Yum’mix is a brand that DesignRepublic created from scratch for serial entrepreneur Bernard, who has been active in the healthy, no gluten, foodspace since many years. Bernard approached us with his idea of a very easy instant mix for veggie burgers. These mixes are vegan, gluten-free and high in protein: just add water, shape them and cook them: easy as that. They come in three flavors: Classic, Italian and Tex-Mex.

DesignRepublic was asked to come up with a name, a brand strategy and positioning, and an appealing packaging design. The challenge was that this product was quite new and it was not very clear where to put it on the shelves: in the gluten-free range? next to the instant noodles? closer to the falafels as the way of preparing is quite similar?

So first the name: for this type of new product we like a name that is more or less self-explanatory: Yum’mix, stands for a yummy mix: mix the product with some water and the result is a delicious burger! There should not be more to it: it is easy, just like the product.

As this product is pretty new and unknown in its range we decided to position it as very accessible and appealing: a design that shows the product in all its glory: a tasty, juicy burger on a delicious bun. At the same time, on the back of the pack, we created an explanatory picto’s that shows how to prepare and use the product: pour, mix and cook: ready in 10 minutes!

In the supermarket, you find this product on the shelves next to the instant soups and the miraculous pasta: the ideal place on the shelf for this type of product.
