Using HP digital printing technologies, each bar was created with a unique design – for a total of 60,000 one-of-a-kind Champions bars. This flexible packaging job was printed digitally on the HP Indigo 20000 digital press.
“This is a truly innovative way to elevate our brand and build stronger consumer connections with engaging collaborations and relevant experiences. It’s been a fantastic collaboration between our internal experts, partners and HP to bring this to life in such an iconic and impactful way,” says Bryony McComb, associate director, Mondelēz International.
The imagery of the campaign has very deep meaning for LFC fans, allowing Cadbury to drive buzz, excitement and relevance. HP Indigo technology was the chosen solution for the campaign. HP SmartStream Designer variable data software was used to design a tailored flexible packaging canvas of Liverpool symbols, phrases and images set in the background of the Liverpool Crest or behind players’ shirts, with all players being represented.
“In today’s age of experience, personalization is driving consumers’ purchase decisions and strengthening brand loyalty. HP Indigo’s unique personalization and customization solutions are enabling brands to engage consumers and create new experiences during times when so many social and business interactions have gone virtual,” explains Haim Levit, general manager, HP Indigo, HP Inc.
Thanks to HP SmartStream Designer and HP PrintOS Composer variable design and variable data printing software, each Cadbury Champions Bar wrapper design is truly unique, created from collective elements that help define the club and create a visual story for the consumer. HP Brands Innovation EMEA tailored the project especially for Mondelēz. This result was achieved as follows:
- Designs: A design pattern correlating to club chants, players, moments in history and other unique LFC details with a total of more than 2,000 design elements.
- Texture: Each element has several textures that are applied to add depth to the design.
- Color: Using digital printing allows for a greater color combinations and patterns.
HP SmartStream Designer has a host of creative tools, such as HP Mosaic, HP Collage and HP Frames, and is an open VDP software that allows users to tailor their own solutions, making any design project possible. For this specific project, a code was created to allow for all the elements.
