About This Class

Join Evelio Mattos — editor in chief of beloved packaging design blog The Dieline — for a hands-on, one-hour class that gets to the heart of crafting packaging for real-world products!

Creators, makers, and designers of all levels will love learning how to sketch an "unveiling experience" — unlocking the skills to get ideas down on paper and convey form, function, and features in a retail space.

Key lessons cover sketching, concept development, communicating 3-point perspective, and client presentation — all peppered with valuable insights into the print and packaging industries.

All you need to get started is a pencil or pen! By the end, you'll have an inside look at the creative process of an industry pro, and a tangible series of sketches to start bringing your packaging concept to life.
