WHAT'S NEW IN THE MARKETPLACE
See America National Parks Fragrances
To celebrate some of the most memorable national parks and landmarks, Yankee Candle created limited-edition fragrances to bring these national treasures to life. This projected partnered YC with the National Parks and the Creative Action Network. I was responsible for designing this Limited Edition program and working with the licensor to make sure their objectives and needs were met, as well as, all the legal copy was to scale and read clearly under the agreement. My original design vision was to keep the illustration artwork and redesign the type treatments to look more like an old national park posters, which would have brought an overall cohesive look to this program.
