Turabo

Turabo was founded with a simple aim: to infuse their packaging design with positive vibes and boundless optimism. Life can be challenging and full of setbacks and we are constantly surrounded by negativity and voices that stop us from pursuing our dream. But we at Turabo believe that anything is possible if you put your mind to it. They understood how important it is to believe in yourself and to follow your dreams. Therefore, they believe that they can make a difference. They can be that voice that inspires people to do what they love.

A mark ready to inspire you

While aiming to fix issues of visibility, modernization, and consistency along all brand manifestations, the rebranding set out to better signal the new stage and status of the Turabo brand. There was only one possible way of doing this: by reinventing the brand and going back to basics. An inviting story that would once again enable restoring that connection with so many customers.

The new brand is rooted in its past and inspired by its future.

Slightly different but looking forward

The redesign process aimed to capitalize on the familiarity of the customers with the current brand elements, namely the brand name, the chromatic palette, and the logo structure, but also to permeate them with the new brand promise and enliven them to the rhythm of the modern customer.

The new logo “Turabo” aims to bring new emotions to customers. The buyer should be involved not only in the purchase process but also in the process of unpacking the product. The new brand identity captures the essence of the previous brand “Turabo” and appeals to an audience on a global level.

The main challenge was to preserve the brand equity accumulated by the old symbol and other brand property elements while introducing a new spirit of dynamism and increasing brand visibility. The new logo retains the elements that have become familiar and been ingrained in our audience’s mind. The typography system was overhauled, able to inspire and sustain order, especially when constructing large identity systems intended to work in demanding environments.

Coffee Capsule and Packaging design

Better me, a better you

Turabo believes that great coffee isn’t just a beverage; it’s an experience that has the power to enhance your mornings and brighten up your entire day. For more than a decade, Turabo has been passionate about coffee and has used it as a source of inspiration to connect with colleagues and loved ones.

Their commitment to excellence is reflected in their approach to coffee-making, which is characterized by care, attention, and a focus on making the world a better place. For Turabo, it’s all about the people. Their aim is not merely to run a coffee business; it’s to delight their customers with exquisite, timeless flavors that surprise and delight. If even a single customer is inspired to follow their dreams or pursue their passions, Turabo sees that as a success!

The experience gained from 2 other similar projects in the coffee sector, WebCoffee and Del Conte, has given us the confidence and courage to dare more.

Telling a story through illustration & packaging design

The packaging design for Turabo coffee capsules features an original story that highlights the everyday power of coffee. Through charming illustrations, it showcases how enjoying a cup of coffee during ordinary moments can transform them into special experiences. The use of a specific color illuminates the optimism that exudes from every single capsule.

The design is simple, clean, and easy to understand, standing out from other products in the category through its elegance. The typography system was also overhauled to inspire and maintain order, particularly when constructing large identity systems intended to work in demanding environments.

Flexible master packaging

To achieve this objective, a comprehensive graphic concept was developed to effectively support the entire range of Turabo’s 15 coffee products. The packaging design for each label is consistent with the overall “master packaging” solution while incorporating unique elements specific to each product without compromising the Turabo brand’s recognizability and familiarity. This approach allowed for a cohesive visual identity across all products while still maintaining their individual characteristics.

Brand Message

People often feel overwhelmed when making decisions. Having a positive mindset is crucial in analyzing and choosing between alternatives in all aspects of life, whether it’s your love life, family, work, or friendships. Being constantly cranky or blue won’t get you far. We all have bad days, but maintaining a positive attitude gives us clarity and enthusiasm.

The informal language adds a sense of accessibility, and the humility breaks down barriers. Repetition builds trust and increases awareness.
