NWMLS will soon be releasing a new product, Matrix 360. We wanted to create a fun giveaway for members that attend the new product classes. We decided to create custom Matrix 360 notepads and custom buttons (off brand M&Ms) with a custom wrapper.

I created the Matrix 360 graphic using Adobe Illustrator. We supplied our printer with .EPS files of the graphic and our NWMLS 3 trees icon/logo to be printed on the candies/buttons themselves. We specified that we would like the NWMLS logo printed in white on the green button/candy and that we would like the Matrix 360 graphic printed in black on the white button/candy.

The wrapper itself was created in Adobe Illustrator. We submitted the .AI file for printing (with text converted to outlines, etc.). The wrapper was designed while following NWMLS brand standards (NWMLS colors, fonts, etc.). I chose to make the text bolder than I normally would for other NWMLS marketing materials because I wanted to ensure that the text would be readable (especially on the clear/transparent part of the wrapper).

The Matrix 360 notepad was 5in x 7in and was created in Adobe InDesign. The image used on the pad was purchased from iStock by Getty Images. I used NWMLS colors and NWMLS fonts.
