    Package Design?

    I see. So am I right in saying that there are different retailers buying the same product and packaging and then they send it to a graphic designer to make it look different? Eg a retailer buys toothbrushes, with their custom fit plain packaging. They then send it off for the graphics.

    Package Design?

    Hi Paul, Thanks for the post. I've only just seen it as I didn't get an email notification. So the majority of your work focuses on only the graphics and not the packaging form. My background is product design too, which is why I'm looking for a career that marries the two sides together. In...

    Thumbnail rollover - transition styles?

    Hi all. I'm looking for some inspiration for thumbnail rollover transitions. Just thought I'd throw it out there in case someone sparks interest. It's for a minimalist site. I'd like the other thumbs to be clearly visible, and I'm not so keen when the rollover lowers the thumbnail's opacity...
