This project did not go the way I wanted. I feel as if it’s only half done and the color was applied too soon. That said the original idea was to make a kit for a young aspiring architect to learn the art of making maquettes or architectural models. Since this is a very technical skill for an architect to have along with drafting I wanted the package to have the very industrial feel while remaining somewhat playful as this was a kit intended for older children. I employed the use of blue prints and blueprint symbols to create a surface design on different sides of the box. On the front is a photograph of an actual model I built of a mid-century home. I like the individual parts of my gabled box design, even if the package design still requires more work to reach a completed stage. I am proud of the model. I learned a lot looking at how architectural designers uses three-dimensional construction to illustrate renderings and problem solve. This translates directly to package design and helped me to think of package construction differently.
