Spooktacular Package Design

8 Count Dracolour Crayons

Wouldn’t you want to purchase a box of “8-Count DraColour Crayons”?

I have been having a lot of fun designing packages lately and this is one of my favorites. With Halloween around the corner, I couldn’t not make something Halloween-ey. This fun design for a box of crayons takes advantage of the product window to showcase both the item inside and to reinforce the design of the Vampire. Text on the package is fun, playful, and simple enough for a child to get the message. Yet enough information is conveyed for adult customers too.

If you remember the Cat’s Meow Tea package design project that I did a few weeks ago, I kept the color palate consistent among the designs. I would really like to do more designs like this so stay tuned for more!

New Unicorn Postcard Colors

One of my most popular postcard designs has gotten an upgrade!

I love the pink and white unicorn, but I felt a it needed a friend in complimentary colors. Unicorns aren’t all the same color anyways. Both designs are made from original pen and ink illustration and digitally colored. They are printed in the USA and are available in my Etsy shop, Pink Toe Press as separate and joint postcard packs! They are also available at Rocket Fizz Burbank. You can send them in the mail like a regular postcard (just add a stamp!) or they fit nicely in a frame or envelope.

Graphic Design Samples 2: Children’s Book

Hello again,

I’ve been meaning to post these for a while now. I’m not sure if I told you, but I worked on layout and graphic design for a children’s book. The book was written by a skilled actress and teacher who works with young children. She came up with the idea for a travel book for kids and adults that is geared towards traveling via airplane (although the activities could easily be modified to work for land or sea travel). From activities to complete alone or with a group, this book will surely keep even the most active travelers at bay.

This was a fun and challenging project. The book ended up being about 100 pages and includes 101 activities to do while traveling. Each page was designed by yours truly. Once my copy of the book arrives, I’ll  be sure to post more pictures.  *I did not illustrate this book, the illustrations were done by another person. I did create all of the the layouts and page designs. If you are interested in picking up a copy of the book, visit this link. :-)

I’ve heard that the author is planning on making a Spanish Language version of the book. Stay tuned for more information on that project and for some photographs of the book.

Thanks for lookin’! -P
