The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf: Limited Edition Iced Tea and Limited Edition Sparkling Iced Tea

Brand: The Coffee Bean & Tea LeafTitle(s): Limited Edition Iced Tea and Limited Edition Sparkling Iced TeaAgency: The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf (in-house), Los Angeles, USAAgency website: http://coffeebean.comCreative Director: Ross PatrickArt Director: Danielle DuranPublished: 2013Short rationale (optional): The concept was to be bright, refreshing and innovative. The biggest challenge was to visually communicate carbonated to non-carbonated, the fruit flavour and that it is, iced tea in a can. We wanted to stand out with a bold design, but still maintain a classic and clean look. The wrap around design used colour to distinguish between the different flavours and whether it’s sparkling or regular iced tea. The geometric shapes allowed the can to be masculine, but by fusing the bright colour, the cans still kept a feminine edge. And we were able to subliminally create a tea leaf on the front of the can as well. It was a fun process and we love the end result.

Naughtyfish Design: (Insiders) branding

Brand: Sydney Opera houseTitle(s): (Insiders)Agency: Name, City, Country: Naughtyfish design, Sydney, AustraliaAgency website: http://www.naughtyfish.com.auCreative Director: Paul GarbettAdditional credits: Designer: Paul Garbett, Danielle de AndradePublished: July 2013Short rationale (optional): (Insiders) is Sydney Opera House’s membership program. It was launched in a bid to nurture customer loyalty, increase market share of sales and raise the average frequency of attendance at the House.The assignment was to evolve the (Insiders) identity to meet the changing focus of the program and to represent the shifting perceptions around the SOH brand – most importantly that the House should be experienced, not just admired. We positioned (Insiders) as a retail product, with greater focus on communicating the value proposition for members. The most distinctive art of the identity is the Chevron element, a shape found as a repeating element on the sails of the House. As well as serving as a flexible design element, it is also an effective metaphor for membership (in the same way that the shapes are a part of the House, membership offers the opportunity to be part of the house too).The project involved trademark design, posters, welcome pack, brochures, membership card, digital advertising and brand guidelines.
