Roma. Cyclical Branding® Design Management

YC_ROMAimage1image3

In the eternal city, Rome, we had the pleasure of leading the “Cyclical Branding Design Management” workshop with Marc Guitart and Maja Zalaszewska from the brandoma® team in the three venues of the Istituto Europeo di Design in Rome.


The training that Marc Guitart and the brandoma® team delivered during this week was composed of a
practical, agile and direct workshop, where the students could understand and feel first-hand successful branding experiences and then proceed with practical cases where the cyclical branding® methodology applied in Design Management, marked the evolutionary phases of all the projects that were carried out. The sessions were focused in the way that students, more than 350 participants from different backgrounds of the design world, could know and develop the cyclical, evolutionary and interdisciplinary mentality that the tomorrow’s companies demand.


We want to thank IED Roma, the opportunity to show future design professionals and entrepreneurs what Design Management is and how this new methodology allows to generate a
constant and successful business evolution. Ci vediamo presto Roma!

Spice up your life at Gewürzhaus Herb & Spice Merchants // 用香料來豐富您的生活 – Gewürzhaus Herb & Spice Merchants 的香料店鋪

BDEY_BannerJoyce-DEF

The ‘scooping-your-own’ concept

A few years ago, I was fortunate enough to visit the bazaar of Isfahan in central Iran. Walking in the bazaar was like walking in a maze.  The stalls that attracted me to stop by the most were the ones with the colorful hand painted miniatures,  hand-crafted plates, colorful spices, and sweets.  Displayed nicely in big bags.  I could smell a cloud of spice aromas envelope the entire bazaar.  Next to the spices and herbs were dried nuts and fruit. Salesmen loudly offered dried pistachios and dried fruit for customers to try.  Men and women came to the spices stalls, the shopkeeper scooped up, bagged, and then handed to customers the amazing spice mix.

A few years later, in Sydney, I noticed that the concept of scooping-your-own has become a sustainable way of shopping and has become a retail trend, particularly in wholefood stores and organic supermarkets. The concept of scooping-your-own means that much less food is paid for and wasted.  Customers could select varities of spices, create their own blend of spices.  This kind of personalised experiences attracts customers and encourages them to come back to the store again and again.

 

Case Study: GewürzhausHerb & Spice Merchants in the Strand Arcade, Sydney

“Have you ever experienced a bazaar or market-place in Middle-Eastern and South Asian cities? “ – I asked my friend as we walked into GewürzhausHerb & Spice Merchants.  Located in the Strand Arcade, one of the most iconic Victorian heritage builidngs in the CBD of Sydney, GewürzhausHerb & Spice Merchants is a boutique retail store that offers more than 350 single-origin spices, herbs, salts, peppers, teas, and sugars from around the world.

Gewürzhausmeans ‘spice house’ in German. Sisters Eva and Maria Konecsny from Melbourne are the owners of the shop.  The siblings are passionate about cooking and food.  Coming from German root, their first store was opened in Carlton, Melbourne in 2001.  Each Gewürzhausstore has its own personality through its interior scheme.

The Sydney store was designed by Melbourne-based studio, Doherty Design. It was designed to encourage customers to explore the shop; to smell, touch, and taste the products.  Like the experience in a Middle-Eastern bazaar, but not exactly the same.  All herbs, spices, salts and tea are self-scooped by customers instead of being served by the shopkeeper.  Goods are featured and stored in the tubs instead of being stored in the big bags.  Customers are invited to sample the products by lifting the lids of any of the tubs, scooping some of its content, and then seeing and smelling it. Spices and blends in the store were displayed according to cuisine types and country of origin: Australian, South East Asian, Indian and Middle Eastern.

“It was important to maintain that tradition of refined German shopkeeping in both service and aesthetic, and to let the spices and their history speak for themselves,” said the owners of Gewürzhaus.“Doherty Design Studio draws attention to the age and history of the spices through a timeless design, which could be current now or 100 years ago. That is what references our spices’ histories, not the exoticism of their backgrounds” – quoted from blog writing of Tess Ritchie, April 7th2015 Indesignlive.

 

Engaging all five senses of the customers:

A good interior design provides customer with a spatial perception experience and enables interaction with the products in the store.  Customers have five sensory responses as they navigate through a store: sight, smell, touch, taste and sound.

