Branding Design Strategy and Approach
FABRECA = Fabricated + Areca
The central idea was to incorporate the core features of the company’s offerings, i.e. complete biodegradability, while conveying an organic vibe through the name.
Crafting creative products from recyclable materials requires ingenuity and finesse. The design and manufacturing stages involve extensive research and a dash of inspiration to come up with beautiful and memorable concepts. Crystallizing these into one word, we had ‘Fabricated’.
To make it meaningful and relevant, an earthy selection of words was chosen, those having a direct connection to nature. Environmental awareness, a need to save trees, reduction of plastic usage, and the central ingredient of the high-end tableware products, i.e. the Areca leaves which are used to make the products, gave us ‘Areca’.
Combining the two, we coined ‘FABRECA’ - the brand name that explicitly highlights all the values the company stands for, products that are truly crafted by nature.
The logo element is a single Areca leaf enclosed within a circle that denotes the completeness of the product. In a single glance, it represents the fact that Fabreca is a brand that aims to create serviceable and recyclable foodware for environmentally-conscious and responsible consumers.
The colours of the logo are simple monochromes that do not divert the attention of the viewer from the earthiness of the main product.
The font style used is minimal and edgy in nature to denote the simplicity yet, classy nature of their products. This is also to appeal to the tastes and dining preferences of their target audiences who are based in the UK markets.
