Identified Problems:

  1. Alignment with Sri Lankan Heritage: The existing logo did not resonate with the rich heritage of Sri Lanka, a key aspect the client sought to incorporate.

  2. Compatibility with Printing Methods: The current logo lacked versatility, struggling to adapt to various printing techniques.

  3. Competing in a Saturated Market: With a fiercely competitive market, Forthright Teas faced the challenge of standing out and establishing their unique brand identity.

  4. Lacking a Distinctive Value-Added Brand: To distinguish themselves, Forthright Teas needed to transcend beyond being a manufacturer, focusing on value-added products.

  5. Embracing Sustainable Packaging: In line with global sustainability trends, there was a need for packaging that was eco-friendly and sustainable.

  6. Balancing Premium Quality and Budget-Friendliness: The product packaging needed to exude premium quality while remaining cost-effective.

  2. Versatile Logo for All Printing Methods: The redesigned logo was engineered for adaptability across a range of printing techniques.

  3. Innovative Packaging Design: We introduced a distinctive packaging type with a unique design, ensuring Forthright Teas stands out on the shelves.

  4. Elevated Sensory Experience: Incorporating gold foiling and a matte finish, we heightened the tactile experience, adding a sense of luxury to the product.

  5. Sustainable and Budget-Friendly Paper Board: We opted for eco-friendly paper board, marrying sustainability with budget-conscious packaging solutions.

  6. Achievements: The transformation of Forthright Teas includes a logo that now resonates with Sri Lankan heritage and packaging that harmoniously blends premium quality with sustainability. In a competitive market, Forthright Teas is poised to stand out and continue its journey as a brand synonymous with integrity, trust, and uncompromising quality.
