  1. Descriptive Geometry • PACKAGE DESIGN

  2. Package Design Goals

  3. Package Design “It is the pervading law of all things organic...Of all true manifestations of the head, of the heart, of the soul, that life is recognizable in its expression, that form ever follows function.” - Louis Sullivan, architect

  4. Package Design • When Form does NOT follow Function

  5. Package Design History “Histories make men wise; poets, witty; the mathematics, subtle; philosophy, deep; logic and rhetoric, able to contend.” - Francis Bacon (1561-1626)

  6. Package Design History

  7. Package Design Common Materials

  8. Package Design Common Materials • The majority of container work uses paperboard / cardboardbecause: • Its base (wood pulp) is a renewable resource • It can be recycled / reused • Cost-effective • Environment-friendly • most accessible medium • Easily manipulated by hand • Endless design opportunities & potentials For the purposes of this class, we’ll be using & talking exclusively about paperboard / cardboard

  9. Package Design Paradigms paradigm: 1. A typical example of something; 2. an example that serves as a pattern or model from something, especially one that forms the basis of a methodology or theory.

  10. Package Design Paradigms • BOX

  11. Package Design Paradigms • PYRAMID

  12. Package Design Paradigms • CONE

  13. Package Design Paradigms • CYLINDER

  14. Package Design Processes “When we approach a new package project, the first question we ask ourselves is, ‘How can we do this differently?’ We’re not looking for the obvious solution. We’re looking for the creative one.” - Sol Lang, Creative Director Crayon Design Group • DIE CUTTING • POP-UPS • SPECIAL CLOSURES

  15. Package Design Processes • DIE CUTTING • Adds depth, texture and information • Draws audience into the contents • Compelling visual element that brings negative space into the design • When designing: • Is the die cut necessary? • Does it create a strong element within the overall design? • Does it engage the viewer in a way not possible without the cut? • Does the cut reveal relevant & interesting information inside the package? • Be sure the cut does not compromise the strength of the package

  16. Package Design Processes • POP-UPS • Called “paper engineering” • An interactive section that adds a sense of surprise & fun • Labor intensive & costly • Adds a 3-D aspect to communicate more information than static images • When designing: • Learn from “reverse engineering” (by disassembling examples) • Requires trial & error investigations • Pop-up CD Design

  17. Package Design Processes • SPECIAL CLOSURES • Adds to the visual & tactile experience • Has a tendency to elevate the craft • When designing: • The variations are limitless • Design by Jessica Baechle

  18. Package Design Graphics “The front fights for out interest while the back reassures us that our choice is a sound one.” - ChuckGroth • Mapping a Package

  19. Design Principles

  20. Package Design Steps • Sketch all ideas at every stage of the design process!

  21. Package Design Examples • Design Concept
