A Tribute to Branding Wraps in Shanghai
A Tribute to Branding Wraps in Shanghai

Project made for Wrap & Roll in the Food industry for a B2C audience in 2020.Young affluent professionals working in the centre of Shanghai have a huge array of choices when it comes to lunch-time eating. From the Western fast-food chains, and their local competitors such as independent eateries and traditional street-food restaurants it’s easy to go a month without eating at the same venue.But in Tier 1 cities, with consumers increasingly looking for healthy options to help them cope with fast-paced modern life, and willing to pay more for a healthier option, there are opportunities for operators who can create the right offer and brand.Enter entrepreneurs Max and Luhui: “Consumers have so many choices that are cheap, quick but not necessarily healthy. We engaged The Orangeblowfish to help us develop a brand that would keep our new offer top of mind as a better alternative to local food that is full of grease and oil, and the big established western food chains that are convenient, but not too healthy.”

Branding Oh Yeah! Brewing in China
Branding Oh Yeah! Brewing in China

Project made for Oh Yeah! Brewing in the Restaurants industry for a B2C audience in 2020.Innovation in brand-building is about taking an approach that hasn’t been taken before; having the vision to see things differently and putting that vision into action. Oh Yeah Brewing is nestled in the center of Beijing’s business district of Guo Mao, amongst architectural landmarks such as the CCTVx tower and the China World Trade Centre. With Beijing’s financial hub as its neighboring clientele, the brewery looks to attract the up-and-coming affluent Chinese who seek a relaxed yet more modern social environment. The well-traveled Chinese founder wanted to develop a new atmosphere that would challenge the hard-surfaced, grungy, industrial garages of your typical craft beer bar. An experienced expert in microbrewing and F&B boss put his dream into practice: creating a beer paradise to allow city-dwellers to escape from the difficulties and pressures of urban life. He wanted to create a comfortable space where people could sit back with friends for hours-on-end, enjoying delicious bites and uncomplicated, easy-to-drink, fresh beer.

The Orangeblowfish manifests everything about “creativity”. They create brand installations that are iconic and memorable. Their creations have an instant recognizable Lindt story. We’re ecstatic with the results.

Jacob BlissDesign Manager at LinkedIn
The Orangeblowfish team was spot on in visually representing our brand inspiration throughout our Shanghai office. The result exceeded our expectations: an office and EGD (Environmental Graphic Design) that is artistic, bold, playful, stimulating creativity and communication. I highly recommend The Orangeblowfish to any other organization that wants to stimulate employee creativity and engagement, leveraging environmental spaces using imaginative design.

Ben ConditChief Strategy Officer at Mindshare Worldwide
The Orangeblowfish came recommended, and true enough they didn't disappoint. The team genuinely cares about creating a brand experience that matched the vibe for our agency -- culture and daily work. They are brand strategists who are able to meticulously execute their vision through different forms of art and storytelling, to the finest detail, and get the final delivery perfect every time. Absolutely inspiring!
