Waitrose Introduces Redesign of Pure

1.Pure Group RGB Low resThe UK retailer Waitrose has introduced a redesign of its beauty focused Private Brand “Waitrose Pure.” The new brand identity was created by UK based design consultancy DewGibbons + Partners.

The Waitrose Pure skincare range has been in-store for a number of years – it required redevelopment for better standout on shelf. Plus there was a need to more clearly position the nine-strong range as ‘natural skincare’, due to a reappraisal and reformulation of all products, which are now suitable for all skin types, dermatologically approved, and contain 95%+ naturally derived ingredients.

To ensure Pure is displayed with pride on shelf and in bathrooms, the design solution acknowledges contemporary trends in interior design. The team collaborated with renowned fabric and wallpaper designer Sabine Reinhart to create a flora inspired background pattern that subtly decorates each of the packs. The logotype and typography are a simple and purposely understated foil to the richness of the illustration. A seal endorsing the products’ purity underpins the brand’s natural claims. New packaging structures provide a unified feel for the brand.

The brand relaunches in store this month, and an associated hair care range will launch later in the year.2.Pure lineup RGB low res
