A study in brand minimalism

posted on February 14th 2014 in Inspiration with 2 Comments

What would happen if you took iconic brands and minimalized the details on their packaging to their absolute minimum? Is that going to help or hurt the brand? Mehmet Gozetlik of the design collective Antrepo decided to see for himself.

Check out more examples showing the progression of these packaged brands from their current appearance to their core elements.

Some examples show a progression to a fourth level. While a few of them might work at this generic level (on merits of name alone, such as Guiness and Polo), most work best at the 3rd level of distillation, where the logo alone functions on a colored field with a particular shape (such as Pringles and Nutella).

    Very nice. Less is more … less is more. Unless of course when more is more.
