Dubocq, Edward R.
Offered as an exploratory course in the highly technical field of container and packaging design, emphasis is placed on refined knowledge of the basic techniques used in preparing visuals, color camps, and working drawings. Study of related information such as consumer psychology and color, layout, and lettering is included in this studio oriented course. Basic problems of design, color, balance, and composition as well as functional problems of product size, shelf space, product protection, consumer need, competition, production technique, and expense limitations are dealt with. Requiring no prerequisites, the elective course is open to grades 7-12, and offers the student an overall introduction to the area of commercial art as well as an opportunity to design and create an original example of package design. Package patterns and a resource guide for students and teachers conclude the course description. (MW)
