Using a template developed for all of the Enesco January catalogs, I worked with the project manager and product managers on the design and layout, pulling in text and building tables. I also worked with the project manager and the photographer on beauty shots for the 180 page catalog.

I used a fun but readable script font above a bright, cheerful bumblebee and a half-wreath of colorful wildflowers.
