, and nutritional information.

Packaging needs to be functional and user-friendly

7 - Don’t forget about functionality 

While the visual design of your packaging is important, functionality is also crucial. Make sure your packaging is easy to open, close, and carry. Consider adding handles, tabs, or other features that will make it easier for customers to transport their food.
