Here are some basic guidelines that should help inspire you and ensure your design has a winning chance.
Think commercially: Ensure your design can appeal to a broad audience, you like it but will thousands of potential buyers.
Be original: Is your design innovative, creative and never been seen before?
Colour confidence:Think about the shelf impact of your design, what will make it stand out above the rest?
Scale and Placement: Placement of images/colour can ensure originality and the scale is significantly important to shelf impact and usability.
User Friendly: Please use images that can be printed in a commercial world. No guns/ cigarettes/ nudity boring I know but we must be PC.
And finally, don't forget to add a brief description of your design.Tell us about your inspirations and thought processes.
