Lanjarón: iconic purity, repositioned.

Danone Waters Spain wanted to reposition its Lanjarón brand to mass premium through a branding overhaul and new packaging design. Product design of the bottle range effectively delivers brand values by balancing premium aesthetics with production and logistics requirements.

The iconic peak in the Sierra Nevada that served as design inspiration.

The challenge:
premium, by design

Danone, leading the €500m Spanish bottled water market with a 20% share, saw competitors successfully focusing on medical properties, beauty, or wellness. Recentering on Lanjarón's core values should strategically reposition the brand as mass premium.

The concept:
exquisite origin and pureness

From a natural source beneath Pico Veleta in the Sierra Nevada, a Unesco Biosphere Reserve, Lanjarón is renowned for its mountain origin. Concept development focused on transmitting just that - pure mountain spring water. 

The silhouette of Lanjarón‘s signature peak was sculpted into a three-dimensional brand icon. Undisturbed lines transmit transparency and pureness, while a seal emphasizes origin.

Catering formats:
iconic elegance

A single, elegant line defines the volume of the catering bottle - accentuated by the relief of Pico Veleta. The meticulously designed silhouette is optimized for high-volume glass blow-moulding. 

The new formats retain compatibility with existing crate dimensions to facilitate logistics.

Returnable catering format:
origin and heritage

Prominent shoulders and Lanjarón‘s seal convey a sense of proud heritage: a clear, transparent volume rising from the mountain‘s relief effectively transmits brand values. A sturdy layout ensures longevity through filling and shipping cycles.

PET retail format:
uniquely transparent

The retail bottle features a unique clear dome, free of reinforcing grooves - standing out elegantly on the shelf. Careful adjustments optimizing aesthetics and structural resistance allow for production with as little as 21g of PET, in a bid for environmental responsibilty.
