Packaging designs

former giff-staffer

 

Hello everyone,

 

Recently we held a packaging competition, which was a real success. Because there are so many of you who are creative buds we thought we would open this blog for those of you who want to continue designing envelopes for us, as we will be changing our envelope designs around every so often, new and funky designs are always welcome and you can be as creative as you like.

 

Remember, this is not a competition just a place where you can send your designs and like last time together with our design agency we will decide our favourites. Being giffgaff, the best ones will get rewarded if your design is chosen to be printed; these will be decided on an ongoing basis.

 

To help keep our brand as perfect as possible we want to share with you a few of our brand guidelines when producing design work.

 

1)      Keeping in line with the logo, the slogan underneath the logo shouldn’t run past the giffgaff text, it should be in line like this.

2)     Also bear in mind that giffgaff logo should be in black or white not any other colours.

3)     g in giffgaff should always be in small caps not large caps

4)     You should use pixels incorporated in your design, ideally all pixels should be the same size and some  

grouped  together and some out there on their own.

 

 

We look forward to receiving new designs in from you all! Have fun being creative!

Oh man, it's a real shame that I'm so busy. Once I get some free time, I'm gonna make you some rocking 3D designs. I'm fine with giving you any 3d models I've made too. I use blender (WWW.blender.org) at home if that helps anyone in the community get started.
