With stars in their eyes and major growth on the horizon, FLOR was in need of a comprehensive rebrand—new logo, new messaging, a top-to-bottom overhaul of their identity system and a refreshed strategy for 20+ retail stores nationwide.

As longtime fans of the custom rug company, Firebelly were up for the challenge. And with FLOR eager to find a true collaborator for the project—a team that wouldn’t dictate, but arrive at solutions together, it was a match made in design heaven.

Together, Firebelly set out to refine FLOR’s story, sell the design experience and convert browsers to brand loyalists. After a thorough language audit and intensive store research,Firebelly found plenty of room to strengthen the brand and consumer experience. Firebelly began by crafting a short, memorable tagline—Creative Rug Design—and a lively logo to convey FLOR’s sense of freedom, play and flexibility.

Ariel Di Lisio and his team were commissioned to develop an identity system for a Japanese brand of tea. Ariel Di Lisio‘s creative process began by researching the ancient Asian tea culture; they found the oldest Japanese specialty tea book from, Kissa Yōjōki (喫茶 養生 記) ” be healthy through tea” written in 1211. The ideas inspired by the book contents became the guiding concept behind the identity system; first of all they came up with name Yojoki.

The brand always appears surrounded by white, within a context filled with handmade textures, shapes, floral elements and kanji script -one of the first writing systems. The concept of luxury is inherent to the product, the team integrate it through a Didona typeface developed for the brand, which comes alive through subtle printed finishes and high-quality materials. All the elements of the brand are interconnected through the packaging and its different presentations, as well as complementary elements such as wrapping paper, stickers, postcards and fact sheets which communicate the different types tea blends.

It also divides the brochure in two parts: the first – institutional – and the second – products. To finish, the two pantone metallic colors and the omega staples reinforce the premium positioning.

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.
