Mary Kay will be honored at Pratt Institute’s 2014 Art of Packaging Award Gala for its outstanding commitment to package design. The gala benefits the Marc Rosen Scholarship and Education Fund for Packaging by Design at Pratt Institute, which provides scholarships to masters-level students looking to pursue careers in cosmetics and packaging design.
“Each year, when choosing an honoree for The Art of Packaging Award Gala, an emphasis is placed on brands that excel at incorporating creativity, aesthetics, sustainability and functionality in their packaging design,” said Marc Rosen, who teaches the world’s only course on cosmetics and packaging design at Pratt Institute and is president and CEO of Marc Rosen Associates. “When Mary Kay was selected as honoree for the 25thanniversary of The Art of Packaging Award Gala, it was for these reasons and more. Mary Kay, over its rich history, has been a symbol of high design and luxury aesthetics. The company empowers the consumer through the idea that ‘One Woman Can’ make a significant impact and transform the lives of others. The commitment to ‘The Art of Packaging’ and its customers made Mary Kay the perfect choice.”
Sheryl Adkins-Green, chief marketing officer of Mary Kay, said “Mary Kay is honored to earn this prestigious award from Pratt Institute. We are motivated to continue in our path of excellence in modern design and helping women discover what they love about Mary Kay.”
The 2014 Art of Packaging Award Gala will be held on May 6, 2014 at a private club in New York with Adkins-Green, accepting the award.
