This campaign was designed for a school project.  We had to select a product to build a package for.  I created the company Strike And Explore.  Strike and explore is a brand dedicated to durable, camp-friendly matches.  the brand elements were hand rendered to give the product a playful vibe.  we had to create a website, and chose four touch points for our product.  My four touch points included a billboard, bus stop signage, business cards, and a letterhead.
