60 Package Designs Created by the Devil Himself to Punish Us

Marketing is a business that relies on devilish tactics to get you to buy what companies are selling. Don’t believe me? Look around; everything you see is probably made to look better than it actually is. That’s the nature of advertising; hook people in with an idea and make them believe they’re getting that. With that in mind, take a look at these package designs that tricked many a poor soul into buying something they’re not really going to get.
