BUILDING A BRAND WITH BINDING FORCE


BRAND AND PACKAGING REDESIGN FOR IRONFORCE 

Berry Plastics, a big player in the tape and adhesive industry, challenged our team to brand their new heavy-duty, all-purpose duct tape and adhesive spray. Our brand and identity work would need to showcase the products’ durability and help them stand out on the overly saturated shelves.

After exploring hundreds of brand names, we opted for IRONFORCE — a name that shouts strength and stability, while conveying tradition and legacy. Next, we went to work on an equally powerful logo. Visual concepts like tools, skulls and crossbones, mac trucks and men flipping tires all led up to the industrial-inspired logo that screams “built tough.” All things considered, the idea of an iron support beam represented what IRONFORCE promised: strength and durability.

With name and logo nailed down, we dove into package design. Our first concept embodied the image of a classic toolbox – heavy on the color red with a stainless steel look. We also presented the client with a black-and-yellow design, one that mimicked traditional contractor-grade tools. The final and chosen concept transmitted feelings of Porsche-like sleekness and prestige, coupled with hints of neon.

For the final part of the project, we designed IRONFORCE’s website to drive sales. Visitors were greeted by a promo video – which we wrote, shot, and directed. The video quickly educated consumers on the products, enticing them to head to The Home Depot. The site’s electric green icons pulled the visitor’s gaze to benefit call-outs, while a dark, industrial background cemented the brand as super-tough.
