  • Design ChallengeDecide on a product that you would like to design new die cut packaging.Design the shape of your product in Inventor and put on a Title BlockDesign a simple die cut package that is made to fit onto one piece of 8.5 x 11 paper.Design the Graphics that will be included on the box designUse folding, cutting and scoring techniques to simulate a die-cut cardboard package. You must have a specific product in mind for your design.

  • Challenge ContinuedSketch your box design on graph paper using a ruler. Remember measurements must be exact or else the box does not work.Once design is approved, you will sketch the final in Autocad.The Autocad sketch will then be imported into Photoshop where you will incorporate the graphic design for your package design.Print your graphic design for your package on a piece of paper and adhere it to the cardboard box design.

  • Ergonomics- is theaspect of design orengineeringconcerned with human needsand human form. The field is also calledhuman engineering or human factor engineering. Aesthetics-(or esthetics) the study of the mind and emotions in relation to the sense of beauty. The way someone perceives the world visually.

  • Criteria/ ConstraintsThe die cut box must fit on an 8.5x11 paper.The die cut must have fold lines, cut lines, flaps for tucking and gluing.The die cut must have a creative motif that pertains to the product and die cut that you are designing.Must also include the name of the product, where it was made, how much it cost, the bar code, and any warnings and/or instructions.

  • Criteria ContinuedThe Graphic Design is done in Photoshop and must include use of EDIT ->copy/ paste/transform Brush tool, pencil tool,
