Success for GPA at the Luxury Packaging Awards 2019
We’re delighted to announce that GPA just won two Luxury Packaging Awards – including Luxury Packaging Supplier for 2019. Since 2014, this prestigious awards ceremony has been celebrating the crème de la crème of prestige and premium packaging, making it one of the most exciting events on GPA’s calendar
In the past, the GPA Luxury team have walked away with some of the event’s top awards – in 2015, we were named Packaging Manufacturer of the Year and in 2017, our oversized compact for Victoria Beckham Collection Daylight Edition came top in the Cosmetics category. Now we’re celebrating two more notable wins: Luxury Packaging Supplier (formerly Packaging Manufacturer of the Year) and Luxury Seasonal Pack.
The judges were full of praise for the GPA team, commenting the following:
"GPA produce beautiful packs that tell stories using texture, imagery and structure. Their attention to detail is excellent and the team are highly experienced technically.
They understand how to convert design agency requests into sensorially exciting packs for consumers."
Of our Absolut bag, which beat out tough competition to win Luxury Seasonal Pack, the LPA judges said:
"A really nice simple and impactful design with good environmental credentials and collectability. Instantly visible as an Absolut brand. This doesn’t look over packaged and enables Absolut to launch a limited edition format in a really cost effective, consumer friendly and environmentally sound way."
If you’ve been following the GPA story you’ll know that in 2019 our parent company rebranded and expanded to welcome both our team and Lucas Luxury into the fold. To receive industry recognition at these awards and hear such kind words from the judges is a fantastic way to round off the year – and confirmation that the new and improved GPA family is destined for greatness!
