Dawnshield in a Box by DawnPaladin Dawnshield in a Box by DawnPaladin
Project 1 for 3D Packaging: Put yourself in a box. A four-inch box, to be precise.

Well, if I'm going to fit in a box that small, it'd better be a mighty good-looking box!

It didn't take long to decide that the box's design needed to include my dawnshield logo, and I quickly decided I wanted it to glow from within. That put more constraints on its design; I needed to fit a battery case and an LED inside, while still using a tapering design. In addition to the cardstock paper, the LED, the batteries, and their case, I ended up buying a soldering kit and teaching myself soldering for this project. You never know where a design will take you, I guess. :-) (Later on I discovered that I could have just taped a watch battery to the LED, which would have made things a lot easier. Ah well, the light will last longer this way!)

This is great! It's just the kind of thing that'll get you a lot of attention when looking for work. Adding the light is a great touch! I also enjoy the unique shape of the box. It compliments your logo very well. I feel that you could clean up the edges a bit as far as presentation goes, but other then that it's really nice work. It's cool that you could also learn a new skill from all of this too.
