Project 3: Packaging Design

  1. What did you learn? I learned how to deconstruct and reconstruct a previous design in order to create a packaging design that I was satisfied with.
  2. What was easy? The easiest part of this project was deciding what the color scheme and logo was going to be centered around/based off of. The logos and posters used for the merch originate from my own social media brand online.
  3. What was challenging? The most challenging part was the tedious process of being able to successfully deconstruct a package in illustrator.
  4. How could your submission be improved? I think my submission could be improved by maybe upscaling my final design and being more precise with the cutouts.
  5. How could the professor improve the assignment? I think the assignment could be improved if more unique designs were shown off or modeled in class.
  6. How might you apply your knowledge in future assignments or work scenarios?  I now have an understanding of how to use the proper layout and formatting in Illustrator to achieve a folding design that can be completed to form a package design.
  7. How did a specific reading or video inspire or help you? I watched this video that walked through the steps of creating a design in Cricut for inspiration:
