This morning I stumbled on a great classroom project that your design and art students are sure to love. The tutorial was produced by the creative team over at Spoon Graphics (which happens to have many great tutorials) and details how to construct a downloadable flat pack toy.
The blog post outlines the design process and Adobe Illustrator techniques that are necessary to build the toy. What I like so much about the tutorial is the problem solving that goes into the design process. Read between the lines and you will even find a math lesson hidden in this gem.
Although the tutorial uses Adobe Illustrator to design and layout the toy, you could easily adapt the instructions to Photoshop and/or InDesign.
Get the directions.
