In 2018 we undertook a grass-roots strategic re-positioning and complete visual re-brand of Liquiproof – the worlds leading environmentally friendly shoe and clothing protection brand. Formulated using all natural ingredients, advanced technology and without any harmful toxins, Liquiproof allows for people to keep their leather and fabric goods protected in a clean and responsible way. Though the brand had enjoyed some success over the previous number of years after appearing on the UK’s Dragons Den, it was experiencing some issues breaking into new large scale, global retailers. This issue was largely put down to the visual brand lacking appeal and being deemed as too ‘generic’ and ‘pharmaceutical’ in feel.
In order to reach a new desired fashion consumer through more curated retail channels such as ASOS, Selfridges and Harvey Nichols our team undertook strategy and creative programmes to re-define the brand and find a new contemporary impactful expression. As the product was originally developed by a Chemist, our hypothesis and ambition was centred on going back to the authentic scientific origin story and bringing it to life in a more engaging, creative and accessible way through the visual and verbal brand personality.
Firstly we needed a creative brand idea; ‘Live Boldly’ for us meant the ability to go out into the world free from the worry of stains and dirt. The ability to go forth and grab life! Building on that we created a visual language inspired by the world of laboratories and their intersection with fashion and cosmetics. In a significant move we changed the name of the brand from Liquiproof to ‘Liquiproof LABS’. Recognition of the brands heritage in chemistry and a future commitment to building a sustainable future through innovation.
The overall visual personality is punchy and bold. A confident colour palette and novel grid device formed the basis for a high impact and vibrant visual experience. The final result presents Liquiproof in a new contemporary way that ensures its cultural relevance in a fashion inspired market place.
Since launch this year Liquiproof has seen unprecedented results; ASOS has just agreed a new landmark deal with Liquiproof to carry the range, along with Zalando, Office, Offspring and END. These are some of the biggest online fashion retailers in the UK, Europe and the World
In terms of social media, last years downward trend of followers reversed immediately on launch of the new brand with followers increasing and a spike in tags, references and influencer approaches. But of course most significantly, our client has reported that early sales figures since the re-launch, indicate YoY sales growth has jumped to 215% which has exceeded all expectations.
