This year, Gakken launched the new Buttercup Babies series of baby books. And I got to be the guy to do it! I had the pleasure of developing the series look and designing these books, picking up the AMAZING art from insanely talented Japanese illustrator Shizue Arakawa. This was a joy! Gakken created sweetest text to accompany the art. We redesigned the books as wrapped hardcover board books with the originally intended cutouts and textures…and added new art, design, colors and special effects! Hooray! Say ‘Hi’ to Mimi and Bunny!
