Last year Creambell had undergone brand renovation and came up with a new identity to be seen as a modern, youthful and contemporary brand. This was not a mere change of brand identity but a coming of age for Creambell, a transformation that the company is engineering to take it to the next level. The new identity carries forward our core values on which our brand is built – innovation, quality, trust, and at the same time addresses the latent need of the consumer for simplicity. In the age of plenty, simpler experiences are being valued.
The new logo of Creambell while it brings in the new dimension of simplicity and symbolizes fun, playfulness – at the same time has retained its core element. The existing colour blue remains, though on brighter tone which enunciate a fresher tonality more appropriate for food category. Bell too has been retained however it has been reduced to a single element and has a tilt to it to represent the playfulness
