Three Chicks Bakery brochure

boardpiece_final

I was asked to design a brochure for Three Chicks Bakery that would highlight their products, services and contact information.  The brochure had to be fun, colorful and informative. I used Candyland as my motivation. The brochure opens up to a whole board game filled with custom illustrations.  Say goodbye to the Candy Cane Forest and say hello to the Cake-Pop Forest.
