02设计说明 | Design Notes
NINO is a visualization of the spiritual core of the tender bird brand: energetic, tolerant and future-oriented. In designing, we took into consideration the performance of the tender bird brand culture and the cooperation between tender bird and other brands, so as to determine a targeted direction. Of course, NINO can be applied to the IP co-branding of multiple corporate cooperations. With the trend of adjustment, NINO makes use of 3D characters and planes to extend the shape in order to better cater to brand cooperation.
视觉识别标志 | Visual identity
03形象绘制 | Image Drawing
In the previous design, we considered the brand culture, we positioned IP as a derivable product, and we drew a variety of forms of IP images, and selected more distinctive and highly-recognized manuscripts to deepen them. The simple body is easy to fuse, and local feature points are used for recognition. The design of the mascot's characteristic points is very important. Although the mascot has a large area of white space, we designed a convex corner on its head, with huge eyes, a small mouth, and some small elements. Through these alien designs and contrast relationships to enhance resolution.
04最终设计 | Final design
NINO is a cold bird with a fiery heart. He is curious about new things, and likes to stare at his big eyes to find anything he is interested in. Regardless of gender, age, or region, as long as you are hopeful for the future, as long as you are ready to show your talents, NINO will appear by your side, giving you strength and letting the world hear your voice.
PACKAGING AND DERIVATIVE DESIGNS
05徽章设计 | Badge design
In addition to considering the use of 3D in the creation of images, we also need to consider its expansion in graphic design and brand communication. We have designed a mascot graphic visual system that can be used in brand publicity to enhance the brand's influence.
06主题贺卡 | Final design
We designed three different forms according to the original shape of the mascot, and gave each of them three different blessings, namely: auspicious luck, rich financial resources, and great luck, thus extending the Chinese New Year greeting card, the size is standard size: 144.5MM × 211.5mm.
07联名衍生| Joint Derivative
最后，我们尝试了IP联合品牌扩展。 NINO的形象可以是跨界合作和跨类别合作。 我们将扮演NINO角色扮演，并尝试与知名的超级英雄相匹配，以使NINO成为一种超文化形象。 具有温度个性属性的文化形象将品牌符号“ NINO×fashion”融入了一种强烈的出口文化中，形成了亚文化群体在年轻人中的传播和传播。 通过建立这样的超级符号，NINO不再只是嫩鸟品牌的吉祥物，而是延伸到更深，更广泛的类别。
Finally, we tried the IP co-branding extension. NINO's image can be cross-border cooperation and cross-category cooperation. We will play NINO role-playing and try to match the well-known superheroes to make NINO a super-cultural image. A cultural image with the personality attribute of temperature integrates the brand symbol “NINO×fashion” into a strong culture for export, forming a spread and spread of subculture communities among young people. Through the establishment of such a super symbol, NINO is no longer just a mascot of the tender bird brand, but extends to a deeper and broader category.
08包装设计与运用 | Packaging Design and Application
At the same time, exclusive bags and packaging boxes were designed for the mascots, mainly based on black. The pattern printing design was selected for design. The IP image was linearized and used in conjunction with the badge to more effectively show the professional brand characteristics.
