Bringing Colour to TV

By Jeremy Davies

Redesigned Freesat Packaging

Increasing Freesat's Instore Impact.

One of our favourite projects this year has been our work with Freesat, the subscription-free satellite TV service competing with satellite giants Virgin, Sky and BT.  Echo was appointed to help maximise the brand’s effectiveness at point of purchase, communicate core benefits and bring to life Freesat’s personality and entertainment credentials.

Jennifer Elworthy, Marketing Director of Freesat, commented:  

“Freesat challenged Echo to simplify and elevate our product offering, helping us to stand out in a busy retail space. The end result is testament to Echo’s in depth knowledge of consumers and their ability to take a complicated offering and use design to convey it in a simple, digestible way."

Building on the recent brand refresh, the packaging and point of sale design features a new navigation system to communicate key properties and help consumer understanding. The colourful and clean design injects excitement and personality to an often confusing and overly technical retail space.
