Students in this course will journey through the inner workings of the entire packaging design process from creative brief and conceptual ideation to the development of a print-ready design file. Through a series of case studies and practical experiences, students will explore the boundaries of designing for packaging and will learn the foundational concepts, principles and strategies. Projects include the creation of a final assembled package design that can be understood in the context of a merchandized retail space. Students learn how to design for three dimensions, make a product stand out on a shelf, and setup final print-ready packaging design files. They also develop an understanding of the hierarchy of information in a packaging context.
