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