The project started off with an extensive research on the psychology of the consumer and how the unboxing of ice cream impacts the user and what the customer journey is. The connection between ice cream and emotions became evident after a few steps and what caught my attention was the response from most female participants during the survey that the one time they need ice cream the most is when on their period.
Ice cream is beyond just a food item, it’s something that can make a bad day a good one. It is a sweet escape for a few. Speaking of Baskin Robbins, they are a youthful brand and don’t shy away from experimenting. Baskin Robbins’ brand strategy is keeping it vibrant and hopping onto trends to reach out to the user bases. Clubbing these two ideas, I came up with the Period Edition with a twist to the basic container itself. The 1L pack mimics a pizza and that creates a completely unique experience and creates excitement. The color palette is very soothing and radiates comfort which are the most important things to a female on her period . The pack has a very catchy phrase on top that says ‘Oh Cramp’ which is a modified version of the very popular phrase ‘oh crap’ among the youth and induces humor and makes it immediately attractive. It caters to a very wide user base.
