Introduction Packaging, more than a round up of typography and colors, are a big place for cosumers from all over the world to have an imagination, transmit emotion, selling status or even satisfying the consumer’s need to always want more. This project will be an experiment for a new theme segment for an existing brand in the market.

The motivation for the creation of this project was the appreciation for the premium vodka bottle designs (name given for only the best tasting and appealing alcohol products), the need to create a new product with a differencial from its competition and to elevate the brand itself for bigger sales around the world.

The work done here has a packaging theme, with a pre-made experimental briefing to create a new vodka bottle and a package for it, with a totally different vision from the current model, creating a new theme segment, making the product shine and consequently putting it in first place on market sells all over the world. The following chapters will show the research done to choose this brand and theme for the chosen product.

Chosing a specific audience for this product came from the idea of creating a new theme segment for the brand. Vodka is one of the most consumed and known drinks around the world, as it will be shown on the following chapter. On the next pages there will also be cited examples about the chosen audience for the product shown.

01. Objectives

014

01.1


Objectives This research has as the main objective to gather information about alcoholic beverage sales around the world, so the target-public can be found and to make an analysis about it’s competitors, observing each individual visual element form the label, taking care not to reproduce any possible mistakes identified on them. The motivation to make this vodka bottle comes from the lack of attractive products in this category for the chosen brand (which will be shown later in this book), that don’t get copied from existing ones, because by analyzing a few products out on the market, it comes to a conclusion that many of them are not very well situated in thir category. Creating a new theme segment for a specific audience will help to motivate others to create more and more special collections and editions made for special occasions and will show that every product can be transformed for the public and place chosen.

Abstract This is a project dedicated to creating a new visual identity for a new theme segment for a premium vodka brand chosen based on extended research. The purpose of this project is to not only elevate the brand’s level in sales, but also to transform the vodka bottle in a collection item, made exclusively for the consumer in question.

02.1


Methodology This chapter shows all the methodology used to create this research. It will be pointed in this volume a detailed gathering of information about the frequency the consumer drinks vodka around the world, according to the AC Nielsen reasearch here shown. With this data, the chosen audience is found, also the place where the theme for this product takes place.

02.2


Research To creat th final product for this work, there was a need to make an extended field research in supermarkets and licquor stores, where the beverage is sold to the public.

There will also be an analysis for the top three brands that are sold in the market, analyzing it’s colors and harmony between every element in their labels.

Among these locations, the most appropriate place would be the licquor stores, where there is a vast array of options from the same drink but also for the store itself, where a more specific type of product is sold. In this chapter it will also be shown the suggested audience for the brand, as well as the location (country and city) for the execution of this experiment for it’s first sell. The city and country chosen were found through and extended analysis about this product’s selling rate in different countries around the world and by measuring how much the consumer drinks in that place.

02. Market Analysis

030

02.2.1


Market Analysis According to a recent research made by the AC Nielsen Company, in 2007, the alcoholic beverage consumption in the world has shown a growth of 6% in 53 international markets. Ciders and vodkas showed in 2007, growth in consumption, of 14% and 11% respectively being the top two categories in alcohol drinking all over the world. The research shows that even some countries where it would be unimaginable that this market got bigger, are revealing themselves as potential direct clients for the world’s biggest vodka producers. Vodka comes in second place in the above mentioned research with an 11% growth in the global market. Russia is the biggest consumer and has contributed for such overcome, with 7%, but the United States also showed that they are overcoming this non-stop market. In Europe, France has stood up with its 13% more than the year before. Brazil comes in sixth place in the world ranking, with a 12% growth.

This research is useful to show in detail how the consumer drinks and what kind of drink is preferred at the time of the sale. With his, a few questions can be made:

– Which country is th biggest consumer?

– What type of drink is consumed in this country?

– What is th specific audience for this new product that will be created in this country?

02. Chosen City

034

02.2.2


Chosen City After analyzing the countries which consume the most vodka in th world, it comes to a conclusion that the United States is the country with the most growth in the consumption of the product, standing in front of places like Europe. As this project is about creating a new theme segment based on a city around the globe, the chosen country was USA, one of the most famous cities is New York, mainly because of its tourist attractions, commerce and place for various historic moments. By having an extensive knowledge about the city and having lived there for a few years, this city became the perfect candidate for the testing of the creation of this new product. The objective behind this packaging project is to show that the brand cares about the consumer like he is an exclusive person for it and that the product was carefully made for him exclusively.

