What you’ll learn

  • Produce photorealistic images of their designs as a 3d model
  • Apply advanced textures such as foiling, transparancy and embossing
  • Unwrap 3rd party 3d models in order to apply their own designs

[Update April 18 from Kim: In an effort to give full disclosure to future students I’d like to let you know that I’m undergoing treatment for Stage 4 Lymphoma. I hope and aim to make a full recovery by next year! This means I’m not able to participate as an instructor as much as I’d like to but students have excellent reviews of my courses and ask surprisingly few questions – I hope that means that my courses are complete enough without needing lots of clarification. Please remember there is a money back guarantee so if you purchase my course then decide you would need more instructor input you can utilise that feature. So remember life is short – take the course – learn the skills – make the move – do the thing – eat the cake – and remember to always check that what you are doing makes you happy!]

If you’re a graphic designer or packaging designer you’ve probably realised by now that clients respond better to 3d imagery. Their long awaited business ideas come to life in front of them and often they won’t have the spatial awareness to translate a 2d design to 3d in their mind. 

Being able to produce photorealistic imagery of your designs will therefore take you to another level as a designer.

Perhaps you’ve already explored 3d software, maybe even tried Blender – a FREE powerful 3d modelling software program. But the vast majority of tutorials on the Internet and in books are aimed at modellers, game designers and character designers. Its hard to find quick, simple, focused courses or tutorials that break Blender down to the need-to-know for the graphic or packaging designer.

This course teaches you:

  • The basics of the Blender interface
  • How to navigate in the Blender 3d world
  • How to set up and manipulate a simple object
  • How to apply your design to that object
  • How to set up a really simple photography ‘studio’
  • How to take a photorealistic render shot
  • How to apply advanced textures that are used so often in the design world:
    • Transparent sections/’windows’
    • Foiling
    • Embossing
  • How to find free or cheap 3d models to save you time
  • How to use 3rd party 3d models in order to ‘wrap’ them in your own 2d designs


You are also provided with extensive step-by-step worksheets to follow along with the course and for quick referral after the lessons.

This course assumes you are proficient in creating your own 2d designs in your program of choice, but that you are a complete beginner to 3d modelling.

You will need an adequate Internet connection to watch the video lectures. You will need a printer to print the worksheets. You will need a computer system that can run Blender. And you will need the time and motivation to engage with the course to finish with the start of a great 3d portfolio!

The course is taught by showing you live video screencasts, with me in a little corner screen as I film. When a student asks a question in the course discussion I will often film a video tutorial in response and post it as a bonus lecture.

Some feedback from my students (check the Student Feedback section to verify!)

I have taken this instructors courses before and this one is the best so far. I have been wanting to learn how to do 3d mock-ups for ages but assumed it would take months to learn. I’m still working on my first few designs but I watched the whole course over just a few sessions and have been able to follow everything really well. The worksheets are BRILLIANT and have helped so much, they’re practically a workbook in themselves. Highly recommended!

    I can definitely see this course helping breaking through that initial barrier when it comes to learning a programming language. I’m positive I’ll finish it and hopefully master python by then.

  2. Abdallah Galal Abouhussein

    I would like to share my personnel experience, i`m very pleased and happy for taking this impressive course because Dr. Angela always makes it simple and easy to understand and always makes a precaution section before or after any bug that may appear to some students and also write or record the solution for us, and each word she said is very real and easy to understand.
    Thanks Dr. Angela

    Very good course. Dr Angela explains things very clearly. The exercises are interactive and helpful.

    Angela’s voice is like ASMR in most lessons. So you won’t lose focus?

  4. Jaime Sánchez Blanco

    Every concept is very well explained so you can assimilate it, and the teacher insists in practicing daily to get the habit of programming. It really motivates to keep studying and practicing every day.

  5. Bradley Carouthers

    3 days in and I’ve already learned more than other training programs where I’ve put months in. Her teaching style is both efficient and effective.

    Edit: Now on day 29 and the course has held up my expectations and hopes. The rise in complexity is not too sharp, and every day feels like an accomplishment. Angela takes her time to explain things without rushing, yet is able to pack tons of information in nuggets of time.

    Still recommend supplemental exposure for a more wholesome grasp. Though, this should be quite enough

  6. Tommy Prévost

    Very good course.

    PROs: lots of coding exercises, clear explanations, great examples, adapted to 2021’s reality.

    CONs: past the first 30 lessons, many similar coding hands-on.

  7. Quang Tu

    I love all the lectures and challenges of this course. I finally find myself in love with coding. This is definitely a fun course. Thank you Angela for this great course.

  8. Fortunate Eze

    This course is nothing short of AMAZING. The level of love and sincere desire to see students succeed present in this course is a rare sight. This course is fun, it’s challenging, it’s suspense-filled, it makes you feel good about yourself solving those challenges. You don’t take this course and memorise codes, you take it and you know what you’re doing because you literally do it yourself.

    It couldn’t possibly be any more obvious that Angela brought out her whole heart, time, energy and resources to give us a course that if priced based on it’s value, many of us certainly can’t afford. I mean, she kept advising and encouraging us to keep going, because she knows the road could get bumpy, she made a few jokes and used funny animations so we smile along the way keeping it fun. Why some people can’t see this and would rather subscribe to trying to bend courses to fit their own personal preferences is beyond me, but I guess people will always be people.

    Dear Angela, I cannot speak for everyone but I certainly can speak for myself and I’m saying thank you. The efforts you put into making this course outstanding didn’t go unnoticed.

    Let as many of us as appreciate your efforts make you happy and energize you to create more life changing courses for us.

    Cheers.

    Just the course fits me. Learn by doing, it is easy to start and just follow the flow and at day 15 you realized how to program in Python. Then the magic happen. I am on day 27 and I am looking forward to start a new section everyday.

  10. Caspar Cheng

    Angela is my favourite teacher on Udemy, her courses always come with clear and concise demonstration, make it really easy to understand the content. Meanwhile, she also provide a lot of tips to encourage us moving further on the way of coding. I’m definitely a super fan of her. I had finished her web development boot camp and now I’m learning Python 100 days of code. This course is amazing as she provided one particular project for each day’s learning, which is, really useful and handy. Also, those projects are really interesting and won’t let me feel disappointed about myself. Although some of them are a little bit difficult, they’re still resolvable after some struggling and searching online. I’ll recommend this course for those who really want to learn Python well and write real python projects from scratch!

  11. Jonas Weber

    The course was awesome in the first half! Really helped me to get back to programming and learning new techniques. Also the course got way to much focused on web development in the second half, which I’m not really interested in and is redundand to your dedicated web development course. The lack of videos in the last quarter was rather sad. I really would’ve liked some video explanations for pandas and matplotlib. The challenges and capstone projects were great and challenging!
    All in all I can really recommend this course for beginners and those who want to learn python and/or get back to programming!

  12. Rohit Prasad

    Angela is the best teacher I have ever experienced. The way she explains all the topics and makes use of it in the projects is commendable. Thank you so much Angela for this course.
