‘Disruptive’ Design From Harrogate Water

‘Disruptive’ Design From Harrogate Water

Harrogate Water, Britain’s largest independent producer of bottled water, has unveiled a ‘daring and disruptive’ shrink wrap design to give stand-out appeal to its retail multipacks. The new style borrows from the brand’s artistic roots to create something design-led and avant-garde with abstract bursts of colour.

Brand manager Nicky Cain says: “When contemplating a new design, we could see that the beverage shelves abound with confidence and colour, but mostly from fizzy drinks. Our mission from the outset was to break the mould, to create something visually stunning and innovative, that would provide standout appeal and allow us to mix it up a little.

“The result is both striking and avant-garde. The eye-catching design is both daring and disruptive. It exudes confidence and adds a bit of fun into the mix too, whilst remaining firmly rooted in the history of the brand, which is extremely important to us.

“In collaboration with food brand specialists CHILLI, we have used elements of the Turkish-inspired pattern from Harrogate’s famous Royal Baths, which we use on our labels for Harrogate Spring. The pattern was redrawn, deconstructed and rescaled to create an abstract bolder visual. The design is a combination of the old and new, with a stunning twist for exceptional on-shelf appeal.”

The strong colour scheme uses red and blue layered shapes on the still water packs and green and blue for sparkling.

Andy Heap from CHILLI, based in Leeds, says: “When considering the creation of a new visual identity for the packaging, we wanted a modern aesthetic style that retained a symbolic connection with the brand’s history and authenticity. We took our cues from the original Royal Baths pattern used on the bottle label, with the aim of creating something adventurous and forward-thinking, while also reflective of the brand’s illustrious spa story, underling the brand values and attitude of Harrogate Water.”

Harrogate’s first spa was discovered in 1571 and the water was first bottled in 1740, making it the original British bottled water. Harrogate became the first British spa and was celebrated by the Victorians who built the magnificent Royal Baths and Royal Pump Room.
