Make it appeal to professionals
(with assistant projector)
In order to make Prismacolor brand appeal to current art professionals, Prismacolor should redesign its product line, rethink its point of sale, and redefine its systemic brand experiences from all perspectives.
In the journey to future, Prismacolor can create an online education platform to connect artistic influencers and learners. Also, the smart projector synchronizes with video tutorials and projects step-by-step instruction on paper.
In future, utilizing big-data collected from the education platform, Prismacolor has the advantages to develop an AI-powered drawing software to let people draw fast and creatively.
Childish round body shape doesn't appeal to professionals, difficult to catch color code
on flat caps, can not be refilled while competitor's do, non-user-friendly point of sale.
Also, professionals usually create color palettes for art works, but Prismacolor's existing
color system doesn't assist with that.
NEW BRAND LANDUAUGE
"To help professionals achieve" is always Prismacolor's brand focus. Discard childish round body shape as well as paper label and bring in a new rounded-rectangle body shape with pure color design, which not only inspire professionals' creativity through its non-distracting pureness, but also allow professionals to control the line-weight with confidence by rotating the marker body precisely and stably.
NEW BRAND LANDUAUGE
Uniforming the design language for markers and pencils,
solved a long-term problem for Prismacolor.
Let buyers get a visual understanding of what values can be drawn from the color palette.
Use a reusable plastic case to let people carry around for daily use.
