„bathe your family in love“

 
In February 2022 Schwarzkopf launched the new design for its global brand Schauma which has an important history and expertise in providing hair care for the entire family. The new slogan „bathe your family in love“ symbolizes the transformation of the brand from a reserved brand to the new „Family, Love & Care“ brand.

Every child loves playing outside in the mud and exploring on little adventures. Once they come home, a lovely bath is waiting for them to spoil and clean their little bodies and enjoy quality time with their family. That’s what the global hair care brand Schauma is associated with for more than 80 years. We don’t have to point out how important relaunches are for brands with such a long-standing identity. Therefore in 2022 Schauma – a subsidiary of the umbrella brand Schwarzkopf – had its amazing second transformation for which baries design created a packaging design in collaboration with Bodo Warden (structural packaging design) to support the brand’s complete relaunch.

 

Our work

From a strategic point of view, we had to ask ourselves at the beginning of the project how far we could go with a fresh and new brand identity in order to retain all existing loyal customers, while at the same time attract new ones. Thus, when designing the product, it was of utmost importance to create a unified yet strong Schauma look that would speak to people in the same way.

Apart from triggering the emotionality and authenticity of the brand, it was very important to simplify Schauma’s large portfolio for it to appear as one brand. The aim was a fusion of the Baseline with all subcategories like Teens, Nature Moments & Men to evoke a harmonious overall feel. With more than 60 products, creating a different packaging design in terms of individual bottle and cap colors for each and every one of them is economically as well as environmentally just not sustainable. We’ve consulted the brand’s team to simplify the color scheme of the wide product range and made the brand even more environmentally friendly. As the aspect of naturality and sustainability is of major importance regarding the large portfolio and development process, the new Schauma bottle is made of 100% recycled material.

A simplified color scheme for the whole Schauma portfolio

 
From an aesthetic point of view, it was necessary to create a consistent color scheme to calm the entire portfolio. Thus, the color of the bottle now matches the color of the cap. And yet, with over 60 SKUs, the large portfolio appears like a colorful rainbow that caters for everyone’s taste. Moreover, for a long time the design of the brand’s hair care products has featured a model on the bottels’ front label. From 2022, this design will be discontinued.

Instead, we created a calmer design to simplify its diversity. Together with the monochrome color approach this results in a harmonization of the overall design impression. As vegan formulas with natural ingredients are used, we decided to emphasize those ingredients and put a lot of effort into creating unique ingredient visualization. In order to stand out from the competition and stage a strong on-shelf presence, we wanted to achieve a natural & premium look and feel. The design of the ingredient is arranged in a circular way, alluding to Schauma’s legacy and its previous design relaunch.

As „Schaum“ means „foam“ in Englisch, the brand’s name „Schauma“ implies that foam is of particular importance to the brand. Since the brand’s early days foam has always been used as a marketing cue in all communication like TVCs, packaging design, advertisement, print material, logo etc. More recently, however, the Schauma brand has lost its foam connection in communication and design. In order to bring back this historical cue, we intended to give the design an impression of lightness and smoothness. The foam is now part of the new impactful & caring Schauma logo. Due to its simple and clean typography the logo no longer has to assert itself against the complexity of the label design. In addition, the white foamy outline gives the logo a standing on its own – the modernized blue color tone refers to the brand’s legacy and strengthens the customers‘ trust in the brand. The simple & minimalist typography completes the design and ensures a coherent overall look & feel.
 

 
As a team, we’ve been very excited to support the brand’s relaunch twice in a row with our expertise and knowhow of innovative packaging design.

It’s been an absolute pleasure and we cannot wait for the awesome designs to hit the shelves!

In 2021 Schwarzkopf relaunched the new Extra Care range for China, developed with baries design.
 

scientific performance meets natural beauty

 
 
With over 70 years of expert hair experience, Extra Care stands for targeted formulas for all hair types that repair the hair strand from inside and outside to ensure healthy and resistant hair. Customers are offered smart hair solutions thanks to the latest technologies that combine the best of science and nature for healthy, resilient hair and an outstanding performance.
 

Our work

When designing the Extra Care series, we had to consider that hair care experts are driven by Schwarzkopf’s salon image, which means that the product should be perceived as professional, high-quality and innovative. Therefore, when designing the Extra Care range it was important to visually reinterpret the significant circular icon. Instead of a closed circle, we opted for an open circle that conveys a sense of lightness and movement. Thus, the respective natural ingredient is surrounded by swooshing water, oil or cream. In combination with the small graphical icon of the ‘Bio restore complex’, the overall impression is innovative and of high quality. The icon itself should reflect the combination of technology and natural ingredients and symbiotically form a unity.
 
