Plasmon, the iconic baby food brand with 120 years of history, needed a new look to match their unparalleled range of products.
As part of the Kraft Heinz family, the goal was to usher the brand into the 21st century, outlining a strategy for the brand to reach a new generation of consumers with a well-organized, easy-to-understand product portfolio with a powerful shelf impact.
Refreshing the packaging design to reinforce and reaffirm the brand’s position as an industry leader, the new visual identity is modern, clear and powerful. In addition, we extended the brand to reach entirely new markets to fuel further growth.
Envisioning a new brand strategy to push Plasmon’s portfolio to the fore as an icon in the FMCG market.
Rooted in heritage for
a healthy future
The new offering builds on Plasmon’s long-standing values of high quality, natural ingredients, Italian heritage, traceability and togetherness. Rooted in history, the brand now faces the future with a modern look.
Clear contents in the packaging design underscore the Plasmon brand, the company’s key USP.
“Working for the Italian category leader in baby food meant balancing vision for tomorrow and brand heritage, mixing key brand equity and new design cues, to drive engagement for the next generations of consumers. We collaborated closely with Plasmon on a very important mission: establishing Plasmon as the FMCG brand icon of certified and uncompromised quality, great taste, and natural ingredients.”
Bringing brand experiences to life in the realm of retail
As part of the redesign for the overall retail concept of Blue Lagoon Iceland, we updated the flagship store located in Grindavík, to embody the Blue Lagoon brand. Physically translating the company’s core values and identity, the retail space now welcomes visitors with a full-fledged omnichannel brand experience.
The American retail food segment, worth almost a trillion dollars (USDA), is a competitive but potentially lucrative endeavor for any European company looking to expand its footprint and its yearly turnover. We set out to support Parmacotto, the Italian market leader, to enter the American market. Based on extensive research, we created a new packaging design for the US market. The fresh, clear, culturally adapted packaging includes additional storytelling about the Italian roots and the cultural heritage behind the product.
Re-energizing the packaging of the APAC market leader
Pepsico’s APAC market leading energy drink Sting had been using the same standard bottle since it’s launch. Design Group Italia was asked to develop a new disruptive design that could be owned exclusively by the brand, reflecting its core values and standing out from competitors. The resulting design is bold and authentic, with the structural packaging inspired by the lighting, the hero of the brand identity. It represents the energy inside the bottle that is being released direct to the consumer.
Bringing financial services alive through gamification
Unipolsai tasked us with a permanent brand activation space at their headquarters with the aim of communicating their services to their guests.
We designed an interactive space that brings to life the Unipolsai offering pillars of property, mobility and personal health and safety through phygital activations and games.
Celebrating a culture of global marketing excellence
Celebrating success is a key to many great companies, and PepsiCo is no exception. Starting with this idea of recognition, Design Group Italia was tapped to create a one-of-a-kind experience for BAM Awards by the PepsiCo Design &Innovation Center along with the Global Marketing team. The result is a spirited onomatopoeia to represent the company’s Best Achievements in Marketing. Our creative team in New York worked on naming, branding, graphics, copywriting, digital touchpoints, and the product design of bespoke trophies.
