Mumbai headquartered Bizongo has unveiled a new brand image for FMCG major Sesa’s haircare range and hand rub. The company is digital supply chain system for auto-replenishment of packaging, which also designs and develops packaging solutions for clients across various categories like eCommerce, FMCG, and consumer durables.

According to Bizongo, the reimagined branding is futuristic while playing to Sesa’s core strength of manufacturing modern products based on centuries-old Ayurveda. The new premium packaging widens Sesa’s reach in the affordable luxury category and extends the brand life without needing a revamp anytime soon.

Commenting on the new brand identity, Sachin Agrawal, co-founder and chief operating officer of Bizongo, said, “I am delighted with the new brand identity that Bizongo’s in-house design team created for Sesa. It fulfils the challenge of retaining aspects that made it such a popular product while including changes in the logo and packaging design to make it more aspirational. The new design is more sophisticated and contemporary to target younger consumers and serve the product well even in export markets without losing its unique personality.”

Meanwhile, green was introduced as an essential color to cue in the natural aspect of the product. The icons were redesigned with a similar visual style. The blend of organic and ornamental elements conveys Sesa’s roots in natural ingredients and age-old Indian tradition. The design styling communicates credibility and confidence, while the colors bring natural cues, trustworthiness, and approachability to the brand, Bizongo explained.

“Sesa is a heritage brand that enjoys strong recall and loyalty in the ayurvedic anti-hair fall segment. As we expand our portfolio and enter into newer segments, reimagining Sesa was key to appeal to a wider set of audience. Bizongo has played a pivotal role here with their work on Sesa’s brand identity and packaging solutions.”, said Ashish Bhargava, chief executive officer of Sesa Care.

Bizongo conceptualized and designed the Strong Roots Ayurvedic Hair Oil sub-brand identity and packaging for a premium experience. It is an ayurvedic mixture of 26 natural herbs and six essential oils. According to the company, it was designed to appeal to middle and upper-middle-class consumers to widen its reach.

The traditions of Ayurveda and the goodness of natural ingredients were to be highlighted through graphics. The color palette with pastel green and brown gives the brand an elevated feel in the category. Green symbolizes natural aspects, whereas brown connects to the earth. Key propositions of the ‘Banyan tree extracts’ were highlighted through blown-up print enhancements over the label. The imagery of the ingredients was composed over a jute mat to give an ayurvedic look and feel.

Sesa was looking to add a new product under the Strong Roots portfolio. Similar to the Sesa+ Strong Roots oil, the shampoo is made from 26 natural herbs. Bizongo explained that the intent was to highlight the natural aspect of the shampoo, hence the colors green and brown were used for the bottle. The imagery showcases the key ingredients of the shampoo with drops of water to bring in freshness. The transparent label with gold foiling adds a premium feel to the product. The USP of the product was highlighted through icons, and print finishes on the front of the pack.

xzThe focus was on creating a balance for the design to be modern yet traditional, clean yet detailed, and to work wonders in both mass and premium markets, Bizongo said. The result was a pack, optimizing the use of existing design elements and introducing new icons for the product claims such as 100% natural. The print enhancements were explored in a way to highlight primary information and callouts while retaining the identity and ‘Sesa Lady’ on the label.

The company said that the overall visual was designed keeping in mind the category, the target audience, and easy communication of the product attributes. The project was a quick turnaround of 48 hours and focused on keeping the design clean and minimal while communicating the product usage and result instantly. The color palette chosen was following the color of the product and the colors that dominate the hand-care and sanitizer category.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
