Developing the Packaging

To begin I decided that I needed to find a font similar to the text used in the Barbie logo, I found a number of different ones but decided to opt for ‘Barbie MediumItallic’. I have experimented with this font using Illustrator, compared it to the original and it’s safe to say that they are identical.

The height of the average Barbie doll is around 12inch, I have checked and mine are the same, I also took a measurement of the widest part (hand to hand when arms are down) which was 4inch this was an important step so that I can establish what size my packaging needs to be.

I do not want too much excess room in the box itself as their is no need for this and therefore I feel that as long as there is an extra inch each way it will keep the design looking neat but will allow enough room to be easily accessible.

The packaging – 13inch height, 5inch width, 4 inch depth
