insight + testing

This project began with extensive research that included market analysis, target audience investigation, and competitive insight.

Target audience segments were defined, products were chosen for the line and features like price point and a subscription offering were established.

brand development

Creative development included naming, identity and packaging. Multiple concepts were tested during several points of the development process to ensure that creative decisions were connecting with the target audience and conveying the right message.

Visual Design

To extend the brand and create a unique and memorable experience, animated visual patterns reinforcing the square shape from the logo were created to add texture, depth,  movement and a nod to the clinical component of the poducts.

messaging + activation

To support the accessibility of the brand and as a reflection of values that our target audience expressed, a photo/video shoot with influencers who tested the formulas in the line was created to boost the authenticity of the brand by showing real people with real results. The shoot involved concept development, production, art direction, retouching and video editing.

This imagery and video was leveraged on the brand’s website and also in the popular social media feed to announce the official launch of the line. Additional social media posts highlighting ingredients and the science behind the formulas was created to help educate those considering a purchase.
