For this project, we learned to print on a 3D object, a package. This printing job had to be a 6 color job, meaning, CMYK + two spot colors. I tried to make many packages before my final one, I thought of making a bag at first that mocks the way plastic bags are like, to connect it to the dukkan section of our shop. Like how kids used to go to the supermarket (dukkan) and by a bag of candy, but it did not work.
I later tried to create a box of candy that I can put mix candy in. We used spot colors to identify the jobs of the lines we created in the file, bleed line, die line, fold line, and glue line. Those four lines are not considered in the 6 colors job, the file must have more than 4 spot colors, this was a bit confusing since the job is only 6 colors and the lines are 4. but we learned that those four are created as CMYK builds spot colors just to identify their jobs and making it easier on the print vendor to do their jobs. and for the design we used CMYK colors, and 2 spot colors, to use them to identify that those parts of the design are different than CMYK, example, Pantone or varnish.
We learned to organize the indesign layers in a way that we makes it easier to work with, every layer has a job that’s responsible of. There is a hard part where we had to implement the logo in our design, i decided to use the one color logo, black logo.
I used Arabic typeface Aref Ruqaa in the design I made, which is a primary typeface in the brand. Marwa and I decided to use the secondary colors of the brand, the colors that we did not use in the logo because it has more variety and options, we connected both of our packages with one color, purple, and designed pattern and stripes. My package consists of two parts, a cover box and an inner box. In printing, we had to fix the images in the files to be 300 dpi and its effective ppi to be 100%, we do it this way by resizing the image in indesign to be the size I want, and then change the percentage of the size of the image in photoshop, making sure that it is 300 dpi.
The final design of my package is a candy box.