  1. Sight:

Gewürzhaus remindedus of walking into a boutique street store in Europe.  The display of the tubs with colorful spices and herbs, however, reminded us of walking through a Middle-Eastern bazaar, and good space planning allowed us to explore the store easily.  Every tub of spice in Gewürzhaus was individually labeled, and provided four main types of information: ingredients, origin of product, price and description of use.  The visual branding, packaging design, and attractive product display captured customers’ visual attention.

  1. Smell:

Before we entered the shop, the cloud of spice aromas made us want to stop before we went into the shop.  Exploring the shop was like exploring a Middle-Eastern bazaar, we opened the lid of the tubs, scooped the spices and herbs, and smelled it.  A good scent was generally perceived as positive attraction for the customers to go in or stay longer in the shop.  For many of us coming from diverse cultural backgrounds, we explored the scents, and searched for the pieces of our childhood memories by smelling the mixed spices and herbs; it reminded us of the dishes that our grandparents or parents used to cook.

  1. Touch:

The self-scoop format definitely made the shopping experience more engaging and makes customers more likely to buy things.  By experiencing scooping the products through interactions, a more personal connection is created.  A convenient self-service weighing station was available for customer’s use. Customers could scoop their desired quantity, and put them into specially designed packaging bags.

  1. Taste:

One of the best parts about exploring the shop was that we could sometimes taste some of the spices and herbs.  Occasionally the staff in the shop would serve us herbal tea.  In the Advent period prior to Christmas, we were served Christmas tea.  For some special events, customers are invited to Gewürzhaus’s own cooking school where they would serve the food that are cooked with mixed spices from their store’s products.

  1. Sound:

In the shop, the conversations we overheard from shopkeepers and customers were inevitably about food; how certain spices can blend well with certain meat dishes; how to mix and make an authentic Thai Tom Yum soup; what to sprinkle on top of a cake.  The conversations that customers overheard from other people’s discussions can make good impressions on them when shopping for products in the store. Hence, having a passion for cooking and being a food lover are must-have qualities the store looks for when they hire retail sale assitants.

When we explored the in-store experience of Gewürzhaus, we touched on the topic of how customer’s perception responded to the physical environment around them.  We observed and explored how humans’ five senses responded to the products and the store circulation.  We learnt that human emotion was a key link in the shopping experience.

 

Customer experience through digital interactive design:

In every purchase that I made in Gewürzhaus, I received their business card that came along with their unique package. On the business card, text in brand’s color, gold, was used to show Gewurzhaus’ s website and social media accounts.  Customers shared what they cooked over the week or weekends on their social media by hash-tagging the name of #Gewürzhaus. People found information of Gewürzhaus through their friends’ social media posting, which is a successful way of marketing.

The website was strategically designed in conjunction with the actual products that displayed in the physical retail shops.  Instead of going to the physical shops, it gave customers a more flexible option in the ways of shopping.  As we navigated the website, we could find detailed descriptions and historical background about the varieties of herbs, spices, salt & pepper, and tea.  Like navigating in their physical shops, the website is also designed with good visual design and navigation.  However, with online shopping, customers can’t touch, smell and taste the products through the digital shop.  Hence, customers either already knew about the products or they purchased based on the information they read from the website.

To enhance customer experience,  Gewürzhaus also provided cooking classes, which we could book online.  Given that the design of the shop took inspiration from traditional spice markets of exotic locations throughout the world, the cooking classes were also modelled with variety of cooking classes based on different cultural cuisines around the world.  If customers could not goto the cooking classes, variety of recipes were also available.

 

We can take GewürzhausHerb & Spice Merchants as a case study of how customers are engaged both emotionally and behaviorally, of how communication on social media and physical retail stores should both excel in emotional appeal, and of how to encourage various forms of interaction with the brand.  Increasingly, success at retail is less about what the retailer has to sell and more about how they sell it.  Personalization has also been the latest trend in retail.  In this case, customers self-service their own preferred portion of spices, select varieties of spices, create their own blend of spices, and learn more about food cooking through available videos or recipes from websites or cooking classes; these are all part of the personalization trend.

