What can we do
We don't view a project as being either 'creative' or 'effective'. To us, both categories are essentially the same. We seek to identify the target customers' real drivers and obstacles and get to the bottom of their actual needs. We explore hypotheses, build brand positioning solutions and use our in-house developed tools.
consumer branding
corporate branding
The consumer market is a dynamically changing sector that requires utmost attention to detail and a good grasp of trends. For any brand, a missed opportunity means instant and utter failure. At the same time, this is exactly what makes creating effective solutions for this segment so exciting.
We study the company, its corporate code and ambitions. Then we rethink the information we have obtained factoring in the marketing context, the insights of competition analysis and global best practices.
Our work includes several phases:
What we can do for you:

YOUR BRAND
We know how to help a brand localize in a foreign market. We do know how it has to look, feel and sound in Russian - unlike manyof the brands who have ventured into the Russian market all on their own.

The new opportunities and gaps in the market look really enticing. Meanwhile, the Russian language is very
nuanced and so is the country's cultural code. Here, you can ruin your first impression before you even know it.

СAVIAR FAMILY
When you say caviar, you think luxury. Those who can afford it are usually described as having been
born with a silver spoon in their mouths. We decided to put a twist on the old saying and create a
distinctive brand mascot who seems to have been born with a grain of caviar in its mouth, instead of
the silver spoon. The mascot is smiling deviously and sticks out its tongue, on which a grain of caviar
can be seen. Luxury no longer has to rely on gold coating or overloaded imagery - in fact, it can be
cheerful, genial and playful. And, most importantly, it can also be highly visible.

FOOD: Gourmet foods 2021
We find environmental responsibility and sustainable consumption truly inspirational, so our idea was
'REinvent, not OVERproduce'. This is how we came up with our Multivase - a thing that defies
'thingism' and excessive consumption. Its transparent, ESG-friendly nature is what makes it a perfect
corporate gift that addresses every environmental concern that modern companies may have about
promotional products

PULPY
The Pulpy brand lacked a coherent communication startegy for the digital space. This is why we
developed a detailed guidebook and a template base for all the formats of online communications. As
part of the project, we defined the rules for using each of the brand's key visuals in different channels
and established the digital communication procedure for the various channels used by the brand.

What do drivers and advertising agencies have in common? Both need to have an eye for every little

WHITE SQUARE
Packaging Design 2020
Our task was to build a philosophy and design the packaging for Polezzno's new line of healthy
grains. Small packages for those who eat like a bird. A brand that targets women who are mindful
about their diet. The picky eaters who care about the quality of products they use. Everyone out there
who is looking for ways to diversify their diet while watching their serving sizes.
This beautiful branding project was inspired by the taste... that is quintessential Lapland.
For the brand's new line of yogurts, we created a package design that was the epitome of the North.
We reinvented Finland's traditions and came up with spot-on imagery which enabled the product to
win shelf-space and the hearts of the customers.

FOOD: Dairy and soya based products 2021
A metaphor-packed case for what may seem a 'mundane' thing - disposable gloves. We created a
brand that is absolutely unique for the B2B segment, one that communicates its key value proposition through the name and visuals alone. The package apperas to be covered with tight-fitting glove material that realistically reproduces the product's texture. Under the surface of the material, there seems to be a sharp object that could potentially cut through the material. Only it does not - it just stretches the elastic top layer. No wonder, because this is Stoic - a product that can withstand any daily wear and tear you may encounter.

We provided 360-degree total-care services for the first brand promoting a holistic approach to
skincare. We helped the brand build a new skincare culture that is based on improving skin health. In addition to brand positioning development and packaging design, we created a comprehensive

Packaging design for La-Kri, a line of skincare products. The brand has so much care to give that you can take a break from being an adult and be a kid again. This is why we felt we needed something more than just a package design: we created a whole new world, one that feels cozy and seems to be inspired by fairy-tales. The emotionally charged original graphics shaped the product's unique image and created a special atmosphere of kindness, serenity and harmony that the brand projects.

Asepta oral care product line rebrand. Now that the brand targeted a wider audience, it identified three main segments: therapeutic products, oral health products and children's products. The three product lines share a single key visual - the capital letter 'A' that makes a strong reference to the cross – the traditional symbol of medicine. The front panel of the package has two layers: the constant 'medical' element and a variable one that clearly states the purpose and the target audience of the line.

This was one our most inspirational branding projects. We were tasked with brand positioning
development and identity design for Uzbekistan's top hockey team.
We used in-depth research to come up with a concept that was about the power to bring people
together and be a team, about the nation's nonconfrontational identity and its rich traditions. The
approach was pretty unusual for hockey where rough play has always been part of the game.

Patties by Miratorg are the right kind of ready-to-cook food made to the brand's highest manufacturing standards. To highlight the 'clean' list of ingredients and the idea that the patties are easy to cook, we used chaste pastel colours and minimalist visuals for the package design, with an image of a fried patty as the central focus.

A product that is made using a unique cooking technology. The chicken is first baked and then placed in a high-temperature infrared tunnel oven for perfect browning.
648 stands for the temperature that is essential for getting that signature golden chicken skin. Most of the communication's effect is achieved not by the label itself, but by the innovative material that is used for packaging. The foil package highlights the technology used for cooking the chicken and communicates the brand's commitment to innovation.

DYNAMIC VISUAL IDENTITY

Rebranding for Armenia's first private insurance company. Historically, both interpersonal and
business communication in Armenia has always involved a lot of personal networking. This is why we used a metaphor of dialogue and face-to-face communication as the basis for the company's new visual identity. The brand's revamped logo is the initial capital letter of the brand name that is
composed of two speech bubbles in vivid colours – a metaphor of informal dialogue, of human talk.
The logo is also designed to resemble a shield that stands for security and a focus on the clients and their wellbeing.
