Vision

A redesign aimed to connect the idea to the concept

Hypothesis

Our challenge was to anchor the values and passion of avocado lovers, combining technology and design into a truly memorable experience.

 

We decided to take a minimalistic path and applied a matte colour palette, trying different looks for avocados’ specific use.

Ideation

California it’s a special place — the people, the beaches, the forests, the mountains and everything else. To give you an idea of what makes California Avocados particularly special, less than 1 percent of the state is suitable for growing them. We’re talking only the richest rich soil, the freshest coastal breezes and, of course, the warm California sun. The most sublime weather conditions foster the growth of our superfood. This, accompanied by the care of more than 3,000 California Avocado growers, ensures that creamy avocado tastes with each slice.
