Add a fill colour

A fill colour is a colour that covers the entire area of a surface. Fill colours are a great way to create bold branded packaging designs. To add a fill colour in Studio:

  1. Click the colour palette icon in the top toolbar.
  2. Choose a colour using either:
    1. the colour picker
    2. a HEX colour code
    3. an RGB colour code
    4. a CMYK colour code
  3. Click Apply.

Note: If you have a Pantone reference, you can add it in the field underneath the colour picker. Our artwork team will then apply it later during proofing. Whilst in Studio, however, you can only choose colours from other palettes.

Add an image

With Studio, an image is any asset in one of the following formats: JPEG, PNG, SVG. This means you can add pictures as well as other assets like wordmarks and text vectors. To add an image:

  1. Click the picture icon in the top toolbar.
  2. Select your image.
  3. Click Open.

Once your image has loaded, you can move, scale and rotate it using the Select tool (cursor icon). You can add multiple images to your design.

Switch between 2D and 3D view

In 2D view, you can add assets, scale and rotate them, add colours and more. In 3D view, you can preview your packaging as an interactive prototype. This allows you to visualise how your design will appear in real life. Here’s how to select a view:

  1. For 2D view, select the unfolded box icon in the bottom toolbar.
  2. For 3D view, select the folded box icon in the bottom toolbar.

Note: When one view is selected, you can interact with the other view in the bottom right corner of the screen.
