FEATURE | BRINGING UP BABY
It sounds like child's play, all cute and cuddly, but graphic design for the infant, toddler and preschool market is grown-up stuff with big stakes (think $50 billion-plus in retail sales and services). We focus on brochures and collateral and similar projects for the likes of Carter's, Jack and Lily, The Baby Owner's Manual, Pottery Barn Kids, the Urban Infant and more.
INSTORE GRAPHIC DESIGN AWARDS
In today's overheated, cluttered and competitive marketplace, it is dynamic, strategic and eye-catching graphic design that can make the difference in how, when and where consumers purchase. Our newest national competition honors the top 10% from among the hundreds of packaging, point-of-sale and retail graphics entries we received from creative firms, manufacturers, marketers and stores.
