Aalto Package Design Symposium

10 October 2019

Dipoli, Aalto University


In a world of finite resources, what are the drivers of change in packaging design? How to address sustainability and how to design experiences and empathy? What is the role of packaging design when introducing new product types or entering new markets? These wicked questions were addressed and discussed at the first Aalto Package Design Symposium at Dipoli on October 10, 2019.


Our international keynote speakers include founder of The Dieline, Andrew Gibbs (USA) and award winning designer Fumi Sasada (JP).
