DREAMCOMPOSER® for Seamless 3D Packaging Model Creation

Just a few steps to create an attractive 3D model: Our DREAMCOMPOSER® software for designers facilitates the generation of packaging designs virtually, in an uncomplicated way. Our tool offers a selection of over 100 real KURZ transfer decorations as well as exclusive design effects with which you can quickly find the best look for your cardboard boxes, bottles, jars and more.

And this is how it works: With just a few clicks, a PDF document becomes a fully designed 3D model. This means that ideas can not only be imagined on paper, but also viewed and tested on screen from all sides, from different angles. Without having to produce a real mock-up.

Using a viewer link, the model can then be easily shared with colleagues or the client. Change requests can also be implemented live directly and without unnecessary loss of time. In addition, 4K screenshots can be created at the touch of a button. Coordination couldn't be easier. Read even more information about our KURZ DREAMCOMPOSER® here.

Translucent Artworks

The LUMAFIN® Design Tool

Creativity – that’s what drives us designers, after all: The quest for something special, for the perfect finishing touch, that will set design apart from what was yesterday and results in totally new forms of expression.

This tool has been developed for all those with a burning passion for such expressiveness. For those who love playing with flickering color effects, iridescent light and translucent gradients, surfaces or accents. For shimmering, disconcerting and inspiring effects. It demonstrates how the interplay between ardent inspiration and bold design, between matte and gloss can work, how contrasts can find common ground with LUMAFIN®, our new translucent series. It’s different and unique. For transfer finishing, in combination with underprint or overprint techniques. For more depth or shimmering effects. For smooth surfaces or tactile accents. 

Touch, look, immerse yourself in your own creativity. And in addition to the shades shown here, there are all sorts of other design possibilities too. Get in touch.
