Identify : How does one create amazing use case experience? How does one create brand recall through packaging? How does one engage & connect longer with the consumer? (traditional touch points are retail & kitchen) Our research suggested that organic tea is perceived more as an experience than a mere beverage. Secondly, time spend with the brand/ pack is very less leading to low brand exposure and low consumer engagement. The pack is confined to kitchen & never makes it to the dining or living areas negating any possibility of brand visibility or exposure to other person or the guests. Lowering word of mouth chances Integrate : The design had to be integrated with the launch strategy, target market, brand positioning, production, costs, logistics, etc. The brand values also need to be reflected through the packaging design The Process
<ul><li>Innovate </li></ul><ul><li>The brand identity is an unique combination of traditional Indian motifs & contemporary European aesthetics. Sophisticated & matured </li></ul><ul><li>The package not only does its primary job of containing but is a central part of the overall presentation. Innovation is in the packaging format, the way the pack opens is like a cigar case, transcending from being a mere container to a presentation format, engaging & connecting with the consumer for longer period. (Pack is offered to the other person/ guest, who then would pick up a tea bag sachet this process ensures longer involvement with the brand & pack) </li></ul><ul><li>Longer the involvement better chances of relationships and word of mouth publicity </li></ul><ul><li>The packaging graphics were designed in a way that the brand visibility & image remained undisturbed in both horizontal & vertical placement </li></ul>The Process
