The Dieline - Package Design
For the people doing package design and the other people who might be interested in package design, I have a really great resource: http://www.thedieline.com/
First of all, I must say that I DEFINITELY know people that work at the wrong hotels in Chicago, because they're going to be having a conference at the Hyatt Chicago (on wacker) in June. Unfortunately, tickets for students are almost $600. BUT! The good news is that their blog is free!
It is a plethora of inspiration for anybody who is interested in package design. Personally, I am a huge fan of looking at beer and alcohol labels, which is how I stumbled upon their blog in the first place. They have literally every kind of package design you could image on there, and aside from just being visual candy they also have descriptions of the projects and more details for most of the projects if you're really nerdy like we are. They even have 'student spotlights' - talk about good resume material for those kids.
