Product Development - Ballet Gift Shop

Design and small-scale manufacturing of Nutcracker Ballet character themed gift products. These high-quality Made in USA gifts have been collected by ballet dancers and their families since 2007. No other brand offers nearly as many ballet character representations. Hundreds of non-profit dance companies have resold these products for fundraising purposes.

Product development process involved field research, sketching, materials testing, vector line art preparation for laser-engraving, painting, refinement, and final production.
