Final touches to the packaging!

After some comments about the final products, we decided to add an aesthetic detail to them. So.

Back to the good old cutting board.

We decided to make the labels more substantial , and make a nice window to the titles. Alex is good at being precise with measurements.. Me on the other hand, I was happy to cut and fold. Measurements are not my friend.

Also, we had some fun with the final Look again glasses… Don’t tell.

Printing and box making…

So today was a full day of work. 8 am till 9pm!

Up early to write the summary of our product, as well as finalise the label designs and layout for the boxes. I also called Alex to check up on her and the Map printing process. When the file size was huge, I tried to prep the file for print through inDesign… which proved to be a lot harder that it should be, with all the layers Alex had done. My computer was sputtering and gasping trying to save the files.. 2 hours later Alex had managed to fix a file for print, and hey presto it was on it’s way.

I was also corresponding with Pi Mei about the quotes for the fortune cookies. We wanted to emphasise a word per quote, so I went through the quotes Vanja collected and selected the word, emailing Pi Mei the details.

As for me, it was the good old DMW. Printing out the booklet for Roll with It was interesting. I’d always sent files to print during my professional career, but never knew how they lined the pages correctly (hey, every day is a school day)

Then a couple of hours later, passed by Yiche at the 3D workshop to check he was doing alright and didn’t need help before going home to meet Alex to finish of cutting and pasting and “boxing”.

Full day!

Use this – Create that – Final products (nearly)

So, after a lot of weight lifting and running around and printing and maps and lack of ability to save certain files, we got our products done and dusted (minus 2 staples, and the box of dice and glasses, that iare with Yiche for finishing touches.)

Insipration_Identity_Packaging_Perfume Bottle by Comme des garcons

 

 

This Perfume Bottle by Comme des garcons designed by painter  Lindy Foss-Quillet and carpenter Frederic Couderc, is very different and caught my eye for many reason, i like the whole language of the type, but mainly the structure around the bottle, i love how raw it is with the way it is made on full view. very nice piece of design!
