With the iPad launched and doing very well, I decided to look for a bit of inspiration for a wallpaper pack I am making (including iPad wallpapers, obviously!) for DesignGiveaways, and I thought I’d share with you a small selection of the many hundreds I looked at. These are all illustrated, square and at approximately 1024×1024 pixels ready to use as your iPad background, whether you’re a landscape or portrait user – or maybe you’re greedy and use both! ;)
Characters have strong attraction in packaging design. Do not underestimate a cute puppy dog character on a piece of packaging because it probably does have an effective power to attract the customers. The existence of nice character design also makes packaging feel more alive and much more fun. It can also turn plain and boring packaging in to new collectible items for the customers.
Since character design is great and useful, let’s learn from some of these examples of nice character design in packaging. Who knows, it might be useful for your next project. And don’t forget to tell us what you think and share more examples on the comments section.
