Customizing HDPE bottles and containers takes this already versatile material to the next level, allowing brands to create packaging that aligns perfectly with their identity and product requirements.

Customization allows you to integrate your brand’s logo, colour scheme, and other design elements seamlessly into the packaging. This helps leave a lasting impact on customers in addition to reiterating the business identity.
3. Variety in Sizes and Shapes: Different products have different requirements when it comes to packaging.

Case Study on the Strategic Impact of Adding Water Droplet on Bottle Design
Marico, a leading player in the hair care and edible oil industry, faced intense competition in a market saturated with various hair oil brands. As many companies started copying their bottles and product. In a bid to differentiate itself, the company embarked on a unique journey by making a seemingly small alteration to the bottle design of its famous “Parachute” brand —adding a water drop like structure on bottle changed the whole scenario for company. This case study explores how this minute change not only enhanced the brand’s visual appeal but also strategically positioned Parachute to eliminate competition.
The primary objectives of the bottle design modification were:
1. Distinctiveness: Develop a visually striking bottle design that distinguishes Parachute from competitors on the shelf.
2. Visual Representation: Convey the hydration benefits of the hair oil product in a way that resonates with consumers.
3. Memorability: Create a design that leaves a lasting impression on consumers, making Parachute the go-to choice in a crowded market.
Marico partnered with a creative design team to rethink its Parachute bottle design strategy. After in-depth market research and consumer insights, the team proposed a simple yet impactful addition to the packaging—a small water droplet strategically placed on the bottle.
1. Symbolic Representation: The water droplet was chosen as a symbolic representation of the product’s hydrating benefits. This subtle addition communicated to consumers that Parachute’s hair oil not only nourished the hair but also provided essential moisture.
2. Strategic Placement: The placement of the water droplet was carefully considered. It adorned the label in a way that complemented the brand’s logo, creating a cohesive and visually appealing design that was both memorable and meaningful.
3. Colour Palette Enhancement:
The colour palette was adjusted to incorporate shades of blue and green, further emphasizing the water droplet theme. This adjustment not only enhanced the overall aesthetics but also conveyed a sense of freshness and vitality.
1. Visual Differentiation: The addition of the water droplet immediately set Parachute apart from competitors. The visual distinctiveness captured the attention of consumers, making the product easily recognizable on store shelves.
2. Emotional Connection: The water droplet design created an emotional connection with consumers by visually representing the hydrating benefits of the product. This resonated well with individuals seeking hair care solutions that not only nourished but also provided essential moisture.
3. Memorable Branding: The strategic placement of the water droplet contributed to a memorable branding experience. Consumers began associating Parachute with hydration, reinforcing the brand’s commitment to holistic hair care.
4. Competitive Edge: The unique bottle design which is design registered, became a powerful differentiator, giving Parachute a competitive edge in the market. Competitors struggled to match the brand’s visual appeal and symbolic representation.