035


02. Suggested Audience

036

02.2.3


Suggested Audience New York has a characteristic population, where one of its highlights is the busy working man. Never with time to appreciate or celebrate his achieved goals in life, be them at work or in his personal life. This package was created based on this figure, the man that never has time to have fun but when he has, he enjoys every second of his celebrations with the people he loves. The suggested audience for this product will be the 35-50 year old, busy and succeeded New York man, that likes to appreciate the little details in life, that doesn’t have time to celebrate his achievements, but takes in every special moment he can get and likes to have collection items created exclusively for him. Images from this audience will be shon in the Inspiration chapter.

Chosen Brand

038

02.2.4


Chosen Brand The main problem for this project is choosing the brand for the creation of this new theme, for such, it was researched among the top three best selling brands (shown in th next pages) the need to be on top of worldwide sales, if the brand has different products besides its main one, what are they and also see if the have a visual identity that combines with the consumer, if the label comunicates to the person that is going to buy the sensation that he is acquiring the proper product. Creating an experimental briefing, where it is needed to create a new theme segment for the brand, the biggest challenge was to put the company in first place in wordwide sales, for this, from the top three best selling vodkas in the world, according to the website www.nielsen.com, Absolut, Grey Goose and Smirnoff, in this order, are the main candidates for this project.

039


Chosen Brand

Chosen Brand Absolut was automatically disqualified from this selection simply for being the leader brand in the market. The briefing says that the brand must be at most in second place in sales, so there can be a reason to create a new product to boost sales. The other detail is that this brand has a vast line of themed products.

Figure 1 Absolut logo. Figure 2 Smirnoff logo. Figure 1.

040


Smirnoff was also put to the side in this research for having the same theme segment from the leading brand, with a big variety in flavors and packaging.

Figure 2.

Grey Goose was chosen for this project, for having a relatively short line of products compared to its competition, as shown on the website www.greygoosevodka.com it relies only on its main product and four other bottles with different flavors (La Poire, La Vanille, Le Citron e L’Orange).

041


Chosen Brand

Chosen Brand Grey Goose was created in France in 1997 and its biggest market until this day is the USA, as shown on the website www. greygoosevodka.com was imported by Sidney Frank, who sold the production rights to Bacardi in 2004, for $2.2 billion. Frank died in 2006. The brand took off in the market as soon as it was created mostly for having a high price, this sent a feeling of quality and sofistication for the consumer that worked. Grey Goose was responsible for making so many vodkas become more expensive. He said: “Americans want to pay more for a good product, you just have to give them a good story.� Figure 3.

Analyzing the Competition 02.2.5


Analyzing the Competition In this chapter it will be analyzed the top three bes selling vodkas in the world. The criteria used in this evaluation was if the bottle clearly shows what the product is (in this case vodka), if it transmits the purity, if the label is in harmony with the rest of the elements in the bottle (cap graphics, cork and seal) and if the package has an acceptable design for a vodka standard. These are the chosen brands:

– Absolut Vodka – Grey Goose Vodka – Smirnoff

045


This is the world’s best selling vodka. Absolut is a brand that has many sofisticated products, this bottle, which is the main one, has a clean typography in its main areas, as shown in number 1, where reading becomes easily done. The handwriting in the products description transmits the idea that the product was made manually and almost exclusively to whoever bought it, this is an important characteristic if the product wants to sell sofistication, which is appropriate in this case.

Figure 6 Absolut bottle. Figure 7 Smirnoff bottle.

Number 2 shows the important information from the bottle, like weight and other important legislation items. They also show a clear typography, allowing for easy reading. The cap in number 3 shows off a high level of sofistication wit its brushed metal aspect, without any additional elements.

1

The bottle wraps it all up resulting in simplicity and direct communication with the consumer, each element is in harmony with the rest of the packaging and the language is clear and objective.

Figure 6.

Analyzing the Label

Absolut

Smirnoff The world most copied vodka, this can be seen by just analyzing most of the cheap vodka bottles in the market. Its design is very popular. In number 1, where the bottle appears to be “twisted”, is in place with the name “Twist” for this special line of products.

3

The product has seals and badges besides the usual label as shows number 2, which are in harmony with each other, making a unified visual experience. The cap (number 3) does not have a cork, an important factor for a better conservation of the product inside the bottle. It also has a smaller opening than the other brands, allowing less liquid to come off in a short period, but analyzing others, it comes to a conclusion that th opening needs to be bigger than it is right now, and also have a cork to better protect what’s inside.

