If you’re a fan of food packaging there is no doubt that you’ve spend some time admiring some great Japanese food packaging designs. There is just something about it that leaves all other design looking bad. Check out some great examples in our 30 Great Japanese Food Packaging Designs list here at Ateriet.
Much of the Japanese food packaging you see is very minimalistic and clean. I think that is one of the main design elements why we like it so much. This style of packaging is hardly something you see a lot of in the western part of the world. Sure you see a lot of design work that is looking great and is inspired by the Japanese minimalist style but these designs rarely get to be used on any real products.
So while we wait for food producers in the west to catch up we can admire these Japanese food packaging designs, enjoy. Also, we don’t read or speak Japanese so some of these packaging designs might not be Japanese but style is right so just enjoy it.
