Dr. Andrew Hurley
Founder and Associate Professor
About the instructor
Packaging and entrepreneurship came together at an early age for Dr. Andrew Hurley. As a young boy, he molded and sold pewter figurines, but inadequate shipping materials led to breakage. Frustrated, he set to researching better packaging alternatives … and he hasn’t ever stopped.
Dr. Hurley is an Associate Professor at Clemson University in the Department of Food, Nutrition, and Packaging Sciences. He leads the packaging design emphasis area, where he researches how to leverage packaging to solve even the toughest supply chain challenges.
In 2017, The Packaging School visited LUXE PACK NEW YORK, the only premier luxury packaging tradeshow in the U.S. dedicated to creative packaging.
