Graphic Design / Packaging Crossover... Thoughts? - image 1 - student project

Graphic design often has crossovers with other disciplines... What do you think of the potential crossover with Packaging design? What's your process, what tools do you use?

The project I'm sharing here is commission to create both a Champagne, and a non alcholic sparking wine (aimed at consumers in the UAE). The flat design was all created in Adobe Illustrator, with the 3D mock-ups created in Adobe Dimension.

Have you ever used Adobe Dimension? If not, try it! I quote from the Adobe website; "Dimension makes it easy to build brand visualizations, product mockups, packaging designs, spatial designs, and other creative work. ..."

So it's possible to get stunning, photo realistic results even if you have little or no knowledge of 3D modelling, and if you find the 3D workspace in Photoshop daunting.

Share your thoughts and experiences!
