Product Design

Recommended Posts

Hello.

 

Just wanted to share this quick design made with Affinity Designer.

 

Had an old line of products done with Photoshop and Illustrator. https://www.totalfix.com.mx But now migrating the workflow to Affinity products for Packaging, Branding and promotional materials. Brochures, posters, business cards, etc.

By the way, the Client was looking over the shoulder as I did some adjustments and asked about what software I was using. Had some time to do a little evangelizing of the Affinity Line,. He was happy with the results.

Very nice 3D rendering!

But now I must ask: since Designer has neither a perspective grid feature, nor a vector warping tool, how did you manage to draw your bucket in perspective and then to convincingly warp the product label around the cylindrical form of the bucket?

Hello Mark

 

Actually I just designed the label in Affinity Designer.

I exported it as a texture (png) and mapped it to a 3D model. The render part was done in Cinema 4D and then retouched it in Affinity Photo.

From Cinema I export as a layered PSD file so I have more control of the render passes: Illumination, Color, Shadows Ambient Occlusion, etc.

OK, now it makes sense :D

Well done via clever workflow outside Designer.

Hi, thanks Jowday

Its the same workflow I've been using for a couple of years. But now instead of using Photoshop and Illustrator I'm replacing them with Photo and Designer.

And hopefully will soon start working on a PDF and Print catalog for them using Publisher. Which by the way I just bought  to support Serif and thinking I may never use it in my work.  But now I've been including  it slowly to my workflow (and happy now that I did).

 Perfect Timing.....
