My most recent project was to create a package design, based on a package structure of something I found out in the marketplace. I've loved Target's Choxie brand of treats packaging, so I bought a box of truffles to disassemble and use as a template for my new package design. I recently designed an invitation to my niece's baby shower, with a pink and black Paris theme, so that's where I got my jump start!
I had the artwork printed at Costco, then I attached the print to some black cover stock, and folded & taped it together, adding an acetate window and filling it with black licorice. I thought it came out rather well! I did make 3 changes to the artwork after I assembled it and noticed a couple of small design issues. But that's all part of the design process!
