A healthier vision

Responding to a changing market, Danone wanted to powerfully capture and express its commitment to health and nutrition. We were asked to create a new global brand identity that would better represent Danone’s new positioning, ‘One Planet. One Health’. This purpose was brought to life through a refreshed global brand, including the ‘child star’ identity, and supported by a new look and feel reflecting a more human, inclusive and forward-looking business. We also rationalised Danone’s brand architecture to enable its portfolio of brands to communicate consistently across every touchpoint. Our work has successfully repositioned the business for the future, and Danone is now living its values through every touchpoint across its brand portfolio.

Coca-cola
Coca-Cola European Partners

Driving a unified culture

It is now over two years since Coca-Cola European Partners (CCEP) was created following the merger of Coca-Cola Enterprises, Coca-Cola Iberian Partners and Coca-Cola Erfrischungsgetränke – becoming the world’s largest independent Coca-Cola bottler. In a drive to build a more entrepreneurial culture within the new merged organisation and to manage the corporate brand consistently, CCEP needed to empower and support its communications teams in the delivery of iconic and consistent communications and design.

We developed an inspiring vision for the brand, refreshing the CCEP visual identity, supporting consistent delivery across key communication channels and formats. These were brought together in the form of a fully immersive digital ‘playbook’ that set the parameters for future communications development. The solution has become an important vehicle to re-connect CCEP employees with the heart of the company and re-ignite their excitement to be working for such an inspirational brand.

Creating a patient-centric brand

Through acquisition, Teva had many different successful local brands with over 40,000 products operating across the world. Extensive research with pharmacists, physicians, nurses, and patients unearthed a critical need to assist patients in understanding their medication, whilst supporting pharmacists' ability to find the correct product quickly. Through interaction with global markets, we created a strategic positioning for the global portfolio, providing a navigation-led design system, redesigning Teva's entire packaging portfolio to help reduce error and improving patient safety. Comprehensive guidelines and training systems were created to allow the new system to be implemented effectively by local tears and agencies across all product packaging systems. More than 95% of stakeholders stated that the new packaging provided simple, easy to understand information and that the new design made it easier to differentiate between medicines.
