Describe the brief from the client
Revitalise the usual “cool and refreshing” image of KOOL with the summertime message of “Vibrant Energy”. This new message will convey the uplifting feeling of the winter and increase use, mainly among Marlboro menthol smokers at Family Mart(CVS).

Describe the challenges and key objectives
Our design idea was “THE COLOUR OF WINTER ENERGY”. Using illustration (a very rare choice in tobacco packaging), this design actively expressed the powerful storm of the winter as well as the refreshing electricity of the menthol experience. The strength of the storm was also different in accordance to tar level. With five different designs for each SKU with three different colour variations, there were a total of 15 designs for consumers to collect.

Describe how you arrived at the final design
The emotions of summer are on the beach, in the water, amongst the waves. This excitement equals vibrant dynamism of the brand. We have developed the design based on the idea of "BEACH SPLASH". This actively expressed both the cool energy of water in summer as well as the refreshing electricity of the menthol experience. We created five different splash designs for each SKU to have a "Collectable" repeat purchase value. In addition, there was a hidden KOOL logo or brand name written in Japanese within the design.

Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
Total share of the market increased by 111% at the second week of promotion. Packages were well-received by consumers and the promotion successfully contributed to new trial building.
