About This Class
You'll put your new knowledge of package design history, goals, technique, and merchandising to work by re-creating a die for a real cereal box of your choosing.
Master the art of tangible design with packaging expert Trina Bentley’s 55-minute first class on the basics. Perfect for intermediate graphic designers interested in products, it’s a crash course in the discipline’s history, target audiences, unique attributes, and fundamental goals—communicating and grabbing attention—while taking into practical account the confined space of a box, bag, or label.

Very ineresting course, especially because it describes all the technical requirements (design rules, dies, etc.) for a good packaging design.