GewürzhausHerb & Spice Merchants showed us a good example of branding strategy by combining their good in-store customer service, as well as with the interactive experience through actual cooking classes and social media platforms; this kind of personalised experiences kept customers coming back to their brand again and again. More importantly, it gave customers the sensation of being in an exotic spice market; and experienced the taste of their own cooking of the exotic cuisines.  We didn’t need to travel far to the Middle-East or South Asia, but we could simply use the spices from Gewürzhaus, cook the exotic dishes in our own kitchens in our cozy homes.

 

‘自助舀’的概念

幾年前,我很幸運地參觀了位於伊朗中部文化古都伊斯法罕的bazaar 傳統市場。走在bazaar 傳統市場就像走進迷宮裡一樣。吸引我停下來最多次的攤位, 是那些賣彩色手繪小刀和手工製作盤子的攤位,還有豐富多彩的香料和糖果的攤位,而香料和糖果都放在各個不同的大袋子裡展示著。我可以聞到各種香料和烹飪用的草藥,一股香料香味籠罩著整個bazaar 傳統市場。緊鄰香料攤位的,是堅果和乾果的攤販。店主大聲叫賣著,並邀請經過的顧客試吃。顧客們都來到了這些攤位選擇他們要的香料、乾果等;店主便將其一一舀起裝袋後,遞給顧客、結帳;就這樣完成了每筆交易。

幾年之後,現在居住在澳洲雪梨的我注意到,隨著現代零售趨勢的演變,特別是對於整個食品商店和有機超市而言,’自助舀’ 的概念一直是可持續的購物方式。一切自給自取的方式,減少了食物被過度支付和浪費。這種個性化的體驗,更吸引了顧客一次又一次的回到店家購買。

 

案例研究:雪梨Strand ArcadeGewürzhaus Herb & Spice Merchants的香料店鋪

當我走進Gewürzhaus Herb&Spice Merchants的香料店鋪時,我問同行的朋友,”你有沒有去逛過在中東和南亞城市的市集,或bazaar傳統市場?” — 這是我腦海中浮現的第一個問題。Gewürzhaus Herb & Spice Merchants是一家精品香料零售商店,位於雪梨中央商務區,最具代表性之一的維多利亞式遺產Strand Arcade建築內,店內提供來自世界各地350多種的香料、草藥、鹽、辣椒、茶、糖 。

品牌最早源自於德國。 Gewürzhaus意為德文的“香料屋”。來自墨爾本的姐妹Eva和Maria Konecsny是這個品牌的創業總監,姐妹熱衷烹飪和熱愛食物。他們的第一家商店於2001年在墨爾本的卡爾頓開業,每個Gewürzhaus商店都擁有自己的特色性的設計。雪梨Gewürzhaus商店,由墨爾本的Doherty Design室內設計工作室設計。設計的理念是鼓勵顧客在店內探索和產品有所互動,去體驗、嗅聞、觸摸、和品嚐商品。這很類似我在中東bazaar傳統市場的購物經歷,但是不完全一樣。所有的草藥、香料、鹽,和茶都是顧客可’自助舀’的形式,而不是透過店主舀取。草藥、香料、鹽,和茶被放在一個個透明的展示桶中。顧客可自行掀起任何透明桶的蓋子,舀出其中的香料。並透過看到、聞到,來選擇想購買的商品。店內的香料,也按世界美食區域性分類成:澳大利亞、東南亞、印度,和中東…等區域性的香料來陳列。

“重要的是,要保持德國精緻的店鋪服務和美學上的傳統。並讓香料及其歷史為自己說話”Gewürzhaus的業主說道。“Doherty Design 室內設計工作室想要透過香料,引起人們關注時代和歷史。我們想要強調香料的歷史,而不是香料的異國情調“ —

引自Tess Ritchie的博客寫作,2015年4月7日Indesignlive。

 

吸引所有顧客的五種感官體驗:

良好的室內設計為顧客提供空間感知體驗,並與店內的產品互動。在商店內的購物體驗中,顧客有五種自然回應;它們是我們人類感官的自然反應:視覺、嗅覺、觸覺、味覺和聽覺。

1.視覺:

