)-- Package Design Awards Select Magnetic Brush Set by Anisa International, Inc. as a Catergory Finalist
HBA IPDA Awards Recognize Outstanding Cosmetics, Fragrance, Personal Care, Skin Care and Sustainable Packaging Innovations
Anisa International, Inc. announces that their 3-Piece Magnetic Brush Set for Sephora has been chosen as a finalist in HBA Global Expo’s International Packaging Design Awards (IPDA) in the Prestige Cosmetics category. These prestigious awards honor the year’s most innovative packaging in several categories including cosmetics, fragrance, personal care and skin care.
The 3-Piece Magnetic Brush Set, retailed and marketed by Sephora, is particularly unique due to its patent-pending magnetic technology, which allow three brush heads to be interchangeably placed on a single handle, perfect for travel. In keeping with the company’s signature vision of innovation, Anisa International developed the technology with the beauty consumers’ continuing demand for more inventive and economical cosmetic tools in mind.
The entrants were judged by a “Committee of 100” made up of industry professionals, designers, suppliers and members of the media. IPDA submissions were evaluated on the following criteria: originality, design concept, creative use of new materials, components and decorating processes, technical competency and effective brand messaging.
“Anisa International continually strives to be the industry leader when it comes to creativity and innovation of new cosmetic applicators and brushes. Being recognized as a finalist for the Sephora 3-Piece Magnetic Set by IPDA and the HBA Expo is an exciting honor for us, and our retail partners,” said VP of Sales and Marketing Julie Scudder-Feldman.
As the longest running package design awards in the beauty industry—major brands, niche players and indie companies, have all won HBA’s IPDA awards for their stand-out package design and engineering achievements.
“Packaging plays a significant role in our industry, and its aesthetics, engineering, and design can make or break a product. Manufacturers know the power packaging has on impulse buys, brand loyalty, and influencing the purchasing decision,” said Jill Birkett, Event Director of HBA Global Expo. “HBA is honored to be able to recognize the year’s most innovative and creative packaging design and celebrate products that are truly exceptional in their categories.”
Category Winners and Grand Award are ceremoniously announced during the HBA Global Expo & Conference, September 15-17, 2009 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York. In addition all the award finalists and winners are displayed in the IPDA Showcase at HBA, which is the largest product development event in the industry.
