The secret to this best-selling supplement label? A second chance

May 18, 2022 09:08 AM

We coordinated with Beyond Yourself’s design team on their newest flavor line, Grape White North. This included finishes and embellishments that elevated their already unique concept from good to great.

The result was a best-selling label they can barely keep on the shelves, along with iconic new branding that encapsulates the company's broader mission to honor its home nation, Canada.

"It was awesome to work together because we had the time to understand each other — and the print samples really turned out amazing. I said what I needed and how I needed it and they were able to be flexible enough to come to the table,” Beyond Yourself's owner said.

But designing the label was the easy part. The real win was regaining the company's trust — and keeping it. Because this wasn't the first time we'd worked with Beyond Yourself.

Mar 16, 2022 07:15 AM

Shampoo and conditioner labels must reflect customers’ desire for health and elegance.

But performance matters as much as the message. Labels must be durable enough to stand up to hot water daily. No one wants labels that split from their bottles — leaving an unsightly residue that sticks to your hands just as you’re trying to wash.

Shampoo and conditioner labels need to be like Michelle Kwan: elegant yet strong. Looks alone won’t cut it in the bathroom. Trust us, we’ve been in the bath and beauty business for a while now.

Jun 07, 2021 08:00 AM

Labels aren’t purely a cost. They’re also an investment in your brand, and deeply affect how consumers perceive your products.

To many consumers, your label is an extension of your brand and, in fact, the label branding — not the product — is often what entices them to put your product in their cart.

Recent neuromarketing studies corroborate this, revealing that minor label material and design changes have a major impact on how consumers perceive products at point-of-purchase.
