Relevant quote
The centrepiece of the visual identity is a ‘stretchable’ logotype that can expand into a flexible pattern – a simple, scalable system, designed to be as adaptable as our brains.

Beyond the logo, the visual system is calm and premium, in direct contrast with the rest of the category’s high-energy quick fixes. The colour palette borrows credibility from the healthcare category with blue and green hues, but the tonal variations are designed to evoke a lifestyle feel. And imagery, created in collaboration with photographer Kuba Wieczorek, combines a refined, high-end aesthetic with compositions that play on the idea of taking your brain to new heights.

Opinion

Despite my existential distaste for unicase I really like this new logo, in part because of my existential pleasure for extra condensed type but also because the counterspaces between the rounded-corner letters look like the ridges and grooves of the brain. It’s a literally and metaphorically tight-looking wordmark. The effect that the logo can stretch is a clever and appropriate concept — tying in with the idea of expanding the brain — and I like how it’s limited to animation instead of deploying different heights of the Heights logo in each application. The packaging is pretty nice with its blind emboss and accent label in a mint-color that also appears through the rest of the identity, contrasting really well with both white and dark blue. Not a lot in application and perhaps not a lot needed as the brand photography is simple and effective as is the messaging so there is no need to overcomplicate things. Overall, I’d take that pill based on presentation alone.
