Today’s case study shows how typical roadblocks can be turned into a super fun obstacle course. Keep on reading to see how our client, Baci Gelato got a total packaging refresh while working on a tight budget.
Baci Gelato reached out in an effort to improve their current product packaging. After a series of thoughtful questions, we were able to break down some very specific concerns and constraints:
1. Current package size is awkward and does not stand out alongside other frozen dessert options
2. Design for two product types in 23 distinct flavors
3. Showcase the products natural highlights while being packaged: real fruit, colorful toppings, candy and syrup swirls mixed in.
4. Work within a small budget that doesn’t allow for 23 print variations
We analyzed these challenges and from there, came up with the following solutions:
1. Update the package dimensions to the standard pint size
2. Create two transparent packaging styles: one design for gelato and another design for sorbet
3. Individually print flavor labels & ingredient/barcode stickers that seamlessly work into the overall design.
4. Switch to transparent lids so the delicious toppings are visible, making for a more shopper friendly in-store experience.
5. New copy on the side of packaging to speak to the essence of Baci.
Happy clients and intrigued consumers. Each flavor is distinguished by transparent packaging allowing the swirls of goodness shine through. Gelato flavors are stamped with the classic Baci Gelato swirl logo and the sorbets are stamped with fruit shapes. Much improved shelf display. Increased sales perpetuating a growing brand.
