I'm happy to share with you something that I'm really proud of. After months of studying and true commitment, I now proudly have a certificate in packaging science by The Packaging School! As a graphic designer who is passionate about packaging design, I wanted to complement my graphic expertise by raising my packaging IQ in the technical and business sides of this very rich field. So, The Packaging School's online extensive course that covers the material, methods and machinery behind packaging seemed like the perfect match. I now know a lot more about what takes to create a successful packaging. I know how paper, metal and glass are made, what kinds of tests and regulations a packaging has to go through in the distribution system and how sustainability could be approached every step of the way! A big thank you to every team member who I had the chance to interact with during this program: Diana Whitaker, Julie Rice Suggs, PhD, Andrew Hurley, PhD and Drew Felty. You were all very supportive and nice and I really appreciated your efforts in making this experience as smooth as possible.
