Creating pharmaceutical labels is a challenge because there are so many elements that have to be included. There are a lot of requirements for the information you need on your pharmaceutical labels. Because of this, the design element of these labels can suffer. However, this doesn’t have to be the case for you. If you’re working on a label design for a pharmaceutical product, here are some tips to make a great appearance.
It’s very important that the labels for prescriptions and such follow certain regulations. The Food and Drug Administration, or the FDA, has these rules in place to protect people. You want to assure that all of that important information is on your label. This will keep you out of trouble with the FDA! It will also ensure that your consumers are getting what they need. By presenting your labels correctly, you can cause people to trust your brand more.
Of course, the name of your product and brand should be on the label. Some of the other things you need to include in your label are ingredients, dosage, directions, and warnings. You should also add information about side effects and how to get help if the medication is taken the wrong way. You can contact the FDA to get up-to-date information on label requirements & regulations regarding labeling your product the correct way.
Even though there are a lot of things that have to be on pharmaceutical labels, you can still have fun with the design. Using colors that catch attention is still a good idea. Certain, calming colors, can make sure people who look at your product feel like it can help them. Colors like blue or even green might work well for you. You can also use color to help highlight important information on your label. Side effects, intake directions, and other things like that should be easily visible to your consumers. So, you may want to use specific, eye-catching colors for areas like this.
Sometimes, it’s really hard to stay on top of all of the rules of the label design. This is especially the case when you have a food, beverage, or medical product. It might feel like a lot to think about. But, don’t let yourself get overwhelmed!
