Stage 1

We were originally briefed to redesign the Swaddle Up Packaging Range for Love to Dream. The core objective was modernisation. The existing packaging was looking dated and as a category leader and innovator, Love To Dream needed to keep their presence fresh. The main client concern was maintaining brand recognition. 

After review we also identified there was a consumer need to increase communication and differentiation between stages and uses of products. We developed a consistent, clearer on-pack communication for product fabrics, clothing and temperature guides, product life-cycles and key benefits.

Printing economy was a factor so we created an easily stickered sizing system allowing Love to Dream to print one master artwork per SKU.

Deliverables:

– Packaging Redesign
– Range Extension
– Image Retouching

Stage 2

As part of the original redesign project we also rolled out the new design and communication hierarchy to the Stage 2 - Swaddle Up 5050 product offer.

As well as creating finished artwork across Stage One Swaddle Up and Stage 2  Swaddle Up 5050, for 13 master SKU's we also managed the retouching of new product imagery, proofing and colour correction.

Stage 3

Despite the continued success of their Stage 1 and Stage 2 Swaddle products, Love To Dream were only a small player in the 'over 6 months' Sleep Bag category.

The project objective was to convert more loyal Love to Dream consumers (mums) from their Stage 1 and 2 products into Stage 3 users. Their swaddle products have a strong Love To Dream brand DNA and it was agreed these visual cues needed to be applied to Stage 3 for brand recognition, as well as clearly communicating the new and unique product propositions.

Engineroom developed the packaging dieline for the garments. The preference was a wrap packaging which on-shelf allowed for more touch/feel of the garment, something consumers were asking for.

We created two sub-brand logos for the Love to Dream sleep suit and sleep bag. The overall design was simple and maintained visual links with the existing packaging design for Stages 1 and 2 and closing the perceived disconnect between the previous Stage 3 offer. We also incorporated the TOG and Age communication consistent with the Stage 1 & 2 systems and stickering to reduce print costs across the sizing ranges.

Deliverables:

– New Product Development
– Dieline Creation

Love To Dream have been working with Engineroom since 2014. We have only wonderful things to say about Bec and her team. Strategy, design quality, consistency, turn around times and overall attitude are their strengths. Engineroom have proved critical to developing our brand architecture which has been rolled out, successfully, worldwide. I have no hesitation in recommending Engineroom, they are a pleasure to work with.
