鬥陣 means together in Taiwanese, which shares the same meaning as “Hoolaboo”. Hoolaboo as a brand represents togetherness and the urge to fight through hardships together with support from friends and family.
Hoolaboo is a fillet wine cocktail mixed with beer and additional flavors. Fillet wine is a traditional drink from Taiwan. It is a drink for friends and family gatherings.
The world mark is inspired by the use of circles, like the character, Hoolaboo. The roundness of the typeface gives a contrast to the outline and angled characteristic with the Chinese title 鬥陣. The different height of the horizontal stroke in letter H and 0 makes the word mark dynamic. It also complements the Chinese characters.
The sharp angle shape of the typeface carries the tradition of old Chinese character, yet keeping a modern look with the geometric and straightness of the type. The experimental proportion per radical breaks the traditional and typical feel of the Chinese character and brings a rounded and playful character.
Komu A is used as a supporting typeface on the bottle in order to give a visual contrast to the custom logo.
The color palette is based on the color of the alcohol drink. There are three flavors, original flavor, winter melon, and passion fruit. Yellow for original, green for winter melon and purple for passion fruit. All of these cocktail drinks are suitable for the summer season.
The bottle will be made out of pottery, which is made of natural mineral clay buried underground. It is hard in texture, delicate in roughness, simple and pure in off white color. As an abundant and natural material, clay is sustainable. Humans have used it for centuries for construction purposes. Easy to excavate from the ground, clay requires very little processing once excavated, which is suitable for bottle packaging.
The cap will be made out of starch-based bioplastics. It is a simple bioplastic derived from corn starch. They are often mixed with biodegradable polyesters.
