The crease gives the box shape. would you just use a line?

OK, here’s the final version. Like it? I’m going to do 4 colours and 3 sizes plus vector formats.

The vanishing point is still way off; the back corner looks higher than all the rest. Ideally it needs to be the same ‘diamond’ shape the base is if it is an actual cube.

The shading is OK but not accurate – best thing to do is create a light beam in a cone shape from the top left corner and the see where the light would ‘hit’ and shade accordingly. Inside the box looks about right it’s just the corners of the lips of the box and under them which is not quite right.

Personal opinion!

I agree with JackHowell on the vanishing point. And I think you should make the gradients more subtle, they’re a little distracting right now. Make the black a dark grey and the white a light grey.

Other than that I like it!

For the alignment of the text you have it aligned to the bottom of the box which is partically ok. What you should do is create a guide line in a new layer along the bottom and slide that up to the bottom of the text. Then create another line across the top of the box on that side and make them long enough that they cross. Move the top line down and the text should be touching both lines. You’ll need to render the text and adjust using the points.

While writing this I notice that your perspective along the top of the box above the font is incorrect as well. It’s giving the allusion that the front left side of the box is smaller than any other side.

If I have a minute I can set up a guide frame amd post it for you.

If you take a look at this image it shows how to line up the edges. I did it quick so mine isn’t at angled as yours but I thought this might give you an idea on how to line up the text.

Yes, it was just an error.

However you just showed me an image very simmilar to how i constructed the boxes. It’s much easier than rotoating and shearing. Fixed now.

BTW : Thanks for all the constructive critisism. Also, the box doesn’t actually have any real perspective. The shapes are perfect diamons and rombuses.

That might be where you are missing out on some really good impact!

It seems as if you are showing an orthrographic view of the box. This is the 3D format used in engineering and technical drawings. The sides run parallel instead of converging to a vanishing point. If this is true, then check the box insides, they seem to be off-parallel. If it was meant to be a perspective design, then Everything needs to converge to a vanishing point as mentioned in some of the replies.

The new drop shadow is much better in the lighter mode.
