Inspired by the world of flavors

The Bira 91 flavor rings have been derived from the beer fizz and the world of flavors the brand has to offer. Using the already established product flavour colours and the circle from the numerical ‘91’ — flavor rings have been crafted for the each of the portfolio brands. This secondary asset further strengthens the brand’s visual assets palette (monkey, bira 91 logo) and flavor associations.

Flavor rings as tertiary visual equity

Each flavour ring is formed by taking half and half of two master colours from the beer variant. The idea is to make each flavour recognisable and enable product recall.

Adding fresh consistency across touch-points.

Adding fresh consistency across touch-points.

The previous cartons while being colorful and nicely designed, lacked a cohesiveness when placed together. Each carton followed a separate system of design. The introduction of the rings bought in a much needed consistency to the design of the cartons. The new design system allows for easy adaptation across various SKUs.
