The gum industry has a very dirty secret – the vast majority of gum actually contains petrochemicals. Read any gum label today and you’ll see an ingredient called ‘gum base‘, which often contains the same chemicals used to make plastic bottles and car tires.
Real Good wanted to appeal directly to kids, who generally don’t care about ingredients, and to concerned parents looking for cleaner options. The Butler Bros. worked with them to design identity, packaging and messaging that combines a vibrant color palette, playful copy, and a set of whimsical rainforest inspired illustrations to give Real Good a way to appeal to both audiences. The Butler Bros. used ‘always gunk free’ as an informative but low-key way to start the conversation about the garbage found in other gum.
