For Holiday 2014, one of the main stories for Skagen product and marketing was the winter weather, more specifically, “ice”. The product team needed a custom pattern that would work for various products.

Inspired by the perfect imperfection of nature and architecture, I pitched various concepts, mood boards and designs, until we landed here. The pattern was used on stationery gifting product (which I also designed the product & packaging for) as well as various leather hand bags, small leather goods and tech product (Apple™ & Android™). The pattern was also used to pull the story together in digital marketing (gift guide landing page, blog post and emails).

Various Web Layouts:    Gift guide featuring the patterned leather product as well as being used as a graphic treatment for a blog post description of the collection.

Holiday Gift Wrap & Gift Tag Stamp Set:    designed the gift wrap packaging and accompanying purchasable stamp and tag set. As the Danish Star was the overall seasonal story and “ice” was just a moment, I had to find a way to tie in the star graphic with the ice pattern. I accentuated the geometric shapes with tonal gray & foil prints on a metallic paper to add texture.
