I took a class in 3D packaging design in 2013 and realized that not only did I enjoy designing the outside of the packaging but also the materials and the problem solving that is involved in getting packaging to work such as making a label look good on an oddly shaped bottle.
My efforts with the conical bottles were rewarded by having my design featured on Packaging of the World's website in 2013.
The conical shapes for the bottles were part of the concept based on the name of this product which was a town in ancient Rome that was destroyed as the result of a volcano. That's why I used the conical bottles.
My very first project post graduation made it to Packaging of the World!
For this project, also from 3D packaging design, I chose a designer and then used that designer's signature design elements to create a line of paint. I chose Jean Paul Gaultier and used his stripes and stars to create the label design. I pulled the colors directly from his clothing. I did some extra pieces for the project, the paint lid labels and the paint chips.
The first of my commercial pieces to get on Packaging of the World. This in-house design project was mine from start to finish. I nurtured it and protected from being ruined. You don't have to guess what's in the box.
