Join Claudia McCue for an in-depth discussion in this video About the exercise files, part of Print Production: Packaging.
If you're a premium member of lynda.com, you have access to the exercise files I'll be using. They can be found in the exercise files tab on the main page of this course. You'll find exercise files for each chapter within the exercise files folder, so you can follow along with the same project that I'm working on. Now, if you don't have access to the exercise files, you can still follow along. You can use your own files, or you might want to create some files from scratch. Now, to get the most our of the exercise files you should be familiar with the tools in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop and InDesign.
So, now you should be ready to begin exploring packaging concepts and design.
