Handmade Packaging Design – The importance of incorporating artisanal elements into your design work
Creating handmade elements are good for the designer’s soul. It’s good for business too, as more people crave the textures, imperfections and warmth of hand-made objects, reconnecting them with the long line of artists before them and breaking out of the computer box and getting their hands dirty. Andy Kurtts, Creative Director and Owner of Buttermilk Creative, will walk the audience through a few real world examples from his work where he was able to incorporate elements as well as share ways to get your own hands dirty.
