Hello, World!

Licensing Style Guide | Strategy and Insight | Packaging System | Retail Vision | Creative Asset Collection | Product Vision

One of our favorite projects with Random House, we had the opportunity to help develop the Hello, World! licensing program. We created a brand vision and licensing style guide for the series, working directly with author and illustrator Jill McDonald. We also provided creative asset collections for the two of the most popular board books and a packaging system with retail displays.

Dinosaurs

Given access to the book’s layered art files, we created a dynamic, neutral-gender collection that included placement prints, patterns, colors, and fonts, along with a selection of editorial sayings and a product vision.

Solar System

While our second collection was similar in size and scope, its theme allowed us to take the creative in different direction, using the stars, planets, and other celestial elements to develop a variety of patterns and designs based on the book’s subject matter.

Explore the World Around You!

With an eye on the growing market for educational products, also known as STEM, much of our editorial was pulled directly from the books to include various facts for our preschool audience. The focus on early learning also inspired the tagline, “Explore the World Around You!”
