Thinking Pink





Here are some comps I designed "on spec" a couple years ago for a board book about PINK. It was meant to be very "tactile". A book packager asked me to develop this concept, and I thought it was a really cute, marketable idea so I agreed to do it. Unfortunately, the packager never followed through with the idea, and I suppose it's ended up somewhere in publishing limbo-land. I came across it while scrolling through some old photos and thought I'd "publish" it myself so you could all enjoy it! What do you think? Would you buy this book for a little girl who liked pink?

When I was little, I always said I hated pink, becuase everyone expected me to like it because I was a girl. As I grew up and started to realize that I naturally gravitated towards the color, so in college I finally accepted the fact, and acknowledged that "pink is my favorite color".

I would probably buy a book about pink, for a neice or maybe just for myself :)

It reminds me of "Pinkalicious". I think that is what my 5 year old wants as a birthday them this year.

I adore pink, and I think my nearly two-year-old daughter does too. I'm trying not to influence her too much but she always chooses her pink tennis shoes over her brown ones. So yes, I would buy this book for my daughter and I.

Love it!! A whole series of books like this with each focusing on a different colour would be great. The 3D "Wear it" page is my favourite -- the texture adds a really fun element :-)

I remember you talking about this-- it's adorable!! You have to get it into the hands of a children's book publisher!
