Joyus' old logo and branding were targeted towards older women, which limited its customer base. The site took several clicks for viewers to access video pages and the traditional ecommerce navigation required a lot of reading and comprehension.
The first task was to update the Joyus logo to a neutral gold tone, which elevated the brand and allowed for an immediate update for the site transition. Other brand refreshes included updated typographic system and updated color palette, which were implemented across the site and all videos.
Next, the product detail page design was updated to make viewing and shopping easier.
An identity for the new umbrella site, Tique (a shortening of 'boutique') was created to be harmonious with the new Joyus brand yet be neutral so it could work for many different future channels. The logo was a subtle reference to a replay button.
