On Feb 26th I wrote a post about a new project to design a Video Game Launch Kit. I chose Ms. Pac Man. I must admit since I am not a gamer, I was not excited about this assignment; however, I had so much fun designing this package.
I found a post on instructables.com on how to create a Nintendo Arcade. I used step one of the process in order to create the box.
But I get ahead of myself, it was important for me to brand and market this package to women from 30-40 years of age. So I went shopping.
I went to Five Below, AC Moore and Target.
Once I got home the real work began. I got the ruler out and laid out my goods to take inventory.
After a few hours, lots of bad words, several revised templates, and help from a wonderful assistant, the pieces were cut out.
Once the pieces were put together, I created labels. I found some great images on Vector Lib.
The final package.
I learned a lot from this project.
- Spend money on the good spray paint.
- Sculpey Clay works well.
- A flash drive and Sculpey Clay can be placed in the oven.
- In order for sticker labels to stick on wood, the surface should be smooth and flat – I only sanded the edges.
