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!).