Gewürzhaus是一家精緻的體驗店,提醒我們走進的是歐洲的一家精品街店。藉著五顏六色的香料和草藥,以透明桶展示,引領了我們進入異國風情的體驗。透過良好的空間規劃,我們可以在商店內輕鬆的探索。Gewürzhaus的各種香料都是單獨存放在個別的透明桶中;桶上標明了四個主要信息:成分、產品起源、價格和使用說明。店內良好的品牌視覺,包裝設計,和醒目的商品陳列,在視覺上成功吸引了顧客的注意力。

2.嗅覺:

在我們進入商店之前,濃郁的香料香味使我們停下腳步,吸引我們想進入商店內四處探索的慾望。探索這家商店就像在中東的bazaar傳統市場一樣,我們可以打開每個香料桶的蓋子,舀出香料和香草藥,細聞它們的味道。通常好的香味是極具魅力的; 它能吸引顧客進店參觀,甚至使顧客在店內停留較長的時間。對於來自不同文化背景的顧客們,在店裏可探索各種不同的香味,並透過聞到香料、香草藥,來尋找童年記憶的片段,因為這讓我們想起祖父母或父母們在我們兒時所做的菜餚。

3.觸覺:

‘自助舀’的形式確實加強了購物體驗,並鼓勵顧客變得更加投入,更有渴望購買東西。透過與商品的互動體驗方式,創造了更多個人化的連結。並提供便利的自助秤重站服務,供顧客使用。顧客可以舀取他們想要的數量,並放入特別設計的包裝袋中。

4.味覺:

探索過程其中最棒的部分,就是我們可以試吃到用店內專賣的香料烹調好的食物。有時,店員也會為我們提供涼茶試飲。而在聖誕節前的一段期間,會奉上聖誕茶。在一些特殊的活動中,顧客會被邀請到Gewürzhaus所屬的烹飪學校,在那裡顧客可用店內專賣的香料,體驗烹製食物的樂趣。

5.聽覺:

在Gewürzhaus商店裡,我們常常聽到店員與顧客在討論關於如何烹飪“食物”的話題。譬如,香料如何與某些肉類食材融合? 如何混合烹調出正宗的泰國冬蔭功湯? 何種香料撒在蛋糕上才美味等等。顧客可以從旁聽店員回答其他顧客的談話中,留下好的印象與購物經驗。因此,我想當Gewürzhaus在招募新的零售銷售店員時,其任用標準應會是選擇喜愛烹飪和食品的應徵者。

當我們在探索Gewürzhaus實體店時,我們談到了顧客的觀感,以及他們如何回應周圍環境的關係。我們觀察並探討了人類的五種感官對商品和商店流通的反應行為。我們從中了解到,人們的情感是影嚮購物體驗的主要關鍵。

 

通過數位互動設計的客戶體驗:

每一次我在Gewürzhaus購物時,從他們獨特的包裝裡都會收到一張他們的名片。名片上有用代表其品牌形象的金色行銷文字。名片上有Gewurzhaus的官網,及可在Facebook、Instagram、和Twitter 找到品牌相關訊息。顧客可透過輸入#Gewürzhaus,在Gewürzhaus 的Facebook、Instagram平台上,分享他們在本週或週末的烹飪過程或成果照片。人人就因透過朋友的社交平台動態,發現了Gewürzhaus的相關信息,而事實證明這是一種成功的行銷方式。

Gewürzhaus官網的策略性設計與實物零售店中展示的實際產品是平行一致性的行銷。官網的策略是,不需在實體店仍可以透過網路為顧客提供更靈活的購物服務。當我們在網站上瀏覽時,可以找到有關各種草藥、香料、鹽、胡椒、和茶葉的詳細描述和歷史背景; 就好像親臨實體商店中探索一樣真實。該網站也設計有良好的視覺設計和瀏覽介面。然而,透過網路購物的顧客,無法實際的去體驗、嗅聞、或試吃產品;因此,大部分的網路訂購者,可能在購物時已預先知道商品,或者根據他們從網站上讀取的信息,而來決定購買。

為了加強顧客體驗,Gewürzhaus還提供了可在線預訂的烹飪課程。鑑於該店的設計靈感是來自世界各地、異國情調的傳統香料市場,烹飪班也根據世界各地不同的美食烹飪文化,設計出各類型的烹飪課程。另外,若顧客不能親自到烹飪班學習,可以使用該網站上所提供的各種食譜來自學烹飪。

