Klar Tale by Strømme Throndsen Design

Packaging created by Strømme Throndsen Design for Dent's fresh breath and a clear throat pastel brand Klar Tale

Klar Tale (Clear Voice) is a new brand of sugar free lozenge produced by Dent created to provide fresh breath and a clear throat for the young adult market. The brand’s new packaging, designed by Oslo based studio Strømme Throndsen, has a light but playful aesthetic that manages to balance a sense of effectiveness with a style that plays well to a social, communicative and self conscious demographic.

“Strømme Throndsen Design have created a new and engaging design concept with a corresponding sub-brand name, inspired by the product’s physical attributes. The strong fresh taste of the lozenge makes people talk and gives a freshness to the mind that helps you express yourself clearly.”

This project really struck me as a very interesting combination of visual qualities that manages to successfully tread the fine line between candy, in its bright colour way and loose typographic direction, and a semi medicinal sensibility through its clean, white background and written content. The speech bubbles, name and exclamation mark have an expressive conversational style and an aesthetic that neatly characterise a social environment while resolving content associated with effective health related products (sugar free, menthol and formulation etc) in a straightforward way. The packaging is a neat solution that manages to distil a verbal world in a visually clear but informal manner.

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.
