Brief

The Specialty Oil segment Within the cooking oil category is growing, and market research found the Azalea brand had the potential to further grow the category and its market share through a repositioning and product innovation.

The consumer drivers for speciality oils are health, convenience, naturalness, culinary and exotic. This drove the deoleo team to devElop the new positioning, Azalea - 'Culinary Oils From Nature's Pantry'. WITH The long-term growth plan and ambition for the brand to have a full Azalea range within specialty oils.

The existing Azalea Grapeseed Oil bottle and label had remained unchanged for years, resulting in a lack of modernity and standout on-shelf. with Research learnings identifying Azalea as a conceivable category leader in Grapeseed, A uniformed and contemporary look and feel for the brand would be necessary to GAIN permission to broaden the portfolio to other specialist and gourmet oil offerings. the only grapeseed oil brand in Woolworths, azalea ALSO HAD potential to draw in new grapeseed oil CONSUMERS and encourage THE SWITCH from other cooking oils.

following theIR research, The Deoleo team had undertaken LABEL design exploration with an agency that did not specialise in packaging DESIGN. CONSEQUENTLY, the team approached the engineroom team to develop the two areas they felt had the most potential TO line UP with the new BRAND positioning.

Concept 1 - Culinary Illustration
Concept 2 - CulinarY PHOTOGRAPHIC

our team looked at the culinary illustration direction resolving communication hierarchy issues and developing illustrations to create a high-end, unique and own-able label that showcased craftmanship unparalelled by any oil in the supermarket category.

The photographic solution was evolved to capture a vibrant, healthy natural feel with beautiful photography and composition. our team developed concepts using inspiration from outside the category, in particular beverages, and came up with a design that saw a clear front label and the grape imagery printed on the reverse of the back label. A CONCEPT UNIQUE OR OILS.

Engineroom art directed the photoshoot to capture an abundant beautiful bunch of grapes with the right composition for the design.
