Summer is just around the corner, and warm nights filled with sticky, ice-cream-stained fingers are quickly approaching. Baskin-Robbins gets ahead of the sizzling temperatures with a massive brand relaunch and a tagline that encourages customers to “Seize the Yay.”
The experience agency ChangeUp designed the beloved brand’s new visual identity system which includes a redesigned logo, packaging, and employee uniforms. The new logo takes on a vintage look reminiscent of the brand’s early days, while keeping the trademark “31” within the “BR” monogram. This refresh infuses the brand with a sense of nostalgia that remains contemporary and forward-thinking.
The platform, strategy, and supporting 360 campaign work were developed by 22squared.
Made your bed? That’s a reason to celebrate. Put on pants with actual buttons? There’s another! Legendary ice cream brand, Baskin-Robbins is celebrating the happiness ice cream brings to every moment with a refresh of the iconic brand’s logo, packaging, employee uniforms and tagline encouraging customers to “Seize the Yay” – appreciating every moment, no matter how big or small.
“For more than 75 years, Baskin-Robbins has been the destination for celebrating the moments that matter most. Our new look and manifesto recognize the extraordinary role ice cream has played in our customers’ lives, along with our continued commitment to innovation and creating someone’s next favorite flavor,” said Jerid Grandinetti, Vice President of Marketing and Culinary at Baskin-Robbins. “Small moments that spark joy often get taken for granted. We’re encouraging people to pause and celebrate any moment that brings happiness with Baskin-Robbins.”
To celebrate the rebrand, while paying tribute to its robust heritage, Baskin-Robbins is launching a collection of limited-edition merch – the very first line of branded merchandise for the 77-years young ice cream brand.
