CanCreator, the world’s first free online drinks can design app, has been launched by UK Can Makers, the trade body representing drinks can manufacturers in the UK.
The free to download app allows users to design can brands in different styles, sizes and finishes.
Geoff Courtney, chairman of the UK Can Makers, said: “Packaging plays such a vital role in making products stand out on shelf, and drinks cans offer so many possibilities. We wanted to make exploring and showcasing drinks can designs easy, so we worked closely with designers to create an app that would let them see for themselves without any hassle.
“Initial feedback has been very positive and we hope everyone finds it a useful tool for creating impactful drinks can designs.”
Templates are available to download for Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, so designers can focus on their creations. Additional functions include screenshots to make sharing easy, whether within a presentation or via email.
Isaac Sodipo, designer at JKR Global said: “It took seconds to understand the app and I was amazed at how simple it was to see designs in 3D - it’s usually a complicated process.
“It’s so handy for creating and showing designs to other people and will make a lot of people’s lives easier.”
