API is judging Starpack Student Awards – effective packaging is in the detail!

The Student Packaging Design Awards is a perfect scheme for students to demonstrate their packaging design skills by producing a pack from one of the briefs provided by Starpack. This award allows students to showcase their talent and demonstrate how to make a pack graphically attractive. In addition the pack needs to meet functional requirements: preserve and protect the contents and be produced cost-effective with due regard to environmental issues.

The judging will take place in Grantham, UK on the 23rd of March. API will be represented by Eric Boinard, Technical Innovation Manager, Andy Kerr, Technical Market Support and Hester McQueen, Marketing Manager who will be members of the judging design panel.
