The Total Package with Kirk Visola
In this episode we talk about staying on top of packaging trends as a designer, the importance of being fresh and innovative while also conforming to the constraints of the package and the shelf, and where you’re most likely to find Kirk getting inspiration in the grocery store. We also discuss how consulting printers (and choosing the right ones) before creating a packaging project makes all the difference.
Kirk also shares why he only recently included his photo on his LinkedIn page, explaining why he didn’t want his race to be the focus for potential connections and clients instead of his work. Now, he’s unapologetically showing the world who he is, and showing future creative agency owners that it can be done.
Listen Long and Prosper!
