Packaging, logo and brand identity designed by Design Bridge for organic soft drink Oggu

Oggu is a Dutch brand of soft drink, the first European brand to use only 100% organic ingredients and owned by Organic Beverages. They approached the Amsterdam office of Design Bridge to develop a name, identity and packaging for their premium range. Based around the idea of ‘Delicious Purity – with a twist’  the name is a combination of the words organic and gusto (taste in Italian).

“Oggu needed to be a true Euro-brand so we introduced a witty mix of European languages and gave each flavour its own fun, t-shirt style slogan, using deliberately unrefined and quaintly retro graphics. Overflowing with eccentric brand personality, Oggu avoids taking itself too seriously by playfully engaging with consumers whilst still communicating passionate commitment to its pure, organic provenance.”

I really like the character of this new range which feels like an intelligent step away from the sticky and sweet sensibility associated with other brands. The packaging utilises the current and popular trend for retro mixed type and illustrations that give both a traditional yet modern appearance. The word-mark is a wonderful example of strong typographical work that is well rendered and conceptualised to fit well within the label hierarchy and style of the brand.

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.
