Test alternatives and validate decisions

Eye tracking lets you assess if key attributes are effectively communicated and measure other things like findability, brand recognition, shelf positioning, and visual appeal. This can be done in isolation, against your own alternatives, or in direct comparison with your competitors’ designs. No matter what phase of the design process you are in, eye tracking provides unbiased answers on what elements of your packaging work, and which need improvement so you can quickly and easily optimize your design.
