Macy's The Cellar -Valentine's Day Collection

Inspired by Valentine's Day candy hearts, this pastel-colored collection includes serveware, food prep, and cookware items. As the largest collection I've worked on at Macy's, I learned how to collaborate across multiple teams to ensure everyone's vision was represented in the final designs.

Professional Project 

Completed for Macy's | 2023

Defining the Project Scope

The goal for this project was to create a cohesive collection that spanned three different business categories, each with different teams who had a different vision for the collection. I started by brainstorming and creating mood boards with different themes and color palettes and was inspired by Valentine's Day conversation hearts for the theme that was selected.

My Role

As the primary designer on this project, I created the concepts, pattern illustrations, presentation renders, and spec sheets for the products. I also collaborated with multiple teams across Macy's to ensure agreement on the design direction, as well as our external vendor partners to ensure sample quality and design execution.

Ideation

Sketching

I started off by exploring a variety of unique figural items that could anchor the collection.

Pattern & Illustration

Alongside form development, I also worked on creating candy heart inspired patterns that could be applied as decals to items across the collection.

Concept Development

After ideation sketching and brainstorming, I created a set of 2D renders to help visualize and present the collection in the early stages of development.
