Package Design Pointers

Package design is a whole new ball game. If you don’t know the way around, you’ll get lost pretty quick. I’ve compiled a list of helpful pointers for when you are creating a package design:

  1. Figure out what it’s for, who it’s for, and why it’s needed.
  2. Research different competitors that are in the area to see what you’re working against.
  3. Gain design inspiration by utilizing google images or Pinterest for unique concepts.
  4. Create a unique, simple, and entertaining package design.
  5. Measure out the dimensions so you know what to look for once you go to print.
  6. Sketch, Sketch, Sketch!
  7. Create a model for yourself so you know how to place the images/text appropriately.

I’m sure I could go on for days, but I will stop while I am ahead. I hope these helpful pointers really help!
