BLVR, an independent branding agency that empowers brands to fearlessly live out their beliefs through universal truths, creative experiences, and cultural storytelling, is proud to announce they swept the recent GDUSA Health and Wellness Design Awards winning best brand identity and best packaging design for their ISLE work.
The GDUSA Health and Wellness Design Awards is a competition that honors graphic excellence to those brands in a fast growing industry ranging from traditional medical and healthcare to healthy lifestyles. As a 2020 winner, BLVR is recognized as one of the top leaders to think outside of the box within the health and wellness industry.
“When crafting ISLE’s new brand, we leaned into the idea of balance, playing off the balance it takes to stand up on a board. We positioned ISLE and the activity of stand-up paddle boarding as the ultimate solution to modern life — not just a physical workout, but a balance of benefits for your mind, body, and soul. We updated their entire brand identity and user experience to reflect this new direction, from the soothing earth-tone color palette, to the approachable brand voice and imagery, to the new frictionless mobile-friendly website.”– Damin Sterling, BLVR Creative Director
By carving out a disruptive new space within a sea of competitors, ISLE was able to stand out from the crowd and have BLVR recognized by GDUSA’s Health and Wellness Design Awards for best brand identity and best packaging design.
