relevant Case studies
Sweety Novelty, Inc. is a manufacturer of ice cream, popsicles, and mochi ice cream. The newest generation in this family-owned company is looking to resurrect and bring new life to the brand, which hasn't been updated since the 1980s. They plan to narrow the focus to their mochi products at first. It will be important for the re-brand to maintain the spirit and intent of the original, while appealing to a new generation of consumers. The re-brand will include a strategy that can be implemented across product packaging, web design, and marketing materials.

After each step in the process, we will meet or check in, making sure we are addressing concerns and moving forward with approval at every stage.
PHASE ONE: LOOK & FEEL
MAY 29 - JUNE 6
This phase will begin with creating a “Look & Feel” board on Pinterest. Using images across a wide range of design types and elements, including typography, color schemes, layout, imagery, and packaging, this board will serve as a reference point as we move forward with the designs.
Based on your feedback, we will edit the board, adding and removing images until it accurately represents our vision for the project.
