Britta burrus design got published!

I could NOT believe my eyes and I am so excited to share the story of how Bb design got published. I have never done anything like this before… but I thought what the heck, might be fun.

About a year ago David Sherwin made a call to designers everywhere through his blog {}. He was in the process of writing a book “Creative Workshop – 80 Challenges to sharpen your design skills”. I emailed him and let him know I was interested, he sent me several challenges to choose from and I chose ‘Totally Cereal’ :).

Totally Cereal
[time] 30 minutes
[topic] Packaging
[description] Write one or two sentences describing a new type of breakfast cereal, including a brand name, audience, and type of store where this product will be sold. Your product must have a special selling point that sets it apart from similar products — e.g. organic, sustainably grown, cage-free, whole grain, and so on. Then spend 30 minutes sketching at least two package designs concepts for this new product.

I don’t do a lot of sketching… I usually start by praying then just jump in and start, I get inspired by fonts, colors, texture. Once in a while I will do a rough sketch to see if layout will work, it’s not always very pretty but def gets the ideas going. 🙂 In this book it is cool to see how every designer gets to the end result in a different way. Guess that is what makes everyone unique. 🙂

Anyway… my challenge was published in his book… another very exciting thing is that it is a HOW Book {} So, have fun checking out the pics… I haven’t read through the whole thing yet, but I think it would be a great design resource. You can purchase it at amazon.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great weekend. — Britta
