Monday Makeover: Holiday Gift Guide (Re-Mix)
Design Wish: To one day design for Hobby Lobby
Potential Client: Hobby Lobby
Challenge: Create a Holiday Guide full ideas for the winter & holiday season.
As a graphic designer there are some opportunities I want to cross my path.
One of those opportunities is designing for Hobby Lobby.
This time of year, Hobby Lobby will bring out their Halloween decorations, Thanksgiving decorations and Christmas decorations. While walking the isles of Hobby Lobby I thought to myself, they should have a guide that can help people with home decor, crafts, party decor, art and fabrics. So why not a Christmas In July Holiday Guide that introduces their products, offers suggestions for decoration for Fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Winter and Christmas; also including craft ideas and fashion ideas.
The followings images is what I would do, if I had the opportunity to design for Hobby Lobby.
Your guide through the Holidays.

• Released as a Sunday newspaper insert that will also be in Hobby Lobby stores the following Monday.
What make this insert different than the others is, the magazine would include tips & tricks from Interior Designers and Fashion Designers, Ideas from popular bloggers.
