High-tech, high intelligence production facilities, will continue to promote the development of packaging technology, the new process, automation, computer integration, the application of food packaging will provide more updated design concept. Modern new superb printing, plate-making technology to all aspects of packaging to provide a guarantee to achieve the perfect effect, combining art and science and technology more closely interact with each other and mutual restraint. Scientific and technological breakthroughs in modern food packaging plays an important role as a designer must be able to be familiar with new techniques and new technologies and be able to take full advantage of new technologies has made it possible for modern food packaging services, using computer design tools, the pursuit of a more refined , perfect, and have cultural connotation of the packaging design.
2. The development of modern materials
Packaging material is used to manufacture packaging containers and packaging materials constitute a general term. Its categories include wood, paper, cardboard, glass, metal, plastic, fabric and various auxiliary packaging materials. Its basic performance is protective, security, processing adaptability, convenience and commodity, but also includes resource characteristics, economical, and recyclable nature. Food packaging is a systems engineering, packaging materials is the foundation.
With the development of social science and technology, various new materials are constantly being established and used, packaging materials from the natural development of the synthesis, from a single developed into composite materials of mutual penetration has become a world-wide trends and the inevitable. It represents a new era of cultural information, a new force in life reflected, making the ranks of modern food packaging inside has added a new family, so that packaging has a contemporary aesthetic culture, epidemic and popularity . The emergence of a new material will make a packaged form with a distinctive mark, such as metal foil packaging, are considered high-grade, high-quality packaging materials with contemporary features, so a new type of snack food have adopted a number of leisure Such packaging material.
The development of new materials, not only have higher technology content, and more scientific and reasonable, safe and reliable, and more emphasis on wholesome and harmless, more delicate the pursuit of material, smooth, flexible, feature-rich and the texture, but also give full consideration to environmental protection, re – use and other factors, some material can imitate the natural properties of the materials to replace the role of traditional materials, and can achieve the best results packaged foods.
As a contemporary designer, to acquire new properties of the materials, and can accurately grasp the beauty of a variety of materials, the ingenious application of these materials, so that the effect of surprise was packing up.
The development of modern design ideas with the modern food packaging design a new space
Development of the times made modern design concept has already developed to the design ideas are not limited to the development of the arts. Wide range of design thinking to develop and establish a correct concept of modern packaging design and establish a design concept in line with requirements of the times and in line with modern aesthetics, values and consumer outlook. New discoveries of modern science, interdisciplinary involvement, human values and their own understanding of the surrounding ecological environment, cultural trends, psychology, life and world view influence far beyond the expected range, the designer should give full play to the use of divergent thinking, walk in the forefront of the times, look for the unique design style, grasp the era of beauty, the future markets are forward-looking and common sense.
1. Modern Food Packaging and Environmental Protection
As the recognized categories of education face the constant expansion of protection of the environment will also benefit from packing business started, reduce costs, re-use, reduce pollution, sustainable development, will be the 21st century, we have to face the important issue.
Resource consumption and environmental protection have become the two major global ecological hot spots, and modern packaging and they are closely related, packaging materials used in the manufacture consume large quantities of natural resources; in the packaging production process, some break down toxic substances will cause pollution of the environment; large quantities of packaging waste is also the importance of environmental pollution caused by these factors contribute to the vicious cycle of nature. The Earth\’s resources are limited, not inexhaustible, with the endless, each material needed to form a long time, a large number of forest logging has seriously damaged the Earth\’s climate and ecological balance. Packaging industry a huge demand for resources, so we, as a packaging designer who will have to set an example from my start in the design of packaging, seek refined and less, reasonable simple, prevent over-packing and packaging exaggerated. At present, the market there are some boxes bigger and bigger, and the contents inside the dress is very small, which not only a waste of resources, but also to consumers, creating a feeling of being deceived. In the design, promoting the use of high-tech composite materials to replace glass, metal and other materials, such as milk, fruit juice drinks packaged using aseptic packaging paper-plastic composite materials and technologies, substantial energy savings in packaging costs, while also better to maintain food flavor and quality, and granting it the beauty of the era.
We live in an environment, plastic white pollution resulting from everywhere, our city will be surrounded by plastic and other packaging waste. Therefore, the face of this grim reality, we should try to set up training in food packaging, to solve a rational positioning of products and packaging to avoid the slick packaging, maximize the use of high-performance packaging materials and high-tech packaging technology, in ensuring the quality of goods at the same time to minimize duplication of packaging materials and improve utilization, reduce the cost of a comprehensive package, focusing on eco-environmental protection, so that product packaging and the people and environment to establish a symbiotic and harmonious relationship, and constantly develop controllable biodegradation, photodegradation, and water-soluble packaging materials, the introduction of new packaging materials, while simultaneously launching its recycling technology to packaging to reduce the ecological damage to the environment to a minimum level.
2. The establishment of green packaging systems have become the subject of our common
Vigorously promote the green food that is clean, safe, high quality, nutritious food at the same time, the new green packaging concept has been continuously paying attention to the people, it is beneficial to the packaging of the human environment is conducive to environmental protection and resource conservation packaging. Research and development of green packaging is an inevitable trend of social development, but also the future of packaged hot competition in the market.
Green packaging technology systems should address the use of packaging throughout the entire process before and after the destruction of the ecological environment, research and find the ideal green packaging technology for different commodities to the corresponding green packaging research and development products and methods. The practical significance of promoting green packaging is to promote the establishment and improvement of packaging resource recovery and recycling system that allows full use of packaging waste, greatly reducing the environmental pollution and ecological damage, to reduce consumption of natural resources, so that the living environment of human beings safer and more comfortable.
Today, people in the pursuit of reverting to simplicity, return to nature\’s design. Starting from natural to go along with the laws of natural development, development of natural beauty.
In the visual, emotional and guide people to return to nature, breathe the natural air, and fully tap the essence of natural beauty, and can be fully reflected in packaging design.
In short, to design excellent food packaging, you must first set ahead of design ideas, people-oriented, emphasizing the key to packing is accurate and quickly convey information. Must make full use of modern scientific and technological achievements, good at using new materials, new processes, new structures to create a multi-functional, new shape, new interiors in the new modern lifestyle and living needs.
The twenty-first century is the network society is the information era of knowledge economy, we need to put food packaging be treated as a system to enable people to live better, spending the least, that is to be a good little consumers to enjoy. Design has more than just a simple product, packaging, more of a service, communication, design changes from hard to soft, from visible to invisible changes in the design, the design also enjoys more of the surface. The entry of WTO and international trade integration is our future design direction, emphasis on people-oriented, so that the desire of people to escape from the material out of a little more freedom of choice, emphasizing service of human beings and sustainable development purposes.
