Blue Marlin makes a dirty job simply adorable
Fashionable, functionable and green! Integrated brand design agency, Blue Marlin gives Portlandbased brand gDiapers a makeover that reflects their eco-friendly brand essence. The international rollout hits shelves this month and will be seen in USA, Canada and Europe. The gDiapers brand is quickly growing as it prepares to enter major retailers in new markets both instore and online across the globe. In order to speak to the rising target market of Generation Y moms and ensure clear navigation at shelf, gDiapers asked Blue Marlin New York to give its packaging portfolio a fresh new look that clearly communicates the brand’s message, “cute bum & small footprint.”
Visually engaging and green-focused, gDiapers’ new packaging is simply “ecodorable”- cute and biodegradable*. The “g” stands out as a focal point communicating the values of gDiapers – gorgeous, green, and genuine. An innovative peek-a-boo window brings consumers closer to the product, showcasing its unique material and aesthetic. Blue Marlin New York Creative Director, Anna Milivojevich comments – “Our goal was to shift the diaper experience from a burden to an inspiration. We wanted to attract and delight new parents with the design as well as bring out the brand’s message – “Happy Baby. Happy Planet.” Jolynn Mitchell of gDiapers adds – “At our roots, gDiapers is about the Australian ‘fair dinkum’ philosophy – an expression that means being genuine and real with everyone you encounter. Blue Marlin understood this and worked with gDiaper’s in house designer, Shelley Stout and her creative team to take the packaging to another level that can be communicated in a larger, culturally diverse market.
