Smithsonian Journeys

Using a fair and transparent, competitive process, Smithsonian Journeys selected BrenesCo to redesign their tour catalog. Mailed to past travelers and new prospects, the catalog is a key in attaining new bookings by sparking interest and a strong desire to travel with Smithsonian Journeys. Understanding the audience, and how to connect with them, BrenesCo set out with a fresh approach to the catalog’s positioning, design, look and feel.


Every design element of the catalog was redesigned, the page layout, the fonts, the imagery, and the overall look and feel were all conceived with the end goal of speaking to the target audience to build excitement, greater engagement, greater awareness and a strong sense of desire to book a trip with Smithsonian Journeys.
