The Scotts Snap Spreader System debuts with packaging designed to take the guesswork out of lawn care. The product line includes a spreader and specially formulated products for specific lawn care needs, such as controlling weeds, killing insects and fertilizing.
To help consumers easily identify which product is the best fit for their lawn care needs. “The visual design needed to communicate that this is an integrated lawn care system with key features and benefits – essentially that a beautiful lawn is just a Snap away,” says Rick Barrack, chief creative officer, CBX. The Scotts Company collaborated with CBX, a brand agency based in New York City. CBX was also part of a team of agencies that worked with The Scotts Company on the Snap name.
Once the product name was confirmed, the CBX design team brought it to life with an approachable, contemporary typeface for the Snap logo and then locked it up with the brand logo. Aspirational graphics were developed and bright colors used on each Snap Pac, including a blue sky on the upper half of the bag and vibrant green grass imagery on the lower half to showcase the end benefit. A three-step instructional inset of Snap, Lock and Go illustrates how simple it is for homeowner’s to use the lawn care system. Finally, the close-up circle device depicts the solution to lawn care with the background grass and blue sky representing the end benefit.
