...but if you’re creating for the most wanted, you should have it at 326ppi:

Retina Ready User Interfaces suitable for Apple iOS. These are full User Interface layouts or collections that are in 326ppi format. You may include a 72ppi version too, but we are specifically requesting 326ppi format graphical interfaces.

@EladChai Distort works really well, too :) You could use the box that’s similar on a layer behind, and start adjusting the panels on top of it using distort, then just remove the layer when finished..works well for me. Don’t forget to add a little realism with shadows and highlights once it’s put together, too. Good luck!

Posting an image and linking to the vid is the only way I’ve seen it done here. Don’t think GR allows you to embed..

Another great resource is The Dieline ..it’s the #1 packaging blog online, so you should be able to find just about anything there :)

Hey guys, Just wanted to quickly pop in here to let everyone know that we’re going to be adjusting the prices in the packaging category to try and compensate for the extra work involved with creating for the category. And depending on the category’s results we may need to adjust the prices a bit more.

Thanks Mark! Great news!

I have my BFA in graphic design from the Savannah College of Art and Design. It all kind of worked out in an interesting way though.

At the end of high school I was really trying to figure out what I wanted to do. I had always doodled and drawn, and practiced my handwriting to no end growing up, but everyone always says you’ll starve if you go down that road, so I looked for others to walk down. I was pretty good at math, so I thought about being a math teacher for a little while, then decided maybe pharmacy would be a good challenge. I interned at two pharmacies, and visited a few colleges that focused on pharmacy majors. After my internships, I had a feeling of..well, yea, I can do it, but I’m not that excited about it.

I was talking this over with my high school bowling coach one day when we were waiting to go to practice, and I admitted how I always wanted to be an artist growing up. She recommended I try out a community college close to where I lived that had one of the best graphic design two year programs in upstate NY. I applied and even nabbed a full tuition scholarship because of my high school grades. I breezed through the program thinking I was just learning how to doodle better, and didn’t notice how much I was really learning because I was enjoying it so much. I graduated at the top of the program, which got me a partial scholarship to the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD).

I moved from NY to Georgia not knowing anyone, but excited to escape NY winters. Those two years at SCAD were super intense..the most challenging school I’ve ever attempted. It was amazing being around so many other really talented designers, and everything I’ve learned I have used in the past four years since graduating. I have more debt than I would like, but to be honest, I really don’t regret my decision and would make the same decisions if I had to do it over again.

I think the most important thing though, is that I didn’t let learning stop there, which is why I have so much respect for self taught designers. No one was ever forcing you to get up to class to learn new things – you did it because it was in you the whole time and you wanted that greatness. I wanted to improve on the program skills I had built through college, which is how I found psdtuts and many other tutorial sites, and inevitably landed here on graphic river. It’s been a pretty good ride. I always think back to that conversation with my bowling coach though..if that hadn’t happened, I’d likely be passing out prescriptions..or I would get to this point eventually, after taking a veryyy long and windy road to get here.

I know support sometimes gets a bad rep in the forums, but I’ve got to say, I couldn’t be happier with them.

One of my items got ripped off for the first time – like, shamelessly ripped off. Once I got over the fact someone could actually do that, I considered my options.
  • Hunt the kid down (because we all know real adults have a better conscience than that)
  • Comments galore on the item (which I know would get ‘reported’ but alas, I could have some fun there)
  • Email the kid using the mom voice, i.e. you should be ashamed of yourself! (this might have happened)
  • Contact Support

So, I drafted my first DMCA Notice, signed it, scanned it, and sent it along with a farewell-to-your-file kiss. In my ‘ok, now I just have to patiently wait and hope no one else buys the item’ moment, I sent out a little tweet to support. Within 24 hours, support tweeted me back, asked me my support ticket #, and that file is finally removed :)Thanks support, you guys rock.

My only suggestion with this being my first DMCA experience, is wishing I could apply a high priority to copyright infringements when submitting a support ticket. I hated seeing the file up and hated even more that someone could purchase the file while I waited for resolve.

Anyway, I would hate to be that kid’s karma :)
