THE FRAGRANCES
 
Forest Fir
spruce  / fir needles / balsam
Winter forest, a freshly sawn tree, and the beauty of a noble Frasier fir illuminated with peaceful lights
 
Winter
evergreen / mint / vanilla
Cold frosts and white landscapes, delicate snowflakes falling from the sky, and the feel of winter’s breath in your lungs
 
Crimson Clove
cranberry / clove / mandarin
The nostalgic feeling of the holiday season, woodland winter berries, and decorated citrus fruits with cloves

Pattern Design

The pattern, titled Celebration, was designed to echo a candle's scent throw. Festive, but not overtly holiday. Elegant, bold, luminous.

Celebration is meant to encompass the excitement of the holiday season through movement and pattern, with bursts of stars and rays of light. This design plays off the flourishes and elegant linework of the Linnea’s Lights brand, elevated for the holiday season.  
Pattern Rough sketch alongside final vector artwork.
We took a maximalist approach to the label design in that artwork and text all felt ornately combined. It was our goal to weave text seamlessly in and out of the pattern. We achieved this by arcing text boxes across the pattern elements.

INDIVIDUAL CANDLE PACKAGING

In addition to the Terrain gift set, we designed label stickers for each candle's individual packaging. We adapted the pattern design to fit the unique label shape and craft tubes of their Everyday collection.

Remember the days of making snow angels after the first snow of the year? Of hanging ornaments on a freshly cut tree, and cuddling by the fire drinking cider while listening to Bing Crosby?
