Inspiration for Package Design

Package design can be fraught with challenges. It has to be an attention grabber, it needs to look good and make consumers want to buy it or learn more about it. For inspiration, pick up a copy of For Sale: Over 200 Innovative Solutions in Packaging Design by John Foster. This $26 book features many successful designs for CDs, books, beverages, and other products, and gives you insight into the designer’s creative process.

Other useful resources include 100 Visual Packaging & Labels by Ann Ford and 100 Visual Formats, Folds, & Bindings by Matt Woolman.
