The updated space – washed in crisp white – will highlight images featured in its new branding campaign, developed to help differentiate the company in the crowded sleep space and bring a stronger visual identity to its products. Blu Sleep is well known for its brightly colored products, and the clean white in the updated showroom makes the perfect backdrop for the designs.
Designed to emphasize the spa-like feeling consumers can experience each night on Blu Sleep mattresses and pillows, the new branding focuses on the company’s innovative technologies and features that transform sleep into a part of a beauty and wellness ritual. The company believes that the simplified narrative on the POP and packaging not only plays up its innovative technologies, it tells a visual story to which consumers can emotionally connect.
“Alex Ciccolella and I started importing Italian foam for mattresses and pillows more than a decade ago. It was time for a make-over that highlights the new ethos for our brand. Our new POP reflects that, and we have developed innovative pillow and protector packaging that is like no other on the retail showroom floor,” said Elizabeth Dell’Accio, vice president of Blu Sleep. “Blu Sleep sources the finest and healthiest sleep product components from around the world to deliver a personalized pampering experience to consumers that results in a restorative and refreshing night’s sleep.”
When creating the streamlined logo, Blu Sleep wanted to pay homage to Italy, where its foam is manufactured. A refreshing blue hue was selected to represent the vibrant ocean water of Southern Italy. On its side, the stylized “B” of the insignia evokes the shape of a plush mattress and pillow and the bold typography marries style with functionality. The new point-of-purchase (POP) and packaging highlights Blu Sleep’s unique construction and materials such as water-expanded foam, essential oils, aromatherapy, breathable fabrics.
The creative services department of Steinreich Communications Group, Inc. handled the rebranding assignment for Blu Sleep.
