Design Exercise no 29 – Using Adobe Dimension & Photoshop To Create Striking Packaging



BRIEF
—–
Create a colour-stream background using an image in Photoshop, apply it to packaging in Illustrator and then create a 3D mock-up of your packaging in Adobe Dimesion.

BEGINNER
——–
Select an image and create a colour-stream background in Photoshop. Apply this background on packaging of your choice and then use Adobe Dimension to create a 3D realistic mockup of the packaging. Render your image as a Photoshop file.

INTERMEDIATE
————
Select an image and create a colour-stream background in Photoshop. Apply this background on packaging of your choice and then use Adobe Dimension to create a 3D realistic mockup of the packaging. Render your image as a Photoshop file.

ADVANCED
——–
Select 3 images and create contrasting colour-stream backgrounds in Photoshop for all 3. Apply these backgrounds on packaging of your choice (a series of 3 packs/bottles) and then use Adobe Dimension to make a 3D realistic mockup of the packaging. Play with different camera angles and views, and render your favourites as Photoshop files. Take one of the packs and apply the colour-stream Photoshop image to the background of the scene in Dimension. Change the angle of the camera so the pack lies flat and is viewed from above. Render this version too as a Photoshop file.

CONSTRAINTS
———–
Use Adobe Photoshop to create your background design using the method shown, and Adobe Dimension to create your 3D photorealistic mockup.

GOALS
—–
Create a photorealistic mockup showcasing a label or decal on an object with coloured background in Dimension. Use your Photoshop image as the background for your bottle/pack, and also play with camera angles and views.

TIME ALLOWED
————
60 Minutes for Beginner: create a Photoshop background to use on a label/packaging. Apply this to your chosen object in Adobe Dimension. Preview and render your scene. 90 Minutes for intermediate: create 3 different Photoshop backgrounds to use on a label/packaging. Apply these to your chosen object in Adobe Dimension. Explore camera angles and views. Preview and render a few different views of your scene. 90 Minutes for advanced: create 3 different Photoshop backgrounds to use on a label/packaging. Apply these to your chosen object in Adobe Dimension. Explore camera angles and views. Preview and render a few different views of your scene. Add pack background image as background to your scene and change view of pack to looking from above. Preview and render. The preview and rendering stage does not need to fit into the allocated time allowed – a higher resolution image will take longer to preview and render.