Analyzing this bottle, it can be concluded if observed carefully that the main illustration in the label, where number 1 shows, there is a representation of a mountain making a composition together with other elements in the label. The typography is well used, with different areas of the bottle interacting with each other, thus being harmonic. The supposed transparent goose (number 2) is interesting and shows a new perspective to use these elements, making a composition with the front and back illustrations. The cap analyzed (number 3) has the brand printed on top and th seal also has an attractive element, using the beverage’s name. In the color variations, different types of blue are well used, be it on typing or the images. 2

Analyzing the Label

Grey Goose


049


Typography

Absolut This brand uses a mix of clean and handwritten type. The main font family here is Futura Condensed Extra Bold. Both fonts come in harmony because the main element (the words “Absolut Vodka”) have a bigger impact on the consumer at first. The highlight on th name already attracts enough attention and the handwritten font is a consequence, being read after the understanding of the brand.

ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz 1234567890

Grey Goose Totally different from the above, this one has a more elaborate tipography, very detailed, with th goose’s image interfering the label. The dominant font is Baskerville Regular. This font shows a more exclusive aspect than the other example for being a more detailed type, giving away the impression that it was almost made exclusively to whoever bought it.

ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz 1234567890

050


Smirnoff This font family is called Bell Centennial Standard. A clean and direct type, it doesn’t have the sofistication of the others, but for being a more popular vodka, its communication must be good, but it fails in a few elements like the drop shadow used in the product’s name and the use of perspective, which makes the consumer more confused than decided when going to buy the product, because the reading becomes complicated.

ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz 1234567890

051


Color Analysis

Absolut The dark colors, that almost reach black have a characteristic of being considered sofisticated. The black and white are considered maximum contrasts so that the reading can be easily done when these two elements are together.

Dark Blue (C 100% M 100%)

Black

White

Grey Goose The main color in this label is blue, with a few variations, it stands with the white in some areas, which is an acceptable composition. The black and white again are considered maximum contrasts so that the reading is well placed when the two elements are combined.

Dark Blue (C 100% M 100%)

Light Blue

052


Smirnoff With red being the dominant color, the bottle highlights itself amongst the other two, but its package makes the consumer think that it is a common product. Has details in green that go well agaist red, but the gray around the label does not make a good stand.

Red (C 100% M 100%)

Green (C 100% Y 100%)

Black

White

Conclusion After all this analysis, we can conclude that the chosen brand (Grey Goose), is in acceptance with the standards of a premium vodka packaging project. Absolut also has an elevated level of sofistication and answers all pre-requisites of an elegant product.

Concept Definitions Being New York the chosen city for this product, the objective was to look for reference about the city that were considered interesting enough to be recogized by the customer.

The typography used was taken from the original packaging of the brand, for easy reading in areas like legislation and general consumer information.

The images that were analyzed showed a specific color variation and appropriate for the chromatic definitions in th final product, be it the bottle itself or the packaging. On the next chapter these colors will be explained. Most of the elements from the final version of the product were taken from reference images shown earlier in this book. Archiectural reference was researched for the overall shape of the bottle, historical pictures and memorable photos we analyzed and led to early sketches and illustrations for the final product.

The Project The new product was created starting with a few collected parameters during the research, resulting in the objective of this work. The briefing was created to boost sales for the brand, it states that the product must be from a new theme segment, non-existing in the current Grey Goose product line, where the first will be an experiment on creating its packaging with a theme from a city around the world. As shown earlier, the chosen city was New York and its suggested audience is the wealthy and busy man.

The brand wraps up new values to the new theme, it becomes daring, practical, sofisticated, exclusive and confident. Functional beneficts like the convenient packaging makes it easy to carry anywhere which will be shown on the Mockups chapter. Reason to Believe (RTB) “Because only Grey Goose New York is made exclusively for the celebrations in your life wherever you be.”

The consumer stated: “I want a product made exclusively for me with the sofistication that I deserve.” The new product carries with it the differential to allow the consumer to celebrate its achievements as he really deserves.

04.1.2


Shapes The shapes were takes from architectural elements of New York. Its Art DĂŠco reference shows robust geometric lines, the concrete dominates in most constructions and the straight angles inspire the creation mainly of the box for this product. The concept for this box is inspired on the doors and entrances of buildings in New York.

Its small doors hide their interior, leaving mistery to who looks from the outside, but as they come in, always become fascinated by their impressive and sofisticated interiors, be them hotels of luxury residences.

Shapes

The Bottle For the shape, the chosen element was the iconic Brooklyn bridge. Its inner arch became an interesting visual element for the bottle, which resembles the local architecture. The sketches on the sides of these onÊNovÊ2nd,Ê2009 MeasurementsÊandÊScale FilipeÊDalÊGallo two pages show the starting studies, the desired angle along thebottle and some reference of existing shapes in the market.

But after applying this shape on the bottle, it didn’t resemble traditional vodka bottles, but some sort of oil recipient or even a water bottle.


To go around this problem, another architectural element was found, another well-known building is th Chrysler Building. Its curves and angles on the top side are perfect to create the neck area of the bottle.

