Canadians have always appreciated balance. Proud, but humble. Polite, but with a sense of humor. Unpretentious, but classy. When we design any element for Montellier, from the iconic, award-winning blue bottle to the brand position and logo to their lifestyle-focused website, a truly Canadian approach is needed.
First working with Montellier on a bottle that would elevate brand awareness, SLD chose a deep blue color for its depth and recognizable local symbols such as the fleur-de-lis and maple leaf. As we evolved the brand position, these elements have also evolved while remaining true to the brand’s unique qualities. In new elements, such the slim cans, the products’ qualities – effervescence, the spring source – lead the storytelling. The website provided an opportunity to expand on the brand’s story through lifestyle-focused content including recipes and images. A crisp, clean palette of deep blue and white form a pristine backdrop, balanced by lighthearted bubbles and playful fonts to create a sophisticated yet unpretentious tone that is key to the Montellier brand.
The redesign has been an enormous success in growing the Montellier brand.
