Arranging your own funeral, not really something your look forward to. In fact, many people choose not to talk about it at all. Understandable, but not really useful because when the moment comes, you unnecessarily saddle up your loved ones with arrangements and hassle.
ZorgDomein makes it possible for healthcare providers and their patients to choose the most suitable care digitally. Connecting patients, referrers and care providers digitally in order to make care function better and to keep it accessible and affordable for everyone.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the cooperation accelerated from day 1, with ZorgDomein being in the news several times, including at AvroTros Radar.
Frank Schippers: “When we started working with ZorgDomein in February, we could never have imagined that a few weeks later we would teaming up in ‘an unforeseen historical project’.”
What followed was a flying start together with the ZorgDomein team to support care as much as possible during this crisis with current data and solutions to get the delayed care started again. Current events put the strategy into practice and put it to the test.
Now the dutch need to know this, also the companies and entrepreneurs. And you don’t wrap news like this in a standard print ad with an installer holding a solar panel in his hands, right?
Exactly, we thought so too! So this needs to be more distinctive and creative, maybe tickle your funny bone a little bit. And if the customer dares to do it, your ad should actually be a centerfold in that business magazine or at least on a tile … ha!
In addition to the campaign work, the development of POS material and a completely new website, Martin and Lewis has also developed a new packaging line for the Care Plus brand.
This process was carried out in close collaboration with the Care Plus team, where it was important that the entire line received a ‘refreshment’ without losing reference with the old packaging completely.
Basic principles of design
Designing a new packaging line is an intensive process, especially if so many factors have to be taken into account. This includes the aforementioned requirements, brand recognition, mandatory on-pack information, legibility, category classification, format, use of materials, different languages, good visibility on the shelf and, of course, understandable information for the consumer. A lot of knowledge and expertise is needed to take this into account in a packaging line with more than 100 SKUs.
Cost savings through more efficient purchasing and production
Not only was a design made for the new packaging line, we also sat down with Care Plus and the printers to achieve a more efficient way of production. This resulted in savings of more than 20%!
Design and test
To know whether the new line would meet the principles, the help of research agency and business partner Validators was called in to test various design variations of the packaging. With the data obtained from these studies, the designs were further optimized.
Packaging photography and 3D
For the new packaging, photography was not chosen, as is usually the case. It was 3D modeling instead. Certainly for the products that are often used in different media, this has a number of advantages when properly addressed:
- Products can be delivered quickly and easily at any angle without having to re-enter the studio
- Products in series are always at exactly the same angle and in the same light
- Products can also be animated for use in video
- Special requests from customers or partners can be met quickly and easily, whether for print or online
Buy One, Give One
The Care Plus team is not only busy with supplying products and providing information. No, there is another thing that drives the team in Almere: the worldwide elimination of malaria. This disease makes millions of victims every year and kills more than 430,000 people every year, including many children. This must stop! The Buy One, Give One program contributes to the goal of a malaria-free world by 2030 and is so important to Care Plus that it has been included on every new Care Plus product package: malariafree2030.org
The result is a balanced design that is completely contemporary and does justice to what the Care Plus brand stands for: professional, clear, accessible and understandable. Despite the fact that there is a lot of information on the various product packaging, we have succeeded in putting a clear line in it by consistently implementing the choices made.
At Martin and Lewis we find it important and exciting to use our knowledge and skills for a good cause. The Handicapped Sports Fund relies heavily on donations and if we can help to increase the number of donors, that is a rewarding task.
The Handicapped Sports Fund supports non-profit sports organizations. So that everyone with a disability, close to home, gets the opportunity to exercise. We think this is a great initiative and we are proud that we are going to help the Handicapped Sports Fund to strengthen their brand and to increase the number of donors. So that even more athletes with a handicap, close to home, have the opportunity to exercise.
