Diamond Wins Recognition in American Package Design Awards Competition

Rochester, NY – Diamond Packaging partnered with Pure Branding LLC to win recognition in the 2009 American Package Design Awards.

The competition, which is sponsored by Graphic Design USA, recognizes graphic design professionals for their best work and emphasizes the value that graphic design brings to business and society. It also celebrates the power of design to advance the brand promise and to forge an emotional link with the buyer at the moment of truth.

The companies were awarded a Certificate of Excellence in the Packaging category for the Joyn SheaFlex70 carton produced for BSP Pharma. The carton's clean, white graphics gives the consumer a clear message that the product is uniquely positioned in a crowned environment. The graphics were achieved by offset printing four color process inks inline with UV gloss coating.
