ExploreAnywhere Packaging by TheRyanFord ExploreAnywhere Packaging by TheRyanFord
This is the final array of packaging for ExploreAnywhere Software, including CD label design.

These will be packaged in standard DVD cases and will be available at select retail stores.
Each software case is colored differently for easy distinguishing on a shelf, but they all utilize similar designs to be visually cohesive within the brand.

I've left the original packaging design that I did in April (I think it was) up in my gallery for comparison. These packages have come a long way, and the length of time it took was due to some timing constraints on the client's end. Still, it's pretty much done at this point.

Please note that the small rectangle on the back is for a barcode.

awsome.. very clean and direct.. it would defonantly catch my eye on the shelf.
can i ask how you produce these case previews? bit of clever photoshopping or is there a kinda cover preview software that can map the design onto a model or somthing?

I just build up the previews in Photoshop.

my favorite colors, and color combinations! all used in one piece no less XD. you did a great job with the 3D-ness of this, even down to how you have the software CD slightly reflective of the boxes. nice one :thumbsup:.

Very nice. The colors you chose are very pleasing.

Let me make a little guessy, the half toned "shape" at the top right of package represents an enlarged, abstract key cursor? :D

Nope! It's the company's logo. Gotta reinforce it whenever possible, ya know?

mmm. there's something that doesn't quite sit well with me with the colour combinations. i can't really put my finger on what.. but it's something. it may be that some of the covers have quite domineering colours melding into each other, while others have a more placid combination.. giving a balance issue.
but you know, the more i look at this, the more i'm finding peace with it. and i do appreciate your reasoning for the repetition and overlap of colours. you've obviously put a lot of thought into every aspect of the design, and it shines through. not only in the look of the product, but in the stylish presentation of it too.
that.. um.. dot thing. i forget what it's called. anyway, that looks really good. it breaks up the flatness of the cover, and adds textural interest without becoming overbearing or diverting any attention away from the text.

nice work :P
