Helping you move faster than your competitors
A brand offering best quality ingredients and ready to eat items for the urban Indian cook to help make his/her cooking and culinary experience more enjoyable.
Giving a facelift to the ITC Masterchef marketing website.
ITC Masterchef is the Food & Beverage department of ITC Limted, one of India's foremost private sector companies. ITC has a diversified presence in FMCG, Hotels, Packaging, Paperboards & Specialty Papers and Agri-Business.
ITC Masterchef product offerings include Frozen Prawns, Spices, Frozen Snacks, Dehydrated Onions, Mango Pulp and others.
We were tasked with creating a marketing website that shows these products in the best light and promotes the story behind them.
Every ITC MC Product existed as its own brand with its own packaging style, colours and identity. However there was a parent ITC Brand Identity that ties all the children products within itself.
We wanted to juxtapose the uniqueness of the individual brands as well retain the cohesiveness with the parent ITC brand in our designs.
Hence, we retained the fonts from the parent brand guidelines and used every product's distinct colors in their respective pages.
Provided it was an informational website, the site architecture
had to be simple, clear, to facilitate smooth navigation and easy
discovery of product information to the site visitors.
We introduced two navigations: single layer site navigation and a product page-level navigation. The former to switch between the website's pages, including various product pages while the latter facilitating in product sections navigation. The second navigation discloses progressively once the user navigates to the respective product page.
The design choices for visual design stemmed out from the
concept of portraying the individual products in their distinctive
style, provided they had their unique branding and packaging.
The feeling of uniformity and cohesiveness was to be retained,
as all the products belong to ITC Masterchef and the larger ITC
The four products that we created pages for were Frozen Snacks, Frozen Prawns, Dehydrated Onion, and Mango Pulp. Apart from these, there was a contact page, designed to facilitate order enquires.
ITC had a brand font Trajan Pro and we were to abide by their brand guidelines to make use of this font for our designs. We did a pretty good job of using this in a good way coupling it with our imagery focused design.
The ITC Homepage is packaged with single captivating imagery coupled along with the idea of making tasty food an easy job. It has a clear navigation route to different product pages.
Snacks had distinctive darks & contrasting pop colors in the packaging. We used the same to design the Snacks page. Creative food shots were the key ingredients of the page.
The packaging of prawns had hints of light yellow and prime focus on the images of prawns itself. We translated this philosophy even to the designs of the prawns' page.
It made sense to depict the Mango page in a way actual Mangoes look. We incorporated interesting image shots of mangoes and accent of yellows to make it look drool-worthy.
We used texture in the background, to subtly reminiscent the onion flakes. The rest of the page is composed of creatively shot onions and dishes that can be made using the product.
Pro Creators were very communicative and had a thought process behind their design. Our brand guidelines seemed to constrain them in few ways at times. Despite that, they were able to deliver the project successfully. There were few challenging times but the team at ProCreator was always ready to listen, propose necessary solutions and move things forward.
