Cotopaxi Questival Branding

Posted by

Questival is a Cotopaxi event that inspires hundreds of people to come together in teams and compete in fitness, camping, service, and teamwork challenges. 24 hours, 2-6 friends, 300 plus challenges, taking place in 35 cities. The adventure race is kid friendly and just the perfect excuse to explore cities while improving the community.

Hint partnered with Nate Morely and Cotopaxi to rebrand Questival. The new logotype was custom drawn, unique to Questival’s authentic experience. The color palette is comprised of friendly colors that support the brand’s core mission of community and adventure. The patterns communicate the connectivity and movement created by the event. The new identity was extended to Questival’s website, app, event signage, and other collateral.

Epicure Branding

Epicure is dedicated to providing delicious meal solutions that use only real, whole ingredients you can trust, while never compromising on taste. They approached Hint to refresh their brand image aligning it with those ideals. Epicure’s new brand appeals to families whose busy lifestyles interfere with the creation of healthy meals by providing time conscious recipes with healthy products.

Hint developed Epicure’s new brand system: identity, photography, website design, and packaging; from the smallest spices with the simplest labels to the largest cookware and the most complex kits. The packaging system encompasses 250 products across 25 product categories. Upon successful implementation these new systems resulted in costs savings and increased consumer enthusiasm.

Fender Bassbreaker

Hint partnered with Fender, Nate Morley Consulting, Dynamic Dynosaur and Dominic Cooley (Photography) to help create and produce the Fender Bassbreaker campaign. The campaign featured artists: Dave Navarro-Jane’s Addiction, Matt Skiba and Mark Hoppus-Blink 182, Dave Keuning-The Killers, Jeff Oddie-Wolf Alice, Rob Ackroyd-Florence+The Machine, Phred Brown-Bruno Mars, Albert Hammond Jr., Simon Neil-Biffy Clyro.

Everyone who experiences the new Fender Bassbreaker amp describes it in a different way, using different words. But the Bassbreaker is so versatile, so innovative and so unique, that despite each person’s best efforts to define it, there are no words that can do it justice.

“Something too intense, extreme or unusual to describe is beyond words.”

“There Are No Words” incites curiosity and is an invitation for consumers to experience the amp for themselves. The message is authentic, (coming from artists and real musicians), versatile (it works in all languages and regions) and can easily be refreshed.

This  Bassbreaker work has been lauded by Fender as the best campaign in the legendary brand’s history.

Jamberry Brand Book

Posted by

Jamberry Nails experienced explosive growth ($0-$300 Million) as a nail wrap company but wanted to expand beyond a product-based brand. They struggled to align their teams under a common vision and purpose, and needed help clearly defining, designing, and activating their brand. They engaged Hint to help do this and express their brand both visually and verbally. The result was the Jamberry brand book.

The brand book centered on the idea that everyone has a personal style, and Jamberry helps people discover and express their own personal style better than anyone.

Hint art directed and defined the key elements for their brand visuals and voice. Hint oversaw the creative for the brand book: design, art direction, editorial design, and photography. The design and photography reflects the authenticity of the refreshed brand in a clean and playful way. Throughout the book, the copy explains the brand structure in a sincere and positive voice; the design works in tandem to create a fun and inviting editorial introduction to the Jamberry brand.
