The in-house design department of Essentra Packaging has been named Design Team of the Year at the U.K. Packaging Awards.
The company was also highly commended in the Packaging Company of the Year category, after reaching the final shortlist of four nominees.
Based at the company’s headquarters in Nottingham, U.K., Essentra’s four-strong design team is responsible for customer projects around the world.
The team is responsible for creating designs for a variety of pack types and substrates that are then realized using gravure, digital, flexo and litho print processes.
Typical applications include security print designs, narrow tear tape opening devices and larger package labels.
The end-product design space is unusual in that the workable area is often extremely small, with tape widths normally 3–5 mm.
