Packaging Design

Recent ID grad here!

I am looking at trying to break into 3D packaging for my first ID job. To me there seems to be a lot more opportunities for grads/juniors to apply for and get their foot into the industry. Looking further a field there also appears to be a fair few roles for Middleweight Packaging Designers too, so there is a track for progression.

I just wondered if there is any packaging designers on here who might be able to offer advice about this particular area of ID and has it limited you when say applying for more generic ID jobs?
