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.

Industry / Location

Consumer Electronics Manufacturer / Tokyo, Japan

Scope of Work

Visual identity / Packaging design / POS and tradeshow items / Web design & development

Toshiba, a world-leader in innovation, has entrusted Necon with designing packaging and point-of-sale display for a new line of batteries recently introduced to the European markets.

The Concept

The designed line of packaging conveys a modern feel, reflecting the energetic nature of the product within.

The Execution

Strong vibrant colors and geometric patterns became the core visual idea and made the packaging stand out from the competition on store shelves.

The Execution

Application to countless formats and media required an almost mass-creation of designs, 3D images and photography.

We we’re looking for a creative agency that would understand the scale and impact this task carried and could take full ownership of the design process. It is my pleasure to say that Necon has shown the maturity we were looking for in both the communication and design process, and the deliverd result. Their creative input and brand building knowledge exceed all our expectations and resulted in a design Toshiba is proud to incorporate in their new line of battery products.

Andrzej Ambryszewski – president of the board, Toshiba Europe
The Introduction

Toshiba’s batteries were a new product and required a wholesome introduction to the market. Apart from the packaging, Necon was responsible for creating an entire range of POS materials, tradeshow items as well as print and digital ads.

 

Bringing the product closer to both consumers and retailers.
