Marketing Challenge

  1. Cravola, the category leader, has become a 'once a year' brand. Crayola relies on 90% of volume coming from the back to school period from the sales of basic crayons and markers. The brand was viewed as a relic of crayons and markers without something special or new to offer today's kids.
