The Sneaky, Snacky Squirrel Game
This preschool game was born out of a trip to Tokyo, where I saw a multitude of training chopsticks for children. The idea of using chopsticks as the centerpiece of a game grew into the Squirrel Squeezers, which encourage children to harvest acorns while practicing their fine motor skills. I sketched a tree-shaped box and worked with the factory to develop this hand-wrapped, fully illustrated package that doubles as the game board.

Grandma's Trunk Game and Package Design
This preschool game was a blast to conceive and design. I hired artist Tascha Parkinson to paint 26 letters of the alphabet traditionally on canvas for the cards that make up the game. She also hand painted straps, buckles, and country "stickers" for the packaging, which added such charm to the finished illustrations. The packaging, when complete, looked like it had been hand painted by Tascha, as I specified a canvas-textured paper substrate for printing. She even painted her own cat Lily on the inside of the trunk...so adorable. We opted to go with a minimal cardboard bellyband as the final on-shelf consumer packaging, so that the entire trunk could be seen at retail. What a delight this project was to design!
