OUGD603 — Brief 07 - Restrap Packaging — Boards


I would consider this brief to be one of my most successful in the three years of the programme. Working with Nathan on the Halleycat branding proved to him what I was capable of and since then I have been hired as their in-house designer which Catalogue were doing before I was asked.

This brief has allowed me to rework existing packaging and develop completely new concepts for a real-life business who's products are sold all over the world both online and in retail shops.

My skills in art working with existing brand guidelines has improved drastically thanks to the amount of work I have done with Restrap, as well as my experience in packaging development, design and setting up for mass-printing.

One of the things I have found out about myself from this brief is one of my favourite parts of graphic design is watching the work you create come to life into physical products and every time I have seen a new piece of packaging go from notebook sketches to finished built packaging solutions I have felt a great sense of pride and excitement.

Nathan at Restrap has become a professional contact that will continue to be a great friend and one that I hope to work with for a long time on keeping the visual elements of Restrap up to scratch.
