Shaking up the salt category
What we did:
- Creative Strategy
- Visual Identity
Turn around the downturn and stand up against own label to put us pride of place on the nation’s table.
To many, salt is just salt. Consumers would need a good reason to trade up from own label for what was seen as a standard staple.
Celebrate salt – elevate Saxa from a humble commodity to the magic ingredient.
We simplified and refined Saxa’s brand mark and holding device, introducing a contemporary sans serif font for the variant name and descriptor – and included the ‘Est. 1907’ claim to reinforce the brand’s heritage.
from 17% decline to 3% year-on-year growth
We created abstract, expressive patterns to distinguish one salt from another, and celebrate the flair Saxa brings to cooking. The wave-like swirls are inspired by the movement of the sea while coarse blocks mimic the texture of natural rocks.
“Saxa would be seen everywhere, but it wasn’t just about looking good. The design had to have a bold brand imprint on shelf whilst allowing enough flex to clearly differentiate each product.”
