CREST

Challenge

Rebrand Crest through new identity and packaging for family of products.

Solution

An identity inspired from intimacy. Products that will be a companion, brightening oral hygiene routine.

Concept

Pentawards 2016 Nomination

This project has been nominated by the international jury for concept category.

Furthur level of award is to be announced.

Current Crest

Logo and packaging is loud and bright to gain attention in store. However, how the products appear at consumer’s home is less thought out.

The packaging blends right in, especially with their competitor Colgate. They need a different approach to stand out.

Logo Development

First step was to sketch 100+ logos that match my concept and key attributes.
Then potential logos went to further iterations in vector.

Sketching Ideas for Forms and Function

Quick sketches allowed me to explore different options. A lot of them are bad ideas, but getting those out is part of my process. Some are chosen for further exploration through mock-ups.

Findings From Mock-ups

How does it open? Does it feel good in your hand? There are so much you learn from full scale models. For each item in family of products, mock-ups were made to test.

Graphic Application

The application was explored on toothpaste and mouthwash. Graphic layouts were wrapped on actual mock-ups to see the legibility and how it apply on contour shape.

Style Guide and Dieline

FF Meta was chosen as secondary typeface to balance and emphasis the soft curvature the form. The style is clean, timeless, and suits any bathroom.

Making Final Model

The models were 3D printed with ZPrinter, then went through various process of primer spraying, sanding, painting, clear coating, vacuum forming, resin casting, depending on the desired material finish. Lastly, all graphic application was applied with chromatech.
