At baries, we have observed in recent years that diversity is becoming more and more relevant. The movement moved out of the niche and gained the awareness of the masses. That’s why we started conceptual brainstorming already last year and developed our own diverse product concept. Today, diversity is extremely important. We take pride month 2021 as an occasion to share our PRIDE LIPS for celebrating tolerance and diversity in society.
Kissing and hugging are important and of special significance to all of us, especially in times of social distancing. That’s why we wanted to celebrate „kissing“ with special KISS KITS that encourage people to interact, have fun and connect with each other.
When designing the PRIDE LIPS kiss kits, the idea was to express diversity and joy through the packaging design. For each colour of the iconic PRIDE FLAG we created its own lip gloss and lip liner.
The packaging design features different lip expressions that convey a special, exaggerated expression and provoke in a humorous way. The witty and provocative names of each packaging invite the user to have fun and embrace unexpected happenings.
To make the colours stand out, we decided to use a white packaging box. This way, the depicted colours resemble a colour chart. For the lips illustrations, we chose a poppy style that reminds of comic art. In combination with the logo – a speech bubble that playfully links to the illustration – this creates a harmonious packaging design.
Obviously, the colours of our kiss kits are based on the rainbow of the iconic LGBT flag. However, they are no stranger to the beauty & make up world.
Thanks to the open and tolerant web culture, all colours and looks are accepted and celebrated. It is IN to express one’s individuality and mood. For this reason, each PRIDE LIPS variety has its own character expressed through its unique colour, illustration & playful title. Therefore the brand encourages the consumer to try out and embrace various looks.
be brave, be bold, be free, be pride!
Our PRIDE LIPS brand is loud and proud. In fact, our kiss kits are designed for those who are not afraid to attract attention but are proud of their individual beauty. Not just for the LGBTQ+ community, but for everyone who makes their own beauty statement.
To highlight the brands‘ extroverted character, the logo is designed as a speech bubble. The individual product names that are positioned below the speech bubble thus become ambassadors for the brand name.
As the black logo stands in striking contrast to the packaging design and monochrome approach, the design gets an avant-garde and arty feel.
In addition, the logo immediately catches the eye and strengthens the brand. It also offers a great canvas for the typology. In order to integrate the rainbow effect of the LGBTQ+ flags in every single product, the typo in the logo is coloured with a gentle rainbow gradient. In contrast, the font is straightforward reinforcing the brand’s strong character.
