The following case is a demonstration of my visual design thinking, when creating a more lifestyle centered brand experience for a target consumer audience.
Redesign packaging for Golden Cap & Kurko to better understand their consumer base and be more lifestyle orientated as well as create better visual inshore awareness through packaging and displays.
Keywords: #packaging #in-store #consumer #lifestyle #brandidentity #audience
The packaging is key a key marketing tool for GC and Kurko. It must:
- contain & protect the product
- be practical and usable
- stand out on the shelf
- appeal to target consumers
There are 3 emotional levels that I have explored as part of the packaging experience:
Aesthetics (unconscious processing: looks)
Usability (unconscious processing: pleasure/effectiveness of using)
Reflection (conscious: social, previous experience, personal context)

Not just common sense!
Senses play a vital role in forming our thoughts, impressions & behavior.
The most commonly highly used are sight and sound. However, smell has been proven to be the most important element in successful sensory branding campaigns.
By hitting more than one sense, brands can establish a stronger and longer lasting emotional connection with the consumer.
"Our experiments from the BRAND sense study, the world's largest study conducted on our five senses, shows that you can increase the consumer's brand preference by up to 56 percent if you embed scent in the right way; in the right context and using the right scent. This has caused sales in some of our experiments to increase by up to 45 percent." – Martin Lindstrom (BRANDSENSE)
