Describe the challenges and key objectives
The SP brand had grown tired and had not kept up with trends in the highly competitive hair care category. Hairdressers viewed SP as not relevant and having lost its high end/premium perception. While the product itself was still viewed as highly technological and efficacious, the packaging did not support the product.
The key objective was to bring SP in to the future, giving the product a package that fit with its benefits. We needed to re-establish its relevance to a highly demanding clientele.
Describe the brief from the client
Revitalise the System Professional through a brand re-stage which included new packaging. Restore the brand's high-end perception and image through design. Make the packaging as relevant, high-end and well-loved as the product itself and serve as a driver for all communication touch points.
Describe how you arrived at the final design
Through a compelling and intuitive new concept called 'My Fab Lab', we were able to identify what was proprietary about the SP product and bring it to life through design. The idea of the alchemy of beauty and science was the driver behind the concept and is the inherent benefit of these advanced, personalised hair care products.
Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
In market results are now available and prove the success of the new initiative. SP sales of the new line are now outselling the old line by over 150% in Europe. Distribution has increased significantly and 1500 new salons are carrying the brand. There is also a staggering 80% repurchase rate in the first 6 months of distribution. Hairdressers have told us that the new packaging is as superior as the product itself.
The Design & Branding titled SYSTEM PROFESSIONAL was done by Landor Associates advertising agency for product: Wella Hair Care (brand: Wella) in Germany. It was released in the Oct 2009.
