Briefly describe this entry’s communications objectives and how it met those objectives (up to 100 words):
Our goal was to provide customers with a visually appealing—even fun—
interactive product introduction.
Most launches are released in easily-overlooked folders; this kit was enclosed
in an intentionally nonstandard-sized box.
The chameleon logo served three purposes: it embodied the “changeability” of
the product and enabled us to feature a vivid array of colors that attract
attention (an essential element) while serving as an example of the kit’s
webbing options. The cut-out nature of the design provided a depth that lured
in the viewer.
Since customers typically breeze over extensive text, we used graphics whenever
possible to illustrate our points.
