THE POWER OF KEY VISUALS

KEY VISUALS is a concept, a way of representing or organizing an information under a visual scheme. It can either be a graphic organization or a diametrical representation. Key visuals represents the conceptual relationships between object, events or situations.

KEY VISUALS & YOUR BRAND’S IDENTITY

Key Visuals are essential to a brand’s identity, it is vital that people recognize the visual, to recognize the brand. Therefore the image needs to be simple, clear, striking and powerful, to be imprinted in peoples mind. And it is shown that people recognize or remember a picture after seeing it at least 3 times.

As key visuals will represent your company, your key visuals need to be correlated to the brand image you want to expose. This is a long research work to find the best representation. The best way to come up with a lot of ideas is to collaborate and work on key visuals with specialists.

BE RECOGNIZED

The Key Visual of a company is an individual and specific image that is identified for a brand it self. For example, Mcdonald’s logo, the red and the yellow are specific colors, imaging you change them ? Lighter red and darker yellow or even purple and orange !? In your mind it would not be Mcdonalds anymore… If you change the color, the specificity and recognition will also change.

YOUR KEY VISUALS & BLUE SPICE

As a co-design agency, we can help you to create and design your key visuals and also to adapt them on all your marketing tools to insure a coherence between your brand and the image from your brand.

Brand logos are part of key visuals but they are not the only ones. In order for a logo or key visual to be efficient it really needs to by comprehensible, unique and adapted to the target group. Key Visuals and visual communication are tightly linked (please refer to the previous article written about visual communication).

KEY VISUALS ARE ESSENTIAL

Key Visuals are essential to lock a brand’s leadership in order to affirm and reinforce it’s identity. It is also important to master some codes in order to facilitate a certain domination over the market.

GOOD PRODUCT+ NEW USE + KEY VISUALS = SUCCESS!

Ex : before we would bite in a piece of chocolate, now we spread chocolate on bread, and this is called NUTELLA !

Packaging functions
Moodboards packaging blue spice

Everything starts with mood-boards

  • What is the product ?
  • What is the target audience/markets/competitors
  • What makes your product different ?
  • What are you distribution channels ?

All these questions are essential before designing your packaging.

We carefully study your market and competitors in order to suggest a packaging that will enhance your product in comparaison to the others…

Packaging concept & materials selection

Taking your budget into account, we will select different materials and concepts for your packaging.

Materials could be (but not only):

– cardboard / paper

– PT (transparent plastic)

– Blister and paper

– wood/ leather / PU leather

– Fabric

or a mix of several materials.

 

On the right, please find an example of a blister tray we have designed. This element will be wrapped in a cardboard box with a plastic window in order to show off the products inside.

Create a unique artwork to distinguish your products on shelf.

Once the materials and the size of the packaging have been defined, we create a unique artwork to decorate, inform and make your packaging outstanding.

The customer needs to have his attention directly attracted to your item and then need to understand in one glance what is your product.

Keep in mind that the artwork plays a great part in your packaging and that even a paper bag can look very attractive and/or very different with an unique illustration.

Work closely with the factory for your packaging to be turned to life.

As industrial designers, we work closely with the factories through the whole production process.

Die-cuts (flat design of your packaging that includes the invisible lines for cutting and folding) are elaborated in collaboration with the producer.

We will make sure special printing effects are indicated, clear and understood by the factories (foil printing, stamping…)

Once the sample is produced, we make sure everything is perfect and will correct details if needed in order for your final packaging to be outstanding.

When packaging is part of the product

This packaging bellow was developed from scratch for a welcome pack for Huyndai. It is a part of the product itself.

We defined the concept (what I would like to get when I buy a car?), researched the materials in accordance to the brand’s identity (PT, brushed metal, foam) and designed the packaging with the opening system.
