PISCATAWAY, N.J., Sept. 29, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Reeves, the iconic British art brand with more than 250 years of heritage, has launched an extensive rebrand to empower everyone to unleash their creativity! Following a global relaunch, Reeves' will debut its "Show Your Colours" campaign in the U.S. to encourage millennials and fans of the brand to explore their inner artist, no matter where they are on their artistic journey.
Reeves has partnered with Llew Mejia, a New York-based illustrator who has designed for numerous national lifestyle brands, as its new U.S. collaborator. Mejia will lend years of experience with textile design, pattern-making and packaging to craft custom-designed art for Reeves. Last night, Reeves' launched its "Show Your Colours" campaign at a rooftop party in Manhattan, where guests got a chance to celebrate creativity with experiential art stations alongside Mejia.
"I'm stoked to work with Reeves and help bring this new, energetic campaign to life in the U.S.," said Llew. "I believe that art is for everyone no matter your age or experience. A quick sketch, a streak of color — we're all capable of unleashing creativity and expressing ourselves every day."
Reeves' re-energized look and feel is designed to spark imagination in anyone, from established artists to the occasional doodler. Regardless of skill or knowledge, all creativity can start with a pen, pencil or brush, and Reeves is on a mission to make art accessible to all. As part of the rebrand, Reeves has launched a bold, new logo featuring a symbolic 'r', which is certain to become its signature. A redesigned website and social channels feature how-to videos, product information, inspiration and more.
The rebrand also includes a refresh of Reeves' entire product portfolio, including new packaging for Paint By Numbers and Scraperfoils, providing the tools you need for your creative journey.
