YANKEE CANDLE

Ornament Lid Concepts

PROGRAM

For the 2017 holiday season the 2H 2017 Curiosity thematic was still in full gear and this limited edition program was designed to include a surprise ornament inside. Ultimately, this lid program did not move forward with the final wax vessel collection.

 

OBJECTIVE

To design a holiday ornament that is inspired by the Q4 2017 POV boards. Also to design a specialty lid that would hold or temporarily affix the ornament to the lid and to design the approach to affix the ornament

 

ORNAMENT CONCEPT A
For this concept, I designed two emotional approaches to the decoration. Design A uses stylized mother and child deer icons facing each other under the Northern Star, the icons were inspired from the POV boards. Design B uses  a holiday sentiment phrase which is framed with a seasonal dot and star pattern. The substrate was designed as frosted stamped Plexiglas with opaque white screen deco.
ORNAMENT CONCEPT B
Simple metal die-cut holiday shapes finished in a Pantone Metallic Bronze.
ORNAMENT CONCEPT C
For this concept, I designed several decorations options. These concepts are designed as embossed stamped deco on metal substrate. The design uses the same source metal and vendor who would produced the lids.
