Featured: Packaging Structures – The Book has arrived!

Back in February, I posted about my work being featured in a Packaging book and I managed to persuade the publishers to send me a copy for free. Well, I thought it was too good to be true after nearly 2 months and no sign of a book but the other Thursday, it arrived!

I had a quick peek inside but it was only today that I finally got around to having a proper drool over it because I’ve been so busy…

I find the publication style a bit odd – it’s hardbound but the cover is about an inch smaller than the main feature pages.

At the front (the same size as the cover) there is a designer index with bibliographies of all featured. Then it leads onto the bigger pages, with the work:

My spread is pages 186-187.

It feels really weird, but good to be a published designer already at this early stage in my career – I feel really privileged! I don’t really like the piece of work anymore (it was a long time ago – college ’10!) but it is very exciting to be recognised amongst some really interesting packaging concepts. Who wants to borrow the book then?

I was a bit shocked when I saw it was worth ¥300.00 on Sendpoint’s website but then I googled how many ¥ a loaf of bread is worth and realised that it wasn’t as steep as it first seemed!  I’ve found the book is available to pre-order on Amazon for just short of £22, so buy it – and if you ask me nicely, I might even sign it for you… Just kidding – I’m not a diva!

    I love well designed packaging. I was looking at this cardboard basket that goes to my 4 year old’s board game and I thought it was the coolest thing. I know, so weird. Its the simple things. Congratulations on being published!

    Hi, concrats! They just contacted me as well to get some work published. I was wondering if you have encountered any problems concerning the rights of your images, as they do not mention anything about it. They might well sell them on to other publishers…Maybe I should be more trusting but there are so many scams going on, and people trying to make money… you never know.
