Perfume prints

The Chicago-based independent perfumery, Clue Perfumery, chose print to encapsulate the essence of their debut fragrance collection.

Collaborating with Caleb Vanden Boom for the design, they opted for our digital broadsheets, leveraging the large canvas to showcase all important information "on a single sheet in a visually striking way." The newspaper was designed to provide a meaningful takeaway from their launch event, offering a visual storytelling experience.
