A studio course focusing on three-dimensional structures for a broad range of products that not only protect package contents but also create an experience for the user. Students examine how messages behave when distributed in a three-dimensional space. Conceptual development, prototyping, materials, type, image, layout, design, and form are fully explored to create commercial packaging.
