Project II Packaging Project A group of 3-5 students were given the task to collaborate with one another and design packaging out of chipboard, mat board, or heavy Bristol for an array of objects. While going through the ideation phase student must use at least 2 creative methods learned in class. Once narrowed down to a final design the group had to turn it into a laser cut file. To show the final product. Then present the your entire process to the class. As a group we decided to design for the average person going into a deli or cafe to pick up a sandwich. The criteria we need to design for was a sandwich, plate, flatware, and condiments.
Packaging Project The Final As a group we wanted our final product to something easy for you to use in a grab and go situation. So that after you order you would be able throw it in your bag or carry it to your destination. We also wanted it to be something be able to reseal if you decided not to finish your sandwich. The package is able to hold an array of sandwiches, flatware, and condiments. To help cut down on material our group decide to use the package itself as a plate.
