Time Out Kids Banner - Illustration by Matt 'Iron-Cow' Cauley

BRIEF: To suppport the promotional materials for the 2008 holiday season, design a kids banner that can be colored by childen to be used at events globally.

DETAILS: The direction for this banner was "Take time out to have fun, share a moment with your friends and help others." In addition to a generally wholesome image, I wanted to tap into the mindset of a child as they play, basically to make the banner more interesting for them to color.

Seeing the photos of hundreds of kids coloring these banners around the world really put me in an unbelievably great mood.