Furthermore, when designing the 3D shape of the bottle we tried to take the characteristic wavy shoulder of the old bottle into consideration and reinterpreted it in a more feminine and delicate way. The bottle is slimmer and gives an impression of elegance and high quality. Additionally, the bottle caps were replaced by pump dispensers which stress the selective approach. Together with the icon, the overall appearance is harmonious.

“A summer day outside” – for a beautiful summer at home

 
 
It’s finally summer! Due to the pandemic, travelling around the world is still easier said than done for most people. But luckily you don’t have to travel far to feel the sun and summer breeze on your face. Flower fields, bike rides and lovely patterned summer dresses are just a few of the things that turn a summer at home into fun.

If we think about summer at baries design, the Summer Repair line by Gliss Kur is one of the first things that pop up in our mind as in recent years we were consulted to design its limited packaging edition.
This year, we give the consumers a summer feeling without showing exotic beaches or sceneries. „A summer day outside“ is the theme of the Summer Repair design 2021.

But this is not the only reason why this year’s summer edition is special: for the first time we will design our summer edition straight onto our brand-new bottle shapes which we developed during the Gliss Kur relaunch last year!
 

 

Our work

The Gliss Kur summer repair edition is a product the consumers are looking forward to every summer. They love spending time outside in the sun. However, sun exposure, salt water and chlorine can cause damage leading to faded colour and dry hair. Consumers want to enjoy the summer without worrying about possible hair damage and thus appreciate beauty products with an emotional design they can relate to.

Therefore, the new summer repair design has a strong colour coding and design elements that evoke an enjoyable summer feeling. Especially the big pink flower in the centre of the design alludes to the floral scent of the formula. It sits on top of a light blue background that symbolizes the fresh blue of the summer sky. The blue colour complements the yellow bottle that stands for the warmth of the sun. Additionally, the design is topped off by a colourful and playful pattern. All in all, the composition reflects the warm feeling of a beautiful summer day outside.

In 2021, Schwarzkopf launched a new innovative treatment solution developed together with baries design. The Gliss Kur 7 sec Express Repair treatment does not only repair hair in the glimpse of an eye but also immediately stands out on the shelf due to its strong colour effect providing a unique look. All these features are reflected in the packaging design.
 

New treatment design, combining label and bottle in a symbiosis of transparency, contrast & colour

 
 
With increasingly demanding lifestyles, the need for faster solutions and quick results is constantly growing. Inspired by Korean skincare traditions, the new in-shower transformative hair masks offer the benefits of a traditional mask in just 7 seconds, delivering intense repair for exceptional hair quality. These water-active masks contain a high concentration of powerful ingredients, achieving maximum results in minimum time.
 

Our work

When designing the product, it was very important to showcase the innovative effect of the mask which delivers the ultimate result in just 7 seconds. Therefore, we highlighted the 7 seconds with the help of concise typography. In addition, number and text are cut out so that more of the liquid mask inside the bottle is visible. At the same time the coloured liquid matches the respective signature ingredient such as black pearl serum, cranberry extract & marula oil. Together with the black label and the gold finish contours, the overall design impression is reduced, yet sophisticated and premium.

Seasonal limited editions by Schwarzkopf Gliss Kur allow us creative freedom. Therefore, we had a lot of fun creating the limited edition design for Gliss Kur Winter Repair 2020.

Elegant and modern design for winter-stressed hair

The challenge

Contrary to the baseline range, the design should be more disruptive while reflecting the products winterly benefits. Furthermore, we should consider a few other aspects:

  • Keep the logo as it is
  • Use the new relaunch bottle design
  • Create an emotional story around the winter theme
Our work

Like in the years before, we were so excited to create the design for this seasonal range. By breaking up the usual brand structure, the Winter Repair edition differentiates more and more from the baseline. Luckily, this development gives us a lot of leeway to build the design.
 

Gliss Kur Winter Repair Limited Edition Design History

Gliss Kur Winter Repair 2020 Limited Edition Design

 
We used the new Gliss Kur bottle designed by baries design as the basis for the design. Thanks to the flowing shape, there is a bigger label and therefore more space for layout. Furthermore, to create a winterly atmosphere, we chose white as basic color. This clean basis also stands for the caring character. The abstract blue watercolor visual suggests an icy surface and transports the winterly coldness. In addition, golden lettering and snowflakes complete the design and create a luxurious look.
Moreover, the strong caring formula is explained by the powerful dark blue tones as well as through the product name lettering. While the word “Repair” states the technological part through a sans serif font, the handwritten word “Winter” communicates the caring aspect.
All these style elements create a look & feel that brings the emotional winterly atmosphere to the bathroom and still conveys the years of expertise that Gliss Kur stands for.
