About This Class


Who loves chocolate? I most certainly do. Who wants to learn how to design a chocolate bar? 

Packaging design is an essential part of being a professional designer, and going through the whole process with me, from idea to finished product is the whole idea behind this class.

I wanted to walk those who have not done a package design through the entire brainstorming process, and getting you to think in 3-D. We will look at a real chocolate bar wrapper to get a sense how to design a front and a back and create a layered and sophisticated design.

We will block and layout our design using Adobe Illustrator and we will work with patterns to create one that will match our theme for our chocolate bar. We will even use a mock-up in Photoshop to apply our bar design to present in our portfolio or to a client for approval.

Lastly, we will take our final design and make it ready for the printer, including how to export files and how to separate our design so we can get our stickers and wrapper sent off to become a reality.

I recommend this class for any aspiring designer who is interested in packaging design and how to create tactile product that is both eye-catching and reaches it’s target audience in terms of appeal and design.
