Accessible Design course heads to Foodtech Packtech 2016

The Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) will be running a half-day training course on accessible packaging design. The Accessible Packaging Design: Easy to Open, Easy to Use course, held in October in Auckland, New Zealand, will coincide with Foodtech Packech 2016.

Accessible design and ease of use should be critical design elements of all of packaging, as this enables a growth in market share. Without standard packaging design guidelines, businesses will lose customers because their needs are not being met. A range of people have issues with difficult-to-open packaging, including the elderly, those with disabilities, arthritis sufferers and children.

This half-day training course, which has been developed in conjunction with Arthritis Australia and Georgia Tech Research Institute, USA, is designed to foster an improved understanding of Accessible Design guidelines.
