PipSqueak Squeezers are animal-shaped pretend play characters. Each critter is designed to help preschoolers and children with special needs practice motor skill development with their hands.
I developed this POP display to help specialty retailers showcase the total cuteness of these little guys! Lucia Gaggiotti illustrated the POP and the product concepts.
Role: product concept, design, art direction, and naming.

Chet the Cat™ and Friends Identity and Development
Integrated art and design direction across product, social, eCommerce, and retail channels. The Chet the Cat™ and Friends line of preschool toy play sets marries quirky, playful illustrations with beautiful melamine. Inspired by a magazine cover Michael illustrated, my vision of a cafe run by animals came to life. Each piece features characters engaging in various food-themed activities, and they're appropriate for both boys and girls. Graphic designer Jessica Short collaborated with Michael and me to bring the line to life.

Creative direction, design direction, photography, and copywriting.

New photography, spirited headlines, and a DIY-inspired branded presence were chief among my goals with this project, along with revenue goals.
