The KaDeWe Group

BACKGROUND

As a part of the branding and decorating Christmas concept for KaDeWe, Alsterhaus and Oberpollinger 2019, a series of illustrations were requested to be applicable for different communication tools. The topic of the window display designs comprised different fun loving and quirky sets of nutcrackers, all of which needed to be translated into a graphic format.

RESULT

Fifteen different nutcracker personalities from the window display concept, each detailed, illustrated and transformed into a graphic design. With these newly formed figures we developed a design for the KaDeWe Group’s yearly Christmas cards, praline packaging and additional tools supporting the window display unveiling celebration.

Alverde

BACKGROUND

With over 970 outlets across Germany dm-drogerie markt is Germany’s largest drugstore chain. Belonging to DM, Alverde is the most well-known nature cosmetic brand in the country. Alverde is recognised as an authentic, experienced and proven bio-cosmetic brand.

Through market research, trend spotting, brand positioning and a 3-step gradual upgrade of the label- and packaging design we worked out a strategy of how to emotionalise and strengthen the branding. We asked which visual approach would make the brand appear more innovative, amplify originality and strengthen its authenticity while still being respectful to its history.

Team: Judith Mair, Floor Kuitert

RESULT

An updated logo and packaging design that dare change. We consciously removed everything that was unnecessary to give space for what´s essential through using reduced forms, motifs and colours. Less green, a straightforward color coding and clear content aimed to simplify the product’s benefits and underline its credibilities.
