When Cincinnati-based Procter & Gamble Healthcare created a new pain relief product called ThermaCare, the company looked to Libby Perszyk Kathman (Cincinnati, OH) to create a brand-identity program that would engage and educate consumers about the product’s benefits, features, and usage application. The product aims to deliver pain relief and muscle relaxation by providing “wearable heat” through an air-activated heat wrap that fits under clothing. “LPK developed the visual language to express this breakthrough product to consumers in-store,” says Brian Niccol, ThermaCare brand manager. The design uses a warm, soothing color palette and detailed product usage visuals to communicate how the product looks, what it does, and how it works. Designers developed a “telegraphic imagery” system using product photography and graphic symbols to explain the fundamentals of ThermaCare’s pain relief process. The new product rolled out nationally in January.
