DropBOB commissioned project – Pyramid Head – Packing and shipping!

Shipping is often overlooked by new businesses and startups. But it’s actually one of the most important things to review and plan for. I actually custom designed my shipping box so that I could ship as efficiently as possible. Often, if you are stuck using a standard box, you end up filling it with too much filler, and you pay (and charge) too much for what you’re shipping.
So when I was designing the merchandise, I fully thought out the packing and shipping situation, all in virtual reality!
Turns out I was only half right. Although, the CAD drawing below probably is the “cleanest” packing solution, it leaves way too much mess for the end user to assemble … Think Ikea dresser … do you really want to break it down to the smallest pieces.
As I was packing the product, I tried something new … I kept the larger pieces assembled and played a little game of tetris … oo, oo, I have a GIF for that .
I was able to fit all the pieces, while keeping the helmet in only 4 pieces. That was awesome! I also made an assemble video which I will upload to Youtube prior to item delivery (after some heavy editing).

 

I also want to make sure to keep my branding going strong. I’m a new business and this really does help me keep focus and help define my brand! I’m trying to associate my logo with meticulously and intelligently designed creations. Don’t worry, I keep the logos hidden on the inside … like a well tailored suit. This is for you to appreciate and feel proud of!
I’ve put more end user design and durability features into this thing than I would normally for myself. I really do try to design for the worst and try to think of ways to improve at every chance. So don’t hesitate to leave honest feedback.
Cheers,

-Bobby
