Auckland: Packaging workshop

Join talented cardboard engineer, Mat Bogust, for this one-day Auckland workshop all about packaging and innovative 3D design

Workshop summary:

  • Intro and presentation from Mat about his work, his history, the set up of Think Packaging and the work created there.
  • The core skills associated with cardboard engineering, the do’s and the don’ts, and the common misconceptions of a ‘box designer’ (it’s hip to be square!).
  • How to create the perfect hand cut sample/mockup and why it matters so much. Dielines created at Think Packaging will be used to create your own samples in various materials and stocks — with mentoring from Mat. Bring along your tools…
  • Q&A, debriefing and celebratory beers!

You will need to bring:
Pencil, pen, notepad
Craft knife – preferably with snap blades
Your preferred creasing tool (a ballpoint pen is good)
Metal ruler
Masking tape

Double sided tape
Plasters (just in case!)
