For this project, my class was given an assignment directly from the design team at DeWalt located in Towson, MD. Our first task was to redesign their "good, better, best" drill bit packaging. The second task was to take our redesign and change their typeface (Helvetica Neue) to a different one (I chose Avenir Next Condensed and change one of their colors). This project taught me that even though brand guidelines can be very strict, there is still room for creativity.
