ASDS - Suppliers of Ideas & Impulses

Moonshine Meadery

Identity  , Nomenclature  , Packaging
Ronin Wines, Pune FMCG

The client approached us with a plan of producing and selling Mead – an alcoholic beverage made by fermenting honey. Considering the ambition of being Asia’s First Meadery, there was a need to create an identity that was distinct yet neutral enough to allow the brand to scale across geographies. The inspiration for the identity is drawn from alphabet charts used in Kindergarten, where word associations like “A for Apple” and “B for Ball” are first formed.

It connects with words that are seminal in language and learning and ties in to the association of Moonshine Meadery being the the first of its kind and a true pioneer. While solid colours were used to segregate the types of flavours, the identity is type centric in terms of design. The usage of a red line in the primary identity also features across communication and multiple touch points.

PIZZ-O

Identity  , Nomenclature  , Packaging
Pure Pizza LLP, Mumbai FMCG

Branding and packaging design for a frozen pizza brand. Being a product category that’s uncommon in local supermarkets but has tremendous potential for growth, the name ‘Pizzo’ was proposed as a word that becomes generic and synonymous with frozen pizzas. The primary identity suggests the feeling of satisfaction that is associated with the product. The design language exemplifies the product attributes – simple, convenient and wholesome.

The Formist Group

Identity
The Formist Group, Bengaluru Real Estate

Branding a real-estate developer. This new-age organisation was started by a group of experienced architects with a desire to create. The idea of creating forms is a nod to the Bauhaus movement which was the inspiration behind the creation of the name and the identity.

Shamiana

Communication  , Identity
IHCL Hotels, Mumbai Hospitality

After renovations were completed at Mumbai’s first all day diner, we were approached to create a design language that carries forward the diner’s legacy and introduces it to a new generation. Tag-lines used during the launch used humour to create a dichotomy between the old and the new.

The applications extended themselves across multiple collateral, merchandise and in-stadia graphics.

Svara by Taj

Identity  , Packaging
IHCL Hotels, Mumbai FMCG

An unconventional wine label design, which plays tribute to the quintessential Indian musical instrument, the Bansuri. Portrayed using a bold and minimal style, the iconic silhouette of the Bansuri appears distinctive, just as it sounds. The melody of the Bansuri playfully hints at the various ‘svaras’ of wine.

Re-branding an infrastructure and real-estate developer in Hyderabad. The logo uses an abstract representation of the Cartesian System, a fundamental tool used in construction to determine an object’s position in a 3 dimensional space.

Glide

Identity  , Nomenclature
Glide Insurance Pvt. Ltd. Finance

The word ‘Insurance’ seems daunting for many people and finding the right insurance product can feel complex to the average Joe. It was the clients’ mission to challenge this by projecting an image of simplicity and lightness. We arrived at the name ‘Glide’ and the positioning of ‘Effortless Insurance’. The identity is inspired by the movement of ice-skaters and the smooth, extending lines that stay embedded on the ice. The colour creates a sense of warmth and openness and is also distinct in this sector.

Booyah

Identity
Indigo Deli, Mumbai Hospitality

Branding concept for a Deli. As the objective was to create a highly distinctive identity, the name ‘Booyah’ was suggested as it is a term used to express joy or triumph, within the urban youth culture. The graphic language uses a fresh colour palette with geometric line forms for the logo and icon graphics. The container emerging from an exclamation mark adds a sense of weight and excitement to the logo unit. The visual language then carries itself forward through the entire space via environmental graphics, interiors and furniture design.

Picture This

Identity
Picture This, Mumbai Healthcare

Dr. Bhavin Jankharia, a popular radiologist in Mumbai, approached us with the desire to create an identity that’s unique and stands out in the healthcare sector. The identity rekindles a sense of amazement by bringing forth the absolute science of being able to see images within the body.

The dynamic identity derives its visual language from the consolidation of the 11 body systems that lead to our sustenance.

Gemini Cinemas

Identity
Gemini Cinemas, Chennai Hospitality

Re-branding a movie theatre. This iconic theatre in Chennai carries over 60 years of cinema legacy.

This distinctive language made its way across tickets, popcorn holders, soda cups and other items used by most movie goers.

One 10

Communication  , Identity
One Ten Digital, Dubai & Mumbai Marketing & Technology

A few examples of residential projects that we branded for the Embassy Group, the largest real-estate developer in Bengaluru.
