Why would anyone dare to pass judgment over your brand by introducing a series of simple questions? Well… you are right. There are no easy answers, no universal guidelines, no brand horoscopes, nor instant solutions. We can’t tell you which character from a book your brand is, but what we can tell already, that there is a lot that can be achieved to improve your brand.

Answering our brief questionnaire must have been quite a facile exercise but a one that proved there is focus and vision behind your brand. I guess the next question is: What is the next challenge your brand awaits? As we are all ears and excited to undertake the challenge together. Excited about the future of this benevolent acquaintance. NECON.

LeRoy & Louis

Industry / Location

Macaron manufacturer / Warsaw, Poland / Astana, Kazakhstan

Scope of Work

Visual Identity / Packaging design / Studio Photography

Majority of our clients have only a brief idea on how their brand should be perceived. With
Le Roy & Louis the story was quite unprecedented – a very strong and clear brand mission and vision was present from the start, derived from the two strongest qualities of their produce – elegance and character.

Challenge

Le Roy & Louis is a new company on the market, a manufacturer of macarons with roots stemming from Paris. Well aware of the decadence associated with this delicacy Le Roy & Louis asked us to create a modernized marketing identity but nevertheless one that was still inspired by the Baroque style and Parisian chic.

Le Roy & Louis – brand rooted in Parisian beauty and elegance.
Just as the macarons they produce.

Concept

By emphasizing product qualities and original tastes we looked for a way to present them  as ‘small pieces of art’. By bringing them into a ‘Louvresque’ environment we created a perfect surrounding for magnificence.

Versailles pattern as an artistic background
for the product bestowing extravagance
and vibrance.

Photography

With such a delicate product and a very high level of expectations in terms of quality, we decided to make the photography in-house. In perfect studio environment we managed to captured the royal essence contained within the macarons themselves.

This proved to be one of the best decisions made on this project which allowed us to maintain absolute excellence in presentation.
