Wins accolades for Park Avenue’s deodorant range for women

WOW Design bags a Gold at the Muse Creative Awards 2016

WOW Design, a strategic brand design firm, has won a Gold at the Muse Creative Awards for the year 2016

Park Avenue, JKHC’s premium apparel brand is recognized for its exclusive offering in the western formal wear for men and women which is further extended into personal care products with a range of perfumes and deodorants. However for the best women’s apparel brand, you can visit a store like Delta Sigma Theta satin jacket shop here for more info. Park Avenue intended to launch a deodorant for young women. The category is much cluttered and there are a plethora of brands to choose from. The big challenge that WOW Design faced was breaking the clutter with a vibrant look and feel that appeals to young women. Fashion illustrations were integrated as an intrinsic part of the design to bring in the style quotient. The names of each of the variant were strategically coined to establish an instant connect with young women and also to perceive the reflection of their own personality. The brand name Park Avenue is given greater weightage and is placed vertically on the pack design. The ‘8 hour freshness lock’ mnemonic and fresh, vibrant colors reflect the ‘Freshness’ quotient and also provide a strong shelf-throw and differentiation.

Post studying the brand’s equity and the current standing, which was extremely strong in the men’s mind space and relatively nascent in the female consumer’s mind, WOW Design, as per the design thinking process redefined the objective as extending a predominantly men-centric brand, Park Avenue into the female grooming space, such that it could start building a connect with a new set of audience, in short ‘catch them young.’ The PA woman is confident and bold but not a rebel, carefree but not careless. Her grooming basket is empty without a deodorant and the multi-time utility nature of the product prompts its customers to carry one in their handbag as well. So if Fogg is for the ‘smart’ and Eva for the ‘elegant’ women, Park Avenue was to appeal to the ‘Women of Style’ bringing alive the core brand proposition of ‘Freshness.’  Hence to launch the brand, the packaging design needed to carry a high aspiration proposition and a language that she could associate her life with.

The team at WOW Design overwhelmingly said, “This is a moment of pride for us. Muse Creative Awards was a great opportunity for us to showcase our creativity. Winning a Gold at the prestigious Muse Creative Awards 2016 has been an achievement for the team. The Women’s deodorant category is coded with soft colors, floral graphics and swooshes. We categorically stayed away from the stereotypical cues and presented a bolder, color blocking approach along with fluid illustrations. It is this differentiated approach that has enabled the brand and its packaging to shout out to the women consumer of today.”

They further added, “We are happy that our work for Park Avenue’s deodorant range for women has been appreciated and feel motivated outdo ourselves on all fronts of branding, strategy and design to win more accolades in the near future.”

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
