This study addresses the over-packaging phenomena in packaging design perspectives and, through the review of architectural design methods and packaging design principles, sets up a SyNalysis packaging design method with the packaging design process. Furthermore, an example of a PC magnifier redesigning is demonstrated in the thesis, step by step. The SyNalysis method contains scientific analytical methods and the designer's creative, synthetic methods. Its embodiment is presented in three processes: analysis, design and evaluation of the processes. The SyNalysis packaging design method serves as a guide to help packaging designers, and especially new and inexperienced designers pursue a more logical and practical way to create a better design. In addition, this packaging design method can also help packaging science students master packaging design skills in a more efficient way.
