CLIENT

A Cana­dian organic and nat­ural food com­pany that spe­cial­izes in high qual­ity beef, chicken, and fish. In 2013, it intro­duced itself to con­sumers through a new mis­sion and prod­uct mix.


BRIEF

In antic­i­pa­tion of its national roll­out Blue Goose sought to over­haul the brand to improve its low aware­ness. Cana­di­ans, how­ever, are skep­ti­cal of brands in this cat­e­gory as mar­keters fre­quently use mis­lead­ing imagery and buzz­words in their com­mu­ni­ca­tions. Blue Goose had noth­ing to hide. Our chal­lenge then was to define an evoca­tive brand pur­pose that would trans­late into a com­pelling visual iden­tity; one that would leap off the shelf, spark con­sumer inter­est, and build trust in the brand.


APPROACH

Blue Goose under­stands that con­sumers care most about the per­sonal health ben­e­fits of organic and nat­ural foods, so we made this truth vis­i­bly unde­ni­able. Our approach was designed to break con­ven­tions, con­nect­ing prod­uct prop­er­ties with tan­gi­ble health ben­e­fits in a sim­ple and visual way. Armed with the knowl­edge that Blue Goose is all about ver­ti­cal inte­gra­tion and com­plete trans­parency all we did is get out of the way and let the ani­mals do the talk­ing. We used crafted por­traits as can­vases to reflect the ani­mals’ nat­ural envi­ron­ment and grow­ing conditions—creating a true visual rep­re­sen­ta­tion of the Blue Goose story.

The Blue Goose rebrand project has been an absolute suc­cess and has pro­vided our com­pany with the tools we needed dur­ing a crit­i­cal period of national expan­sion. Our objec­tive at the out­set was to build a brand plat­form that could encom­pass our three pro­teins of beef, chicken, and fish, and cre­ate an accom­pa­ny­ing visual iden­tity that could allow us to clearly stand-out in the mar­ket­place, strike a rel­e­vant chord with con­sumers, and be true to our iden­tity. The work from Sid Lee accom­plished all the above, and has posi­tioned us to build a strong com­pany mov­ing for­ward. — Jonathan Bon­nell, Direc­tor Brand and Inte­grated Mar­ket­ing at Blue Goose
