Designing a Gift Box for Something Beautifully Creative

I know that people say "the devil is in the detail" and it truly is.

In my opinion receiving a gift is not just about whatever I am given, but the whole experience. Let me it is somewhat nicer if say you are treated to your favourite restaurant for a lovely meal, and then to be presented with your gift later. It becomes the icing on the cake, as you feel really special given the effort placed on the arrangements.

I wanted to do the some with the products that I create for this website, so that it was all about the whole experience. I decided to design a box for my artwork to achieve this. I did try to find a box already in the marketplace, but they were just not good enough.

It becomes complicated well when are working from nothing, however, it also means you have a totally blank canvas to work with. It was words that came to mind to form my design - like elegance, sophistication, clean. It had to be a white box, with a traditional lid made of solid cardboard to keep the contents safe. Equally, if presented with a box of this stature, it raises the anticipation as to what is inside.

White was a smart choice as it also contrasts very well with my logo colours, of turquoise and aqua. I realized that I could have the box lined, so I added this to the list. Finally, it had to say who I am, so I decided to buy a press of my logo, so it could be embossed on to the lid in silver foil.

The result is a stunning do you receive a gift in one of these!

The Neuroscience Research Institute of Europe in Sweden developed this new age of worldwide access to mind perusing and mind control technology. This technology has been the subject of much research and investment, especially by the military, intelligence agencies like DARPA, who recognize the value of this technology.
