How beyourownit started their print or packaging design journey

Company name

Be Your Own IT

Overview

Be Your Own IT exists to help people use and repair computers.

Be Your Own IT is the #1 source to learn how to use and repair computers. Whether someone is in high school, coming out of college, changing careers, or even coming out of retirement, we have the information they need to learn advanced computer repair.

We teach them what they need to know to fix their own computer or even start their own PC repair business.

Our online community offers tons of free videos, a forum, and free email, chat, and phone support.

We have a DVD Home Study Course for people that want to learn how to fix computers and even start their own pc repair business. Here is a link to the current course: http://www.beyourownit.com/computer…ourse.html

This contest is to create a packaging design for the new 2011 course. It will consist of a folding box that contains 6 DVDs and a Handbook.

We need you to create designs for:
1) Folding Box Insert
2) DVDs
3) Handbook

The full design brief with dimensions and required text is attached. The Requirements text box wasn't big enough.

Our logo and fonts associated with the logo are attached.

Also attached is a blank Folding Box and Handbook, to give you an idea of what they look like.

Be Creative!

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

90% Men
85% between the ages of 35-64. 45-54 being the largest segment
Mostly High School graduates and some college. Few have college degrees.

Most people who buy the course do so because they want to fix their own computer. The next motivation is to make some extra money fixing computers on the side, or perhaps even starting their own business.
