Hababy’s Christmas Eve Electronic Editions

Hababy’s Christmas Eve
adapted to electronic publishing formats!

In fall of 2012, two electronic versions of Hababy’s Christmas Eve: An illustrated holiday story were created. The first, a standard fixed layout eBook and the second an enhanced version for iBooks including a full audio recording for a read-to-me option when viewing the book. Yes, read by author Jamie Farr, who best known for portraying Klinger on the hit television show M*A*S*H. His reading is of course wonderfully expressive and is accompanied by original music by Tim Clott.

We worked with eBook partnership for file conversion and distribution and their expertise was invaluable! Adjusting layout, page sizing and creating a base file was handled on our end, as well as preparing the audio track with page breaks. Knowing exactly what was needed, that is the trick, and having a knowledgable partner in that process made for a positive experience.

Purchase the electronic formats by following the links below:

Apple Products (with audio) $6.99  •  Kindle $4.99  •  Kobo $4.99

Essential Journeys Liquid Soap Label

Essential Journey’s liquid soap labels coordinate with the lotion label designs done previously. Color palettes, floral illustration elements and main brand pieces were retained, but the design focus was changed to give a distinctive feel to these labels. The goal, to coordinate, but not confuse products, especially with the Grapefruit Splash which is available both as a lotion and a liquid soap.

The bike diva illustration is close cropped on these labels to show just her head and shoulders vs. the full length image on the lotion labels. Also the background image is mostly solid with a few floral elements rather then a full vine pattern.

Another key change was using the sun ray pattern along the top, where as on the lotion labels the tonal leaf pattern is shown along the top.

Like the lotion labels, the idea was to create a template style that could easily be updated by swapping out colors to fit with new scents as Essential Journey’s expands their line of liquid soaps.
