Optimizing the user-experience right from the unboxing moment

1st impressions count. In order to build the best relationships with your customers, they need to feel excited and engaged from the moment they set eyes on the product packaging & throughout their discovery process when unboxing.

To achieve this, the design & quality of every label, component & packaging communication is critical in order to inspire, create & perfect the optimal emotional connection between client and brand. We have a wealth of experience in this area, with 4 key driving pillars:

Innovation, user experience and sustainability lying at the heart of our design process.

we design for user experience

Design

We immerse ourselves in the process of understanding the real needs of the client. Using our experience and expertise we can quickly identify the creative solutions and production issues that need tackling.

This starts with a co-creation session with the Forward design team, production experts and client representatives. The ideation workshop format results in a focused design prototype / production concept.

With over 30 designers, our aim is to push boundaries, both technically and creatively, whilst reducing the total cost

Manufacture

In fact, Forward China’s QC staff consistently receive ‘Exceptional Supplier’ ratings from our global clients. Considering we provide over 25 million accessory cases per annum, that’s quite an achievement. 

Likewise in US and Europe, we have longstanding validated partnerships with multiple European and US suppliers.

Rigorous, regulatory testing by the world’s leading compliance laboratories ensures that products provided by Forward meet and surpass the highest global standards of certification.
