Mumbai: BrandMusiq, a sonic branding agency, has developed a brand new sonic identity for the Himalaya Wellness Company. The agency created the musical logo and the Mogoscape (sonic palette) of the Himalaya brand.
Himalaya’s sonic identity is aimed at connecting with the consumer at a fundamental emotional level and engaging them more deeply with the brand.
Speaking on the campaign, Rajesh Krishnamurthy, Business Director – Consumer Products Division, Himalaya Wellness Company, said, “At Himalaya, we believe that wellness is the real happiness. This brand film reiterates our commitment to creating awareness on the role of wellness for healthy and happy living. Himalaya has pioneered and developed a range of head-to-heel consumer products, reinforcing our vision of Wellness in Every Home, Happiness in Every Heart. The sonic identity beautifully captures and blends the core emotions that the brand evokes; happiness, care, love and a sense of calm and well-being”.
Shedding light on the strategic framework for the sonic identity creation, Dipak Marwah, Director- BrandMusiq said: “BrandMusiq used its proprietary 3-stage process to create the brand’s sonic identity. In the 1st stage – the Brand Discovery process- the Himalaya Client and BrandMusiq zeroed on to a few key strategic brand decisions. One, that it had a strong heritage in Ayurveda and the products were completely natural and pure. Second, that it was research-based, safe and efficacious. And third, it was an innovative and progressive brand, blending the best of tradition and modernity.
It was essential that consumers perceived it as a Caring yet Innovative brand. In terms of emotions, the brand was to convey a sense of happiness, love, peace/calm and feel-good because of the product usage and sensorials. The brand essence was distilled sharply into Wellness equalling Happiness.”
Speaking on the sonic approach for the identity, Rajeev Raja, Founder & Soundsmith, BrandMusiq said, “Basis the strategic framework we used the science of sound and music to evoke the brand’s desired persona and emotions. The composition used a scale which instantly evoked a feeling of caring and wellness. The careful choice of organic instruments such as the acoustic guitar and piano to express the melodic structure and the fusion of western rhythms with the Indian tabla, underlined the brand’s blend of Indian heritage and global quality.”
