Learning Typography

Packaging 101.01

When I start a project, I ask myself, “do I have everything I need to do this job?” Name, product number, specifications, instructions, regulatory text, company information, UPC number, etc.

Information please…

Do I understand the project? Is it a matter of recreating an existing package or am I reinventing the wheel?

Who’s in charge? Who do I go to for questions? Who will give me final approval?

Who will be producing/printing this?

I’m sure there are more and will add to this in the future. I have other Packaging 101 pages including: Working with PDFs, Typography, Regulatory, Aerosol Basics, Understanding Color, Flexography, etc.

I live with my lovely wife (since August 12, 2017) Breda. She's a musician and teaches K-4 music. My boomerang son Jack recently moved out, he's a fantastic chef and we miss his cooking.
November 2020 marks 30 years living in and restoring my old house. I have an awesome workshop where I'm currently building kitchen cabinets. My fifties have been my happiest decade.
No drama here - but a lot of music and laughter.
