INSPIRATION & CONCEPT
Super Bean philosophy is based in bring something more than soy based-food and drink to the customers, it's about bringing a nice experience to the people, where optimism and happiness are all around the store.
At the beginning, the company created a superhero mascot based on the shape of the main food and beverage ingredient of their products, the soybean. This super soybean character will be the one who bring (visually) happiness and optimism to the store customers.
The client asked to recreate their bean-shaped mascot, but in this new branding phase, the idea was to create a visually high-ended character with a group of concept inside: charisma, friendship and happiness. This special superhero is not about a rough and powerful hero but a sweet and friendly one.
