Protelicious makes completely natural whey protein powder that is known for its flavor and simplicity - qualities that they’ve taken great care and pride to concoct and provide.
But how do you take protein powder - which is traditionally connected to fitness training - and give it broader appeal to something like a treat, or meal replacement? This was at the core of the challenge that Island Supplements brought to us during their rebranding to Protelicious.
Natalie - Cofounder @ Protelicious
We pursued many different solutions early on as the goals for this project were broad and many. The major goal we pursued was to keep the logo simplistic in nature so that it would exude refinement, and also help tell the brand’s story - with a few simple ingredients, the team at Protelicious can make something healthy and delicious. The multiple concepts helped us hone in on the core ideas that would be used to build out the branding and collateral design and marketing materials.
After presenting many different concepts and the thought process behind each of them, we came out with a design that would help the team at Protelicious accomplish their goals: a versatile logo that exuded quality and could resonate just as easily with a fitness-focused person as it could a family. We presented multiple product mockups based on variables provided by the client. Soon the problem became a paradox of choice. As a result, we solicited feedback and honed in the design - focusing on the features and attributes mentioned and reinforcing their brand qualities.
The team at Protelicious made their decision and once they got their logo they could not wait to see it on marketing collateral, packaging, menus, and more. We got to work on the items they outlined as most urgent and created a suite of business cards for their staff that they could proudly connect with. We also presented a wide variety of packaging concepts that focused on qualities they wanted to highlight such as quality and a natural vibe.
After designing all of the different assets, and getting the stamp of approval from the team at Protelicious, we packaged up all of the materials including a requested “editable” stamp version of their logo that they could continually change the slogan with and instructions on how to do so.
