Stage 3 Sleep Suits and Sleep Bags

PROJECT: New Product Development
CLIENT: LOVE TO DREAM

BACKGROUND:

Despite the continued success of their Stage 1 and Stage 2 Swaddle products, Love To Dream were only a small player in the 'over 6 months' Sleep Bag category. Representing only 10% of the brands overall sales, loyal consumers were tending to leave the brand after use of stages 1 & 2.

As the 6 month plus Sleep Bag segment is much larger than the Stage 1 and 2 Swaddle Category, Love To Dream were missing a huge growth opportunity. They had tried previously to expand into this market but weren't overly successful due to the disconnect between the Stage 3 products and the existing Stage 1 & 2 offering.

Their swaddle products have a strong Love To Dream brand DNA and it was agreed this look was diluted at Stage 3. Consequently, they decided to delete their Stage 3 offerings and restructure with two new products under a new proposition.

Packaging Design Objectives:

The project objective was to convert more loyal Love to Dream consumers (mums) from their Stage 1 & 2 products into Stage 3 users. The packaging design needed to link visual cues for brand recognition, as well as clearly identify the new and unique product propositions.

Love to Dream identified that they had to appeal to parents of two types of kids: 1. Calm/Placid & 2. Super Active, so they developed two new products that hone in on these children; a sleep bag for the more placid sleepers and a sleep suit with '2 in 1' feet for the active.

Engineroom first created the packaging dieline for the garments. The preference was a wrap packaging which on-shelf allowed for more touch/feel of the garment, something consumers were asking for.

We then created two sub-brand logos for the Love to Dream sleep suit and love to dream sleep bag and an overall design that was modern and fresh with simple communication - maintaining visual links with the existing packaging design for Stages 1 & 2 and closing the perceived disconnect between the stages. The design solution needed a two part communication objective with a focus on seasonality.

Dream Sleep Bag: A Sleep Bag that helps your child stay warm and secure all night long.

Dream Sleep Suit: A Sleep Suit with legs that helps your child stay secure and warm all night and on the go.

We also used TOG and Age communication consistent with the Stage 1 & 2 systems and stickering to reduce print costs across the sizing ranges.
