ChillMeister

Insulated Can Coolers

ChillMeister is a multi-purpose insulated drink cooler and tumbler developed for sale at major convenience store retailers such as 7-Eleven. For this product, I had the opportunity to develop the brand identity and product design from the ground up. 

 

With the purpose of keeping drinks cool in mind, the design revolved around the concept of a rugged climber braving an unforgiving wintery tundra. By including bold muted colors and a distressed aesthetic, this product was targeted primarily towards the young adult males that these retailers cater to.

The Drink Cooler

There were multiple iterations for the exterior shell of the tumbler. A simplified form factor that emphasized better ergonomics in the hand was chosen for the final mold.

The ChillMeister Brand

To reflect the targeted audience, a muted color palette and masculine typeface was used for the final logo design. The logo icon is a combination of the “CM” acronym for ChillMeister and represents the mountainous imagery from the initial concept.

Package Design

A vertical box with an open front window was chosen for the final packaging. This allowed customers to easily view the product without the need to open the packaging. Textures and expressive paint strokes gave the overall design a modern rugged aesthetic.
