Marlish Water

Marlish Water

How do you introduce a range of tonics and mixers into a highly competitive market?

Marlish Water is an independent brand located in Northumberland that distributes still and sparkling water to high-end establishments. Following a regional tender, JUMP was commissioned to create a new brand family for their launch of tonics and mixers, which would combine their water with natural dry flavourings and champagne-like bubbles.

What makes Marlish one of a kind?

We knew that we had to find out what makes Marlish different from the competitors, and after a trip to the natural spring, it became clear this was not just another tonic or mixer. The 150-year process through unique rock and mineral strata in its exact location, alongside the individually added, all-natural ingredients, is what gives it a distinctive taste and exceptional quality.

To showcase this unique selling point, we created hand-drawn illustrations of the prehistoric carboniferous rock. This marks Marlish geographically, offering a simplistic yet striking look that is well-suited to its target audience. We then used a tasteful palette of colour-coded backgrounds to differentiate the flavours as well as to make them stand out on any shelf. This is now being rolled out to the existing waters as well as a new and exclusive range of flavoured waters.
