In 2022 Schwarzkopf released the new Syoss China styling relaunch, developed with baries design.
The range is empowered by Japanese ingredients & craftmanship. Efficient, yet caring – tough on hold and gentle on the hair. Qualities that are reflected in the design.
Syoss is a hair styling range with formulas developed and used by professional hairdressers and hairstylists. The Syoss formulas are especially designed to meet the specific needs of each hairstyle. With the new MicroSculpt particles (fine micro-polymers) it is possible to achieve long-lasting hold while creating an invisible and effortless finished look. This new lightweight formula contains Japanese ingredients and conditioning agents for better care and nourishment of the hair.
When designing the hair styling range, it was important to retain the benefits of the previous design language which featured eye-catching colours as well as consistent, clear product information. In addition, the colours helped the customer to distinguish more easily between the different product lines. The objective was to redesign the packaging in order to incorporate the new “Syoss care concept” inspired by J-Beauty. In response to the demand for non-harmful styling ingredients, the brand’s mission was to create a design language that reflects these new values. Thus the design should be minimalist, clean, unisex, of high quality and well organized. Moreover, the design should incorporate the styling category look and be eye-catching on shelve.
The colour gradient on the iconic black Syoss container guarantees strong shelf impact. Depending on each selected Japanese ingredient the gradient on the container varies in colour. Additionally, the design includes an innovative and artistic icon, picturing the hold level. This eye-catching detail also embodies the professional aspect of the design. The design shows fashionable Salon-expertise representing an urban and modern style.
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!
In 2021 Schwarzkopf relaunched the new Extra Care range for China, developed with baries design.
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.
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.
The got2b Happy Hour hairspray is the hero among got2b hairsprays by Schwarzkopf. For that reason, it is celebrated with a limited packaging design edition that makes night owls want to style their hair right away!
Like the brand itself, the limited hairspray line speaks to its audience with a characteristically casual & strong voice. Thus, the designs feature styling statements like „Let your hair do the talking“ or „Make each hair flip fabulous“. This resonates with the tone of the brand’s young & funky audience who celebrates happy hours and a „24 hour hold“ styling loud & lively.
The bold statements of our design clearly deserve a bold and characteristic typography. Reinforced by funky illustrations, they match the tone of the statements. Undoubtedly this hairspray is for nightlife queens who want to shine like diamonds and seek a wow-factor styling!
For them not to miss this limited edition of Happy Hour hairspray in shelf, the blue and lilac colour tone of the initial product is kept. New elements were added between the design frame of the logo and the product information. Moreover, they are printed as a digital label and seamlessly pasted on top of the original design. Therefore the short term design variation is quickly arranged and available in the stores.
We enjoyed creating this clever & fun limited product line with all its shout-outs for many more happy hour stylings!
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!
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.
