Design studio Artentiko has recently published images of their latest visual identity and packaging project for Hya-Joint, a medical product formulated from hyaluronic acid to treat the result of long-term wear and tear to the joints also know as osteoarthritis. Artentiko’s solution infuses a familiar, clinical neutrality and utility of ample white space and sans-serif typography with the soothing qualities of a cool colour palette, soft form and a raised gel-like print finish.

Artentiko’s solution is a solid communicative juxtaposition of clinical confidence and the perception of prescribed (rather than off-the-shelf) effectiveness and the humanistic expectation of wear-related pain relief. This is effectively delivered through established pharmaceutical cues such as the practicality of a sans-serif, plenty of space and a pharmaceutical white alongside the the soft protean aesthetic of a blue to green gradient and the convergence/divergence of two rounded forms.

A gel-like thermographic print finish across the logo-mark – perhaps a reference to the texture of the product – achieves a nice contrast of high gloss against what looks like the matt varnish of the box and a tactile quality you would expect of a premium and truly effective product.

Resolved these cues feel like a smart but simple conceptual fusion of clinical rigour and human experience with subtle technological undertones that work well to establish the themes of thorough research and development (ideal for a recommending clinical practitioner) and a proven effectiveness sought by the patient.

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.
