Good Heavens! designed by B&B Studio

Good Heavens Range

Bio Green Dairy is a UK producer of drinking yoghurt that blends real fruit and good bacteria. As part of a brand overhaul they turned to London based design agency B&B to develop a new name, identity and packaging proposition that would deliver a stronger presence in an increasingly saturated market. Now retailing under the name Good Heavens! and labelled a ’boutique dairy’ the product has been repositioned as ‘indulgent’ and ‘feminine’

The original identity and packaging had a very generic, unremarkable and almost synthetic looking brand proposition. This has clearly been addressed and replaced with a new lighter and healthier direction. The typographical word-mark is a nice choice that is sensible and dynamic with a hint of tradition which carries a strong almost posh/polite/friendly conversational style. The colour palette is earthy delivering a significantly more genuine and wholesome aesthetic while the labels benefit from a stronger visual hierarchy and tone of voice. The bits of fruit and colour choices work well together, quickly conveying the flavours in a straightforward and consistent manner.

The background illustrations although light feel a bit fussy and the compote proves the identity and packaging works well without these. The choice of script much like the illustrations appear superfluous and doesn’t contrast well with the heavier weighted type selections, combined, these elements look like a box ticking solution for ‘feminine’ and are unnecessary in my opinion.

The conversational style feels like a suitable solution that creates a fun and good-natured sensibility, one that should establish trust in a product that is built on high quality natural ingredients.

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.

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.
