CASE STUDY: Elevating the brand identity of Awakened Topicals

THE PROBLEM TO SOLVE

The well-established brand was seeking more growth and value to a larger consumer base.  The original logo and product label designs were well done, however did not have the impact required to hit this target.

THE SOLUTION

Budd Branding was quickly brought on-board,  to energize and ignite the logo and label redesign for the line of Awakened Topicals. The evolution of the logo includes an eye popping font, catching consumer attention. The flower and sun rays are stylish and unique.

THE PROCESS

Our goal was to create a balance in the logo. Shapes and sizes of sun ray graphics were created and presented in various proportions to the bud rendering. The male bud was explored as a graphic vs. an illustration. Various font options were explored as shown on the following page.

THE IMPACT

The delivery of logo and label redesigns exceeded client expectations. The new brand identity will soon be gaining attention on the shelves of California vending outlets. The impact on sales will be reported in a follow up study found on buddbranding.com.

It was important to maintain the overall feel of the existing brand, as this established brand has recognized presence in the marketplace.
