Putting Yourself Out There: Brand Seeking Love

Brand Persona Looks for Love on Social Media + Shipping Boxes

How better to support the brand’s “work-happy” slogan than slapping the happy on the outside of the box too? Not only does the UPS guy get a chuckle, but you further establish brand iconography and endearing product personification at the same time.

By tethering the wit to actual product characteristics, I was able incorporate trustworthiness, credibility, and workplace savvy into the straight-up sass of the brand voice, dimesionalizing it and priming it to take on the office expertise that Poppin then introduced into its storyline.
