Bullfix

How does the mighty bull charge for attention?

From online to retail ready we were challenged to take this innovative brand and give it the strength, credibility and shelf standout to demand attention and loyalty from both the trade and home users.

The gorilla of plasterboard fixings.  No Bull!

Engineered with precision by Mark Howe and Matthew Statham, we knew that this impressive product stood out from the crowd. Our challenge was to make sure that this ambitious brand did too.

Disparate and unloved, Asda's Organic range lacked consistent brand assets with no clear graphical signpost in store or online. It needed a fresh and cohesive new look, that would be instantly recognisable in a busy and saturated

store environment.

SNIFFING OUT THE ISSUES.

We visited store and reviewed the packaging, presenting the following observations:

• The packaging lacked familiar natural cues. The turquoise background and tropical leaves felt appropriate for the human plant-based category.
• The paw graphic was not an ownable asset.
• At shelf, differentiation was a big problem between cat, dog and the different pack formats.
• The packs lacked food appeal, with no emotional connection for pet parents.
• The overpackaged and shiny bags felt artificial and made legibility poor at shelf.

To really get under the skin of the brand, we immersed ourselves in the competitor landscape, carrying out stakeholder workshops in Germany to find out what makes them unique. We engaged with all departments, from design to supply chain, to discover the brand’s DNA and get everyone behind the new brand strategy.

The Dawat wordmark stands tall and proud, subtly crafted to add an Indian flair. The central and open stance of the ‘W’ kicks off the joyful and optimistic vibe of the identity.

We created a new identity for Faye, using the shape of speech marks in the logo to represent self-expression and emphasise the self-affirming tone of voice. To represent the audience of the ‘Faye sisterhood’, all photography and illustrations were natural and unedited, a celebration of diversity and individuality.

Grabbing the retail space by the horns.

Modernising the bull and mimicking graphic elements within the logo mark created a more distinctive and credible brand identity.  Additional assets were created to ensure that the presence of the bull was undeniable on every brand platform.

Thanks to our rebrand, Faye now represents and celebrates female confidence, quirks and contradictions… unapologetic and unfiltered.

By adding ‘Your’ to the brand name, developing a more personal tone-of-voice, and focusing on a human-centric photography style, we created a collection of own-able brand assets that showcase the one-to-one service Your Engine Room provides. To pay homage to the original logo, the cog was pulled into the imagery and the graphics were evolved to become softer and warmer, effectively symbolising Your Engine Room's vision of being an integral part of their clients team.

Transitioning from online to retail and trade outlets requires a powerful brand that commands respect from professional tradesmen looking for a reliable solution when hanging very heavy objects from plasterboard walls.

PERFECTLY BLENDED.

We created a suite of bespoke illustrations that combine the fluidity of the painted backgrounds with layered collage elements.  The backgrounds evoke liquid infusion, whist the surprising colour combinations of the cut out style botanicals and ingredients add depth, blending traditional and modern aesthetics seamlessly.

THE book
OF FAYE.

We designed a comprehensive brand book, so the internal team could immerse themselves in the new world of Faye. Beautifully designed, the layered transparent pages reflect the layering of Faye jewellery, a tactile brand book, it has a premium magazine feel, that audiences will want to engage with and keep.

WHAT’S IN STORE?

Our logo radiates happiness, with the sunshine yellow and roof motif symbolising the joy of home. The “SO” lockup adds a conversational tone to headers, perfect for nifty statements and customer reviews. With thoughtful design at the heart of the brand, our sketch style annotations nod back to Kin’s internal product design team and the care and attention that goes into the creation of every product.

HAPPY HOUSEHOLDS.

Asda invested heavily in increasing and diversifying the budget friendly range. It now stretches into every household category from beans to bleach, cat litter and even shampoo, keeping price sensitive households running with all their weekly staples.

Asda invested heavily in gold foil across the whole of the Christmas range to elevate, raising quality perceptions even further.

Small but mighty.

The strong black packaging and large brand mark creates irrefutable shelf standout, demanding to be noticed in a sea of small euro-hooked products.  Easy instructions were key to communicating the credibility and ease of these products. From single use TV hanging packs to large trade packs Bullfix has it covered.

Antenatal & Anti-fluff.

2021 saw the birth of their Expert Antenatal Classes, a modern approach taught exclusively by registered nurses. From the existing brand architecture we developed a suite of assets born from an ultrasound scan, the logo represents both an ‘M’ and the shape of the baby. This is then used as a fluid line acting as a connector between mum-to-be and the antenatal community.

An Italian Classic, mastered in Yorkshire.

A fresh take on an Italian classic, our new Lemon and Orancello designs combine modern, graphical shapes nodding back to the Wolfe Bros branding, paired with a striking raised black gloss varnish giving the bottles a strong bar worthy presence contrasting against our warm, rich colour palette, instantly transporting you to a sun-drenched piazza, spritz in hand!

Bullfix has now launched into trade giant, Screwfix, with a bang, attracting professional tradeseman, guaranteeing much needed repeat purchases for this strong as a ox product. Proving yet again, it's the little things that make big things possible!

OurCreative did a great job for us.  They helped us transform our packaging to really stand out and look fantastic.  They took time to understand our products, our customers and what our key messages were.

Nothing was too much trouble with multiple small iterations and great 3D previews so we could see what it might look like in store!
