Product and packaging design, art direction, and naming. Illustrated by Lucia Gaggiotti.
I brought the game along with me to Hawaii for this ad I shot and wrote for Sweet Paul magazine. The bones were covered in sand when I was through! And that sand castle in the background—someone built it the night before and I was lucky enough to stumble upon it!
My team created coloring pages that supported our blog content efforts. Our goal was to populate Pinterest boards with content that would drive engagement and interest in our preschool games.

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.
