Ionic Communications Group (Cincinnati OH) a brand development firm collaborated with One80 designers to provide the branding and graphic communications for the new package. The 32-oz bottle is uniquely shaped to look like a drainpipe. According to designers this pipe imagery is immediately recognizable in a retail context next to the competition driving home the core values of the brand. Functionally the package delivers an array of attributes including a no-splash feature centralized hand position ergonomic handgrip and integrated thumb pad for optimal control in gripping and pouring. The graphics tie in well with the bottle shape integrating the pipe.
