The gummy candy that began in a kitchen in Bonn Germany by Hans Regal Sr. is now a world renowned international brand. The iconic original gummy-bear candy has transformed into a cultural phenomenon via the appropriation of artists in luxury novelty items and pop culture.
Using existing brand assets to refresh the look and feel of the house-hold international brand to reach back to its roots while catching the attentions of loyal buyers and changing consumer base alike. The project first takes on a refresh of the incumbent plastic bag. Reframing the product window and using a more sophisticated material reframes the product in the viewer’s eye and elevates the candy.

The Revolutionary Approach
The re-imagined end product.
Unlike the previous designs, the following plastic container displays the product in an elegant half-wrapped label.

The new design below is a handful of fun!
A few more mock-ups show the possibilities of branding for different flavours and using the brand equities in a fun way.
