Join Claudia McCue for an in-depth discussion in this video What I hope you've learned in this course, part of Print Production: Packaging.
Over recent years it's true that forms…of printing have diminished, thanks in part to…glowing screens like the one you're viewing right…now, but packaging can't be replaced by pixels.…If you love printing as I do, packaging might be a natural fit for you.…It's a wonderful combination of design and structure.…It gives you the opportunity to create visuals for a three…dimensional piece.That people will not just view, they'll pick it up and…touch it.…In this course, I hope I fired your…imagination a bit and perhaps made you start…thinking about how a two dimensional design translates…to a package that exists in three dimensions.…
I also hope that this course has given you an appreciation for packaging in general.…In fact, I'm willing to bet that you'll never…look at your cereal box the same way again.…
