Package Design Award
Inspired by the explosive growth and popularity of the boba shop experience, Del Monte saw an opportunity to connect with Gen Z and other adventurous young consumers by launching a new highly accessible boba drink brand. Joyba would become the very first widely available packaged bubble tea at retail. Our task was to help Joyba drive more traffic, make more sales, and see more smiles with Joyba Bubble Tea. To gain visibility and promote trial, Joyba’s identity, packaging, and brand assets needed to be visually positioned as lighthearted and fun, while bringing to life the Joyba product experience.
Activation & Collateral Touchpoints
Building on both the youthful, bubbly personality of the consumer and the nature of the bubble tea experience itself, the logo and identity assets shape how the brand pops in real life. Our aim was to visualize how Joyba provides a refreshing and fun break in everyday lives in a way that’s bubbly, authentic, and adventurous.
When it came to designing the Joyba logo, we knew that “smiles make more smiles.” So we created a simple brand mark centered around a smile within the circular boba product shape and rounded letter forms that supported the fun product experience. The mark is supported by boba-inspired fruit depictions composed of colorful and multi-textured spheres that provide a fun energy and spontaneity as the graphic changes from flavor to flavor. The flexibility of the graphic depiction allows Joyba to extend to this vibrant, delightfully unexpected look across additional innovations for ready-to-drink beverages and other snacking and treat categories as the brand expands in the future.
