Fresh From The Field — No Ugly Skin by Culture & Theory

1 year ago by

This Fresh from the Field features Culture & Theory‘s latest work for No Ugly Skin. True to the brand ethos and in keeping with the distinct language of other products in the NU range the outcome is “real beauty without the bullshit.”

The Brief:

No Ugly’s launch of a market-first collagen-rich skin tonic saw us initiating a project that spanned brand, strategy, design and packaging. Drawing on No Ugly’s manifesto, the first task was to set out our stall on what would set the brand apart in the collagen and beauty space: real beauty without the bullshit. And while research into the category told us that ingredient potency and quality is key, we also had an opportunity to leverage No Ugly’s bold visual language and clear, uncomplicated packaging, adapted to play credibly in the functional beauty space. The result – a powerful, evocative new category play for a brand that’s making waves.

The Response:

No Ugly’s impassioned character and ethos allowed us to set up a clear point of view around what beauty is, and what it means for No Ugly. The world of beauty is beleaguered by complexity, complicated regimes and insta fake. No Ugly Skin is NZ’s first RTD collagen drink puts two fingers up to fake, delivering straight up efficacy, and real, glowing skin. It’s goodness from the inside, making gorgeous skin possible and life less complicated through a simple 1-a-day regime.
