The Savvage brand has been created to primarily fulfil the nutrition & energy supplements requirements of mountain and off-road cyclists. There is a recognised issue of consumers not fully understanding their nutritional requirements and if they do there is little brand loyalty to fulfil that recognised requirement.
Savvage has identified a niche opportunity to service these consumers with the required supplementary products in handy 'day packs' for their competitive event's performance supported with nutritional advice for both core and supplements. Although supplementary products are currently available to this market from established brands the 'day packs' are unique as they are designed to remove the consumer's uncertainty of which product or supplement will provide their requirement and provide a competitive advantage to those not supplementing or supplementing incorrectly.
The 'day packs' contain a tailored selection of products to support all stages of competitive cycling from pre-energizing, through on track hydration and maintenance and post event recovery. With a matrix of requirements, a number of 'day packs' are available depending on the number of the consumer's factors, i.e. sex, body weight, course distance. The Savvage range is initially available online through the Savvage website and are supported with a PR, advertising and PPC campaign targeted directly at the mountain / off-road cycling market. To capture the consumer's hearts and minds the visual branding of Savvage is specific to this identified targeted audience.
Primary Savvage Tagline - UNLEASH YOUR INSTINCT
Savagery carries with it a less evolved and rational persona and reflects a more 'primitive' instinct.
Secondary Savvage Tagline (Product Slogan) - STAY UNLEASHED
The target demographic is generally a male, amateur / weekend mountain biker. They are not necessarily specialists, or elite athletes, but mass channel consumers. Traditional nutritional supplement brands use 'extreme labeling' to appeal to their core consumers. These are technically styled and promote hardcore 'extreme performance enhancement'.
Savvage is not a bodybuilding brand and should avoid this message. Instead the brand should be contemporary, appealing, and approachable to the niche mountain biking road cycling consumer. These consumers are not nutrition experts and do not necessarily understand what supplements they should or need to take in order to get the very best from their efforts.
LOGO DESIGN BRIEF
The Logo for 'Savvage' should reflect the fierce, untamed spirit of the competitive and gruelling nature of mountain biking. It should be easily recognisable as a stand-alone graphic and have implicit association with the core target consumer group (cyclists).
The logo for 'SAVVAGE' should be clear enough for it not to be mis-read as 'SAWAGE' or even worse 'SEWAGE'.
The logo should be striking to stand out on product packaging against competitor brands e.g www.mulebar.com
With mountain bikers being the first niche for Savvage to enter the design should have a strong visual link. Once the product grows into other niche markets, i.e. road racing, the visuals should be easily interchangeable. The consumer should have a motivational connection with the Savvage brand.
We will need the graphic to be supplied as a high res vector, so that it can be used in all scenarios.
