Backdrop— A New Way to Paint

The Brief

Buying paint is a painful, time-consuming experience. Direct to Consumer (DTC) brand Backdrop came to us with the mission to transform the whole process. With a name and a vision, the goal was to merge home design and tech to create a purchasing experience for modern consumers. We brought this brand strategy to life; from the logo to the paint can to photography style.

Backdrop wanted to be transparent, easy-to-use, and empowering. So, we designed a visual identity that celebrates the fun and personal process of making your home reflect you. Our graphic and industrial designers worked side-by-side to apply the new identity to Backdrop’s painting tools and packaging, and ensure the brand’s in real life experiences measured up to its digital expression.
