The Coconut Collective is a new Australian brand of organic, flavoured, coconut waters drawn from Sri Lanka’s king rather than green coconut, a first for the market. Soulfresh, the company behind the brand, describe the water from the king coconut as having a ‘cleaner taste profile’, one that should appeal to a broader consumer base.
The Coconut Collective’s brand identity and packaging treatment was recently developed by New Zealand-based studio Marx Design. Their approach, a communicative mix of subtle sun bleached and tinted wood backgrounds, large coconut imagery, bold uppercase typography, an unusual but distinctive pastel colour palette, map and boat illustration, ingredient story, and stamp texture, neatly deliver a tropical, exported sensibility with a contemporary eye for colour that draws attention to a new coconut variety and its unique provenance.
uBear is a high-end mobile phone, tablet and laptop accessories business located in Los Angeles, California. Their visual identity, developed by Hype Type Studio and Mash Creative, included a new logo, stationery set, packaging and responsive website.
By utilising the bold graphic detail of diagonal stripes, sans-serif type, a bright and diverse colour palette, fine diagrammatic illustration, foils and varnishes and a simple bear icon, Hype Type Studio and Mash Creative’s solution effectively infuses familiar technological cues, a robust and practical industrial sensibility with an accessible, high quality, and distinctive dimension.
Obbio, a compound of obvious and bio, is a high quality organic supermarket built on a warehouse concept “where traditionally goods were sold without intermediaries.” Designed by Mayuscula, Obbio’s brand identity—which included logotype, illustration, packaging and signage design—juxtaposes etched illustrative detail alongside the utility of a modular grocery box device and stencil cut typography to resolve traditional values and modern convenience.
