The design for Instant Summer gives us that feeling when the pool opens on the first day of Summer and you just gotta call out of work. The breezy, approachable design utilizes holographic elements to bring out a youthful branding experience. Utilizing the hero colors of the watermelon: red, green, and black, and a typeface that gives a cheeky nod to the 70s, this is a brand experience that is immersive and immediate. Instant Summer makes a great case for Summer Fridays and spending the season sipping this premium Watermelon juice in the sun. ??We're gonna need a case of these to last through these upcoming winter months!
"That summer feeling, all year long." The intensity of competition within the category of juices is, quite frankly, insane and a good product on its own is not enough to guarantee success. Here come Melon Bros, a small yet ambitious company based in Thessaloniki, Greece focusing exclusively on quality watermelon juice. They wanted a fresh, bold and distinctive proposition, including naming and visual identity for a brand destined for export.
The younger generation of international consumers, health-conscious but unwilling to forego pleasure. Knowledgeable and demanding, they are ready to pay a premium for a juice that ticks the right boxes.
What else is the watermelon if not the epitome of summer? Child-like innocence, happy thoughts, smiles, and a feeling of carelessness that we would like to enjoy throughout the year. But what if we could do exactly that? If we had summer trapped in a bottle, we could have immediate access to precious summer feelings, whenever we feel like. Instant Summer! The creative tone we wanted? Vibrant and full of life, yet simple and unpretentious – like a lovely summer day.
The juice comes from the heart of the watermelon, and it stands for the heart of the summer. This is why a heart-like shape with the distinctive marks of the watermelon – the green skin, the bright, red core and the black seeds- dominate the identity. The shape is complemented by a one big, juicy drop, The backside is covered by text in playful green letters, explaining in a very frank, down-to-earth way the philosophy of the juice and its pledge to stick to absolute naturalness. All these, set against the natural red canvas of the juice itself create an end-result that is as inviting as it is convincing. Enjoy your summer all year long!
