    Shifting & Shaping Tastebuds

    For many people, our pets occupy a special space that oscillates somewhere between animal and person. So, it makes sense when feeding our pets, to want to choose pet food that represents the values we look for in our own food. More natural, more true, but also backed by science. Having always been firmly anchored in the science space, Advance was getting left behind.

    With the shift in the pet care category toward more humanistic food and ingredients, along with the disruption from new boutique brands in pet care, it was important to reignite Advances’ pioneering spirit and leadership in the pet care category.

    The new design launched in early 2021 and used shape and hyper realistic illustrations on the packaging to create a shift in the visual language. The blue of the packaging being just like our flag, is authoritative, but subtly reflects genuine and grounded values through every layer of the brand.

    And in softening the aggressively scientific narrative, people could see reflections of their own pets woven into the story, creating connection and meaning. Recalibrating the focus of Advance being driven by Australian science and made here at home in the Central Tablelands of NSW, delivers a sense of optimism and pride and commands an assurance that Advance, a leader in pet care and nutrition has the best interests of Australian pets at its heart.
