Phase 1: Packaging Project for Sears-Craftsman

Goal : enhance CG renders and make high-quality images with hyper-realistic surfaces. 


As the Senior Level Designer, I created final renders using Photoshop. I layered complex CG outputs, color  and perspective effects, lighting and environmental lighting methods. The final outputs were placed on the final  carton Die art.

There were 5 separate products, each with different packaging artwork. I helped coordinate all designs with agencies and production teams.

Phase 2: Layout, Graphics and QC for Carton Dieline.

Part of the project involved illustrating and mocking up the product 'look' for Stakeholders to review and give feedback. My design motive was clean, modern and health-inspired look. My research and ideations helped tell the brand story, customer voice and visual designs.
