Virgin has launched its latest venture – Virgin Pure, a new brand partnership with Strauss Water to capture the consumer drinking water market.
Created by FutureBrand over the past 18 months it marks the first time that an external partner has worked with Virgin on a launch such as this and also the first time that Virgin has partnered with a business.
With the strapline ‘Virgin Pure, Improving life with Strauss Water’ the partnership aims to employ the strengths of both brands to entice consumers with their proposition.
They employed FutureBrand to create a new name, positioning, logo, typography, visual identity, values and tone of voice for the new brand, balancing two strong brands without watering down either,
