School-safe snack options are limited and moms are torn between feeding their children snacks that kids will eat and snacks that are nutritious and safe to bring to school.
For decades Bear Paws has been one of Quebec’s favourite cookies among elementary school children. Its nutritional value and peanut free designation made it an easy choice for moms to put into lunch bags.
What We Did
Bear Paws’ success
in the past ten years has resulted in a steady expansion of the core line and eventually led to the introduction of the brand into new categories.
Our challenge was to maintain the brand voice
and key visual equities of the brand across the line while establishing a clear differentiation among the sub-brands through colour coding and nomenclature. We kept the sub-brand nomenclature descriptive, so as not to compete with the master brand and to avoid any confusion among shoppers in finding the right product.
At the segment level, flavour and format are the key elements guiding the shopper’s decision tree
We utilized a system of colour coding to identify segments and differentiate flavours.
This improved find-ability especially on repeat purchases where shoppers are greatly reliant on colour for variant identification.