 

以Gewürzhaus Herb & Spice Merchants作為案例研究,我們提到用戶體驗,這意味著透過網路社交媒體和實體零售商店的設計,可以看到透過顧客個人的情感、行為,與品牌的各種互動過程。現今成功的零售業者,不再只是關心要賣什麼商品,更多關係的是在於他們如何銷售。個性化就是零售業銷售的最新趨勢。在這種情況下,允許顧客自助拿取他們喜歡的各種香料,並混合在一起。或者透過視頻或網站上的食譜資訊自學烹飪,這些都是個性化趨勢的一部分。

Gewürzhaus Herb & Spice Merchants的香料店鋪,向我們展現了一個很棒的品牌策略範例,他們結合了良好的店內顧客服務、提供實體烹飪課程,和網路社交平台的互動體驗;這樣個性化的體驗,培養顧客一次又一次地回到他們的店購物。更重要的是,它給了消費者猶如置身在異國情調的香料市場上購物的感覺,並體驗自己烹飪異國風美食的滋味。我們不需要遠行到中東或南亞,但可以簡單地使用Gewürzhaus的香料,舒適的在家中廚房烹飪出美味的異國菜餚。

Digital brands // Marcas digitales

The technology is immersed in our lives a little more than 60 years, we live with it daily and without realizing we have lived its exponential evolution in our society, and today, the digital environments are a new channel from which we can communicate messages quickly and effectively.

The brands and the universe that conforms them has been characterized by adapting to the continuous technological changes, the first advertising spot in the United States, – advertising influence-date of the year 1941, a 10-second advertisement that would mark the beginning of a technological trend with the objective of being part of a new communication channel of massive diffusion. Today, with the development of a new and immensely advanced technology, we are seeing the same messages that are being migrated to new entertainment platforms such as Netflix or any development that allows access to the same service that has been available for more than 60 years. The change is inevitable, the question is How do you want to live it?

Brandcelona digital is our ​​technological development area for brands; from our laboratory of innovation and strategic leadership, we look for the way of creating strategic bridges between two hemispheres of communication. Our strategic perspective is clear, the analog or offline world, together with the digital or online world that are not competition and one does not overlap the other, on the contrary, they become two halves that complement each other to generate new experiences that are adaptes to the new vision of the market. We do not understand digital development only by designing web pages, in brandcelona digital we design, think and manage digital experiences in coherent communication channels that are bound to the strategic development of a brand, and therefore, do not understand or limit digital resources as a tool only to use in a computer, but for us the digital world is a new scenary that allows us to communicate messages in a more interactive and dynamic ways, offering the possibility of granting movement, speed, efficiency and innovation to each concept that we want to expose differently in a site or channel.

The impersonality that transmits the digital environment is not inevitable, it is simply optional and it is the duty of each brand to break this barrier to understand the digital transformation.

In digital brandcelona we try to find innovatives and disruptives ways for brands that want to hug the XXI century technology in an agile and effective way in order to follow a coherent brand conductive thread. If you want to discover the way of your brand in the XXI century, write to manager@brandcelona.com and book a personal consultory with the team.

La tecnología lleva inmersa en nuestras vidas un poco más
de 60 años, convivimos con ella a diario y sin darnos cuenta hemos vivido su evolución exponencial en nuestra sociedad, hoy por hoy, los entornos digitales son un nuevo canal desde el cual podemos comunicar mensajes de manera rápida y e caz.

Las marcas y el universo que las conforman se han caracterizado por adaptarse a los continuos cambios tecnológicos, el primer spot publicitario en Estados Unidos, -foco de in uencia de la publicidad-data del año 1941, un anuncio de 10 segundos que marcaría el inicio de una tendencia tecnológica con el objetivo de acoplarse dentro de un nuevo canal de comunicación de difusión masiva. A día de hoy, con un desarrollo de nuevas tecnologías inmensamente avanzadas, estos mismos mensajes los estamos viendo migrar
a nuevas plataformas de entretenimiento como Net ix o cualquier desarrollo que permita acceder al mismo servicio que hace más de 60 años. El cambio es inevitable, la pregunta es ¿Cómo quieres vivirlo?

