Karen Welman, founding partner and chief creative officer at Pearlfisher commented, “It had been a lifelong ambition of our client's to create a high-quality nutrient brand that is clearly differentiated from supplement brands that are low in quality and grade of ingredients. “The idea was to create an impactful visual story using the metaphor of beautiful and elegant birds that have hidden strength. The brand name – Strong – and the playful variant names and descriptors are simple yet impactful and clearly communicate the brand’s promise of inner strength and outer beauty. Pearlfisher created custom hand-drawn typography for the brand name and commissioned a series of bespoke bird illustrations that bring to life the product benefits in an unexpected and emotive way. For example, for ‘brain box’ an owl was used to communicate how the powerful combination of cutting edge nutrients promotes optimal brain performance, whilst a bright yellow canary was used for the ‘sunshine pill’ to illustrate the end benefit of a radiant, healthier immune system and stronger bones. The end result is visually arresting creating strong visibility both in retail and online environments.”

The exhibit is Interflora’s third Chelsea Gold Medal winning design in recent years and demonstrates the exceptional skill and creativity of the florists involved, and the introduction of Mynt’s design to the stand’s overall look and feel.Bill Warren, Mynt’s Creative Director says: “The challenge was to capture the key eras and their associated authentic props whilst establishing a backdrop for the florists creations & displays to work within. The installation of the large scale architectural open frames initially defined the space which we then linked with a physical, fluid ribbon structure to the perimeter. This outer ribbon carried the timeline communication graphics and established a connection with each themed zone. A great collaboration from The Interflora team, combined with our design concept and direction delivered the objective of securing a gold at Chelsea!”
