Packaging Design Inspiration: thedieline.com
The Dieline is a website, founded by Andrew Gibbs in 2007, which showcases the latest in the world of packaging design. It features a dynamic design which allows visitors to view the site in either a blog or grid format. Several new articles are posted daily, and archives are searchable through categories such as industry, features, and substrate which allows people to find a product design based on a specific material, industry of origin, or type of article.
The design of the website is the perfect frame for all of the content. Article topics range from industry news, to innovative ideas, to student designs. The volume of content they've accumulated from featuring several designs a day since 2007 has created a very comprehensive archive of diverse, well-designed products. It would be a great source of inspiration for anyone in the field or anyone who aspires to be in it. The Dieline also accepts reader submissions, so it's a great way to get something you've designed out where it can be seen. It's an impressive website and I would definitely recommend anyone interested in packaging design to check it out.
