Lancome The Sweet Smell Of Success

The brief was to design a cardboard tray that could be worn by the Lancôme consultants in store so that they could offer free samples of a new product in small dramming bottles.
Designing a cardboard tray in itself was not a challenge, but Lancôme is a luxury brand so the tray had to have a luxury finish. It also had to be practical for wearing in store all day meant that we had to focus on a number of key points. Materials needed to be strong, lightweight and have a premium finish. We also came up with a bespoke strapping system so each tray provided maximum comfort and adjustability.
“The dramming trays provided a great aid in getting as many women as possible to sample Lancôme’s new foundation; Teint Idole Ultra 24H. The trays gave the Lancôme consultants the opportunity to move away from counter in order to proactively seek out customers. Due to the trays being so practical in their design, the consultants were able to maintain their high quality of service, despite being ‘on the move’, allowing Lancôme to stand out from competitor brands concurrently launching new foundations.” Antonia Parsons, Marketing Manager Lancôme Cosmetics.