Brandcelona digital es nuestra área de desarrollo tecnológico para marcas; desde nuestro laboratorio de innovación y liderazgo estratégico, buscamos la manera de establecer puentes estratégicos entre dos hemisferios de comunicación. Nuestra perspectiva estratégica es clara, el mundo analógico u o -line, junto al mudo digital u on-line no son competencia y uno no solapa al otro, por el contrario, se convierten en dos mitades que se complementan para
 generar nuevas experiencias que se adapten a la nueva
 visión del mercado. No entendemos el desarrollo digital solo diseñando páginas webs, en brandcelona digital diseñamos, pensamos y gestionamos experiencias digitales en canales de comunicación coherentes que se ciñan al desarrollo estratégico de una marca, y por ende, no entendemos ni limitamos los recursos digitales como una herramienta para usar en un ordenador simplemente, para nosotros el mundo digital es un nuevo escenario que permite comunicar mensajes de manera más interactiva y dinámica, ofreciendo la posibilidad de otorgar movimiento, rapidez, eficacia e innovación a cada concepto que se quiere exponer de manera diferente en un sitio o canal determinado.

La impersonalidad que trasmite el entorno digital no es inevitable, simplemente es opcional y es deber de cada marca romper esta barrera para entender la transformación digital.

En brandcelona digital buscamos encontrar salidas innovadoras y disruptivas para marcas que quieran abrazar la tecnología en el s. XXI de una manera ágil y efectiva, de tal manera de seguir un hilo conductor de marca coherente. Si quieres conocer el camino de tu marca en el s. XXI, escribe a manager@brandcelona.com y reserva una consultoría personalizada con nuestro equipo.

Los retail tours de brandrid® unen la teoría y la práctica del Diseño de Negocios, analizando cada uno de los aspectos más importantes que intervienen en el proceso de compra y la experiencia de usuario. La marca, el packaging, el diseño del espacio, de producto y el posicionamiento corporativo se analizan y proponen nuevas fórmulas para inspirar nuevas ideas y soluciones que se adapten al universo corporativo y al usuario. ¡Queremos ser tus brand managers preferidos! Y para ello, te ofrecemos un viaje diferente en el que explorar espacios de éxito de la ciudad de Madrid. A la vez, te proporcionaremos las herramientas de análisis y la visión que ayudará a aplicar y ejecutar tales conceptos en tu negocio con el fin de mirar juntos hacia el futuro.

El mercado está migrando su paradigma industrial y se vuelca en la importancia humanística de los negocios. El concepto de valor se ha reescrito y la materialidad del lujo pasa a ser intangible haciendo que sea esencial apelar a la emoción del usuario. En esta línea, introducimos un nuevo servicio de consultoría en el que queremos apostar por un nuevo modelo de negocio en el que la memorabilidad de las experiencias sea transversal y entendida por todos los agentes implicados. Todo ello debe ser tangible en tu negocio y ayudar tanto a satisfacer a los usuarios ya sensibilizados, así como ayudar a crear nuevos embajadores de marca. Una experiencia de usuario memorable es innovación y se adapta a la visión de un nuevo modelo de mercado. ¡Haz crecer tu negocio apostando por la emoción!

La experiencia de usuario es nuestro principal foco, pues hacer que éste se sienta cómodo y satisfecho es nuestra máxima y animamos a que también sea la de todos los profesionales del comercio. Podemos ofrecerte este punto de vista porque somos diseñadores y entendemos los engranajes emocionales de los usuarios y las tendencias de mercado.

Nuestros retail tours aprovechan todo nuestro conocimiento y experiencia en diferentes sectores como profesionales en proyectos de creación de universo de marca 360º, para destacar soluciones y propuestas de éxito y dar las herramientas y claves para aplicarlas eficazmente en tu comercio o empresa. Además, son una oportunidad para descubrir espacios que han apostado por la innovación en un mercado cada vez más exigente apropiándose del carácter y estilo de vida de Madrid.

Conocer cómo lo hacen los mejores espacios y sentirlo de primera mano, te ayudará a inspirar tu visión de negocio.