04.1.4


Composition The main element on the label, placed almost in the center of the bottle, was created based on one of the most known landscapes in New York, its own skyline seen from across the river. This post card was used asa base for such composition, putting together image elements with simple linework of what becomes a representation of this skyline. Another memorable aspect was to gather recently discovered shapes and make them interact with another unique icon, the Empire State Building. Using the same linework language, the silhouette of the building was created and the final composition was created for the label. Figure 18.

The back part of the label has a text that talks about th suggested audience for this product. For each future themed bottle, the text will adapt to the city and the public chosen. Images for these areas of the lavel will be shown at the final product unveiling chapter.

04. Ergonomics

04.1.5


Ergonomics In aspect of ergonomics of the bottle, the main objective of this project is to make it with the most convenient way to be handled, so the consumer has a better feel to it compared to the competition.

Tests were made with a few candidates and the images show the competition’s product against the final product of this project, where the latter showed much more satisfaction to the customer.

Figure 21.

This was achieved by making a simple and almost unnoticeable change to its overall shape. The bottle was created with a 1º angle that starts at its base and goes all th way up to the neck curve. The specifications of this can be found on the Technical Details chapter.

Conclusion The final product was created based on all the research shown earlier and by putting together all the collected information on the areas of color, shape and composition. By analyzing reference imagery, the main shapes for the bottle, the label and the package were put together harmonically and by that communicate to the consumer exactly what the briefing was describing. The sofistication, the glamour and ease of use were all inserted naturally in the final product after the deep analysis of the main elements needed to make a new vodka bottle. The flag creation was another important challenge overcome by maintaing in the final image all the known elements and essential colors so that the flag was recognized by anyone.

05. Materials

05.3


Materials

For the bottle, standard glass was used for the type of product (in this case vodka). The label was applied directly on the glass, without the presence of any thin layer of plastic or similar material. Everything was made with paint and the cold stamping method for the chrome look. The cap was made with brushed alluminum, without any elements, to maintain a high level of simplicity and sofistication. The box was created using wood, painted with non-glossy black car paint and the brand was applied with cold stamping for the chrome effect in front of the box. Inside it, there is a thick foam coating that houses the bottle and the glasses together, with their respective shapes for easy fitting.

05.4


Legislation

The laws used for this packaging project were taken from the Alcohol and Tobacco Tac and Trade Bureau (TTB), and international organ that regulates the theme here shown, each year it checks more thn 100 thousand label of alcoholic beverages to verify if they are in agreement with the law so the consumer doesn’t get confused when buying th product.

1.75 L, 750 ml, 375 ml, 200ml, 100ml or 50ml.

This work must contain the regulation imposed by the TTB as follows:

– Vodka Is defined as a neutral distilled beverage, without any aroma, flavor or color. Like gin, the vodka label must show how many times the product was distilled.

– The label must have the brand of the company that produces the liquid. The name of the brand is used to identify and stock the distilled product. The brand must not make the consumer question him/herself about his/her age, identity, origin and other characteristics on the product.

– Type of beverage The brand must specify with precision what type of alcoholic beverage is inside the package sold. For example:

– Name and address. The producer’s name and address must be visible on the label. However, the producer’s office address may be used, making it not obligated to put the exact factory’s address. – Alcoholic level. A citation about the alcoholic level must be present on the label, in the form of percentage (%). – Health warnings. By law, this information must be put on any alcoholic beverage that has a 0.5% or more alcoholic level by volume. – Country of origin. The TTB and the US Customs (place where this product will be sold) require information about the country of origin that this product is imported from. – Liquid content. The package must tell the customer how much liquid is inside the product. Vodka must be bottled in sizes no other than

Market Shelves This chapter shows the final product alongside with its competition on a sales stand, to show the success in achiving the goal of this project. The bottle definetely arises curiosity on anyone that passes through a supermarket or licquor store shelf, the brand printed on the front label makes the consumer of the competition at least stops to see what this product is about. It is taller than the competition, also getting a little edge when on more spaced areas.

07. Final Conclusion

07.


Final Conclusion This project had a big change during its execution all year long. Each month, a new and important detail or chnge was discovered and the project changed a bit. The biggest challenge was to create a brand new visual identity compared to the original vodka bottle. This work is a vision for a product that could help the brand to get a boost in sales worldwide and also to show that the work of a designer is not as simple as most people think. When well executed the result is always satisfactory.

With the research, everything became clearer and more expressive. The graphics found and reference images studied showed that research is a fundamental step for a designer to conclude any job with success and with the quality it deserves.

Every step of the creation process in this work was thoroughly researched and revised and it is believed to have achieved success.
