Black Yogurt – It’s really black, we mean it.

Born in the darkest and deepest coal caves Black Yogurt made its way to the product shelves and defined a new diary order. It’s not only a very first black yogurt on the Ukrainian market, but also a first yogurt to contain charcoal.

“Charcoalness” — became the main inspiration for this project and a major theme in design. We created an awesome charcoal texture and wrapped the whole packaging with it so that it seems that you are holding a real charcoal piece.

First, our emotional intention was to make the label totally black, but as long as Black Yogurt is a limited edition of Activia — the widest known brand of yogurts in Ukraine, we decided to preserve it’s recognizable green branding.

“We googled if there’s a similar black yogurt anywhere in the world and found nothing. So I think we can assume that we made a label for the first black yogurt in the universe. Well, at least until there’s no proof of extraterrestrial life. But even then there is a chance that aliens have anything alike”. Alisa Mezhenska — Junior Art Director R Agency
