Valentine’s Day is celebrated every year on February 14. It is a celebration of romantic love, an occasion on which lovers express their love for each other by presenting flowers, confectionery, and sending greeting cards (known as "valentines").
Atomic Candy is a quirky, quaint, old-fashioned candy store located on the historic town square in Denton, Texas. These in-store window posters were created to lure in passersby during Valentine week, a time of copious candy gifting and consumption.
Keeping with the shop’s retro, sci-fi sensibilities, we created a series of posters capturing amazing moments in intergalactic love affairs that involved candy. The striking illustrations and the twisted love stories of fictitious alien creatures made the work fresh and unique.
The work captured the attention of local residents and visitors to the town square, where the store is located, with the store having to fend off multiple requests for prints of the posters. The store saw a marked increase in traffic from the previous year. The work caught the attention of the marketing and advertising media, and was featured on many blogs and industry publications.
