Packaging

Practical assignment (creative problem solving)

Using the logo you created in Week 1 and the brochure you designed in Week 2, think about your brand and design packaging for your product. Remember that you can decide about the detail of your product. Is it dog biscuits, meat products in a tin, dry pellets or a new and exciting product?  Do your design according to the following steps:

1ExplorationUse sketching techniques to draw thumbnails and hand in your thumbnails as scanned PDFs.

2Brand integration
Choose one of your thumbnails and refine your design. Place it next to your brochure and logo and see how you can merge your design with the brand identity. Also, what fundamentals of the brand can you draw from and use in your design?
Hand in a picture of your thumbnails, mock-ups, logo and brochure together.

3Design
Now design your packaging properly, using any design application of your choice (or a combination of e.g. Photoshop, InDesign and Illustrator). Export the flat design as a PDF.

I then later on took out the handles for more design space

4Presentation
Make a life-size mock-up of your final design and take photographs of it. Remember that you can take more than one photo to show the different angles and sides of the packaging. Here your presentation skills are vital. How do you present the final mock-up in a photo to reflect the true essence of your design?
