  1. Hi, Haven't posted in a while but and don't really know where else to go , if you know a better forum for this please tell me. Currently I work as a product developer/designer, what I mostly do is creating ID designs, how the product shall look and function, but not the mechanical parts nor the final CAD. I work in Sweden but all our factories are located in another country. I am also in charge of all my projects my self (working on a relatively small company). My problem How do you guys specify your ID down to even the smallest parts and on the same time get a good overview of the product, plus having a discussion board about the specification before you have reach a final one? Currently I am using Microsoft Excel were I have columns for parts of the product, pictures and feedback where the factory can reply in, then we are sending this file back and fourth until everything is sorted out. Honestly this feel very stupid, I have felt many times that there must be some sort of documentation software for specifications like this. I am looking for some kind of documentation software, where I can put in notes, add surface drawings, pictures, video and on the same time be able to discuss that with a good overview with the factory that I have sent the specification to. It can be a software or be cloud based solution, doesn't really matter. I have tried Basecamp which is a simple project collaboration tool but it doesn't have all the features that i need. It would be good also if I can manage and give assignments to the factory engineers where i can prioritize specifications that they shall focus on. Is it only me who want this kind of tool? Please point me in the right direction Best regards, Arre

    Package Design

    Hi folks, Been a long time, and my user account was even deleted Anyways I am an industrial designer who hit a problem at work, usually I design various products, but now my boss wants me to design the packaging as well... But I don't really know were to start, since I don't have any education at all in it. For starters I've come up with a really nice designs, which I have got praised for, on the other hand is these designs made in hard paper (very thick paper) and not fold-able, which leads to a lot of "air transportation". And since I don't have any knowledge in paper/package design at all I've hit the wall so to say, I don't really know how to make these nice designs, since the lack of material knowledge (paper in this case) Anyone that is in the same position or have any tips regarding package design, maybe some good books of what you should/shouldn't do when it comes to package design. Best regards, Arre
