My Extra Gum


Wrigleys have just launched their latest US campaign My Extra Gum which provides consumers with the opportunity to design their own gum packs using a variety of themed templates.

“MyExtra gum lets you customize packs of Extra® gum for any occasion. Upload your own photos and messages, adjust fonts, colors and clip art to make each pack your own. Having a hard time deciding what to make? You can also browse the gallery for inspiration. One pack of gum, endless possibilities™.”

In the past this concept has been limited to branded corporate freebies (matches, stationary and stress balls etc). Wrigley’s has taken this and developed it into a consumer proposition. With a minimum personal order of 500 packs its success is likely to appeal to the corporate market regardless of its consumer facing website.

Thank you to everyone who has visited BP&O since its beginning in 2011. As many of you know, BP&O has always been a free-to-access design blog that seeks to offer extended opinion on brand identity work. It has sought to be the antithesis of the social media platform that often disentangles form, context and content. Writing articles can take 2-4hrs and are carefully researched.

I am passionate about design writing and believe that spending time to write about work, rather than just posting images, furthers design discourse. If you have enjoyed this article, have been with the site from its early days and would like to help contribute to its future, please consider supporting the site with a small PayPal donation. This will go towards the costs of hosting, CDN (to make the site quick to load) and Mailchimp, and cover some of the time it takes to research, write-up, format and share posts.
