Describe the challenges and key objectives
Sales fall 12% every month of June. This is why we created a promotion to keep up sales on the worst month of the year.

Describe the brief from the client
Gandhi Bookstores is the leader in the mexican bookmarket. Gandhi wanted to boost sales in June, the lowest month.

Describe how you arrived at the final design
The idea was to create promotional products related to the habit of reading, to make them useful but always maintaining our signature sense of humor in communication.

Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
The products sold out in a month. Not only did sales maintain stable, they increased by 2%.
