Describe the challenges and key objectives
The challenge we had was to convey this simple yet very powerful message in a graphically captivating way: If you have a colour in mind, Protecto has it. Our objective was to take the client's brief and apply it in a way that the target would engage, play and feel part of the process. Being that colour is a pivotal part of graphic design and also our main benefit we thought: 'Why don't make them part of the message?'

Describe the brief from the client
Protecto Paints has a 6000 color palette, twice as many colours as the next competitor. The client wanted to get that message across in such a memorable way that people would have no doubt about it. Our main target are homeowners that think about paint not always in terms of brand but in terms of available options, being that the final decision is most of the time made on-store and based on colour preference.

Describe how you arrived at the final design
We decided to capture the ever changing colours generated by real time tweets with simple yet visually playful coloured squares and soft transitioning elements. We also used familiar paint iconography in subtle ways to combine this spontaneous color expression with the most familiar image of the colour shade palette icon. We wanted a site that was recreating itself constantly. One that we could literally design along with the help of people all around the world.

Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
The most influential Tweeters and Bloggers of the country praised the site's simple and beautiful collective aesthetic. People felt compelled to play with it and we received more than 100,000 visits from 35 countries around the world. Through this elegant and sober colour approach, the brand also projected itself as a color leader for the trendsetter target.
