The Curvy Cucumber Lemonade

The idea behind Cucu started after exploring fun ideas to characterise the product: Curvy cucumbers are imperfect but lovable products, and giving them a sense of humanity is an effective way to generate empathy in the consumer.

First came the idea of a “Limbo Lemo” - The Curvy Dancer. Did you spot it in the logo evolution gif above? Well, from this, the idea evolved around a C shaped Cucumber, giving birth to a curvy, illustrative typography: Cucu, which comes in lots of fun shapes and sizes:

The Bottle Labels

The Label exploration started with a composition of simple illustrative flavour shapes: The lemon, the mint and the curvy cucumber. And how they all work together in a fun, colourful, multi-layer styled illustration.

The Bottles

The strength of this concept lies in the detail at the back of the bottle: A negative curvy space revealing the content of the bottle.
This creative touch refers of course to the essence of the product itself: A lemonade made out of curvy cucumbers.

4 Pack Carrier

The 4pack has a very sober / simple design, revealing entirely the curvy cut in the bottle's label.
The choice of cardboard material was made to support the sustainable aspect of the brand: Recycled products, recycled materials.
From a top view, the 4 pack bottle caps cleverly form the square Cucu logo, an additional touch re-enforcing the brand identity.
