Brand: StoatsTitle(s): RebrandHeadline and copy text (in English): Porridge To The People!Agency: Robot Food, Leeds, EnglandAgency website: http://www.robot-food.comCreative Director: Simon ForsterArt Director: Martin WiddowfieldCopywriter: Simon ForsterIllustrator: Martin WiddowfieldPhotographer: Martin WiddowfieldAdditional credits: Julia Allan, Mike ShawPublished: June 2013Short rationale (optional): Stoats Porridge has unveiled a major rebrand, masterminded by specialist consultancy, Robot Food. Stoats is a Scottish oats company with a passion for all things porridge and a focus on oat innovation. The company approached Robot Food due to its expertise in developing brand personality. The brief was to build upon the compelling brand story adding vibrancy and ownable IP to the packaging.Formed in 2005, Stoats converted an American hot dog trailer, to sell hot porridge with generous, natural, tasty toppings at summer music festivals. The young company went on to develop a range of retail products including the world’s first porridge oat bars, which include favorite flavour combinations that have helped the brand to grow. With the porridge aisle leaders focusing on traditional brand values as a worthy proposition, Stoats found a gap in the market for a vibrant, young company that would push the porridge bandwagon.

BrandOpus: Tangerine Confectionery's Candyland

Brand: CandylandTitle(s): BrandOpus helps Tangerine Confectionery look to the future with the creation of CandylandHeadline and copy text (in English): BrandOpus has worked with the UK’s leading independent manufacturer of sugar confectionery, Tangerine, to create Candyland, a single consumer-facing brand that will consolidate their wide portfolio of sugar confectionery brands, including Wham Bars. Working with the key theme of “embracing nonsense”, BrandOpus has created the concept of Candyland, a magical world where all sweets come from in the form of brand identity, packaging and point of sale materials.Agency: BrandOpus, London, UKAgency website: http://www.brandopus.comCreative Director: Paul TaylorDesign Director: Kate JonesIllustrator: BrandOpus in collaboration with Jelly LondonAdditional Credits: Account Director: Nicky RubinsAccount Manager: Ali DawkinsPublished: July 2013Short Rationale (optional): BrandOpus were briefed to create a new brand that unifies Tangerine’s sugar confectionery portfolio in order to maximize growth potential. The portfolio was previously divided between many diverse but deeply cherished and recognisable products such as Dip Dab & Refreshers under brand names such as Princess, Barratt and Henry Goode.From the brief it was clear that the agency needed to create an evocative brand; one that offered sweets to transport the consumer back to the bright, innocent happiness of childhood.Working with the key theme of “embracing nonsense”, BrandOpus created the concept of Candyland, a magical world where all sweets come from. The visual identity is represented by the fantastical airship, ever present on and off pack, transporting the consumer to Candyland, and between the different areas within.The agency segmented and named the ranges by a product type and attributed them a ‘zone’ within Candyland, such as Refreshers Reef, Olde Town, Cosy Meadows and Wham Planet. This allows the ranges to each deliver their different propositions, whilst still sitting under a unified, single brand. Each range has its own distinctive look, feel and recognisable colourway to aid portfolio navigation.The new identity allows the brand to be immediately recognisable, contributing a positive halo effect of the brand values across the entire portfolio which encourages consumer cross purchase. Candyland affords strong brand standout and ease of navigation for the consumer at point of retail.
