Jaali Bean Brand Development by Steve Todesco

Home > Winners > #26678


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Jaali Bean

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Brand Development

INSPIRATION:
The initial idea for developing an accessible Indian retail offering was inspired by two individuals with worldly roots, a pulse on food trends, and ties to food service as well as an Indian heritage. Reflecting on the difference that this product could bring to the market, the team created a brand strategy to be used as a brand lens and filter to guide brand, product, and package development. The driving brand essence behind all is “Accessible India,” and it is supported by attributes that represent India. This brand essence is a perfect fit to drive brand communications that speak to the core target; mostly women as well as men over the age of 25 that are adventurous, informed, responsible and healthy.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The Jaali Bean brand name was inspired by the transformative idea behind the Hindi word jaali. Taking something hard like preparing a homemade Indian meal and transforming it into something beautiful and flavorful. We utilized a contemporary color palette. The photography suggests fresh and homemade. The rich textured background and sophisticated details create a distinct package design. Accessible India also drove structure choices; spoonable and enough in one jar for multiple servings.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
-

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in February of 2011 with a big idea in Chicago, IL. The engagement is ongoing, with the Indian Dal product launching first at the November 2011 PLMA show in Chicago. The Lentil Kits debuted at the March 2012 Expo West in California. In August of 2012, the Lentil Kits hit shelves in 15 states at places like Fresh Market, Potash Markets, and Wooden Spoon.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Graphics and Visual Communication Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Kaleidoscope's in-house production group is vertically integrated enabling different teams to work concurrently on multiple facets of a single project. Throughout the package design and identity project, we were able to rapid ideate, rapid design, and rapid prototype, so that our client, Jaali Bean could see iterations of the design quickly, as we were discussing them.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Indian cuisine has had a place in British culture for decades, and now there is growing interest and awareness of Indian culture among the US mass market. Indian food has the highest projected growth among all ethnic segments. Additionally, close to 40% of the US population is seeking meat-free options one or more times a week. These flexitarians are a growing consumer group and vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free diets are also growing in the US.

CHALLENGE:
Creatively, one of the toughest challenges was coming up with product names, for each individual line of Jaali Bean products. We wanted the flavor profile to come across in the language and imagery used in the design. We tasted the product and wrote down descriptive words around what we were tasting to help come up with the product names.
