Liberation has redesigned the sleeves for the Karisma brand of lead crayons, which will be launched in art shops this summer. The group was briefed to create eight designs with a similar theme, by the use of a subtle quarter circle in various guises on each pencil box, says Liberation creative director Liz Gibbons.
