A Year in Rewind–The Best Projects of 2017

For most people, December is a time of reflection–a time to look back and assess this year’s growth, reminisce on noteworthy experiences, and perhaps revisit the resolutions you haven’t bothered to think about since April. For us here at Brand+Aid, we use it as a time to look back on some of the amazing clients and kick-ass projects that have made this year–and every year, for that matter–so special. From new clients to old veterans, we have had the opportunity to partner with brilliant individuals and create some seriously rad branded goods. So, in the spirit of reflection (and fostering future inspiration, who knows), here is a look at some of 2017’s stand-out projects, made in partnership with some epic clients…

PowerBar – Team PowerBar Welcome Kits

For 30 years, PowerBar has been committed to providing athletes with high-quality sports nutrition products. So it’s no surprise that when they decided to put together a team of elite athletes, they wanted to provide them with the highest-quality sports gear.

Enter Brand+Aid. Together, we created a merch kit filled with the best branded apparel and sports accessories on the market–windbreakers, vacuum sealed water bottles, t-shirts, and backpacks. Talk about a warm welcome! To cap it all off, each athlete receive their team swag in a customized box, complete with their name and the PowerBar motto.

The best part?
PowerBar loved the merch (and the box) so much, they asked us to collaborate on a similar packaging project to help launch their new line of plant-based protein bars

Game of Thrones – Comic Con Giveaway

If you’re like us (HBO-obsessed binge-watchers, that is) then this next project needs no introduction. Like many of you, the team here at Brand+Aid has a serious obsession with all things Game of Thrones, so when we got the chance to work with the hit TV series, we totally geeked out. Working alongside GOT, our team aimed to create a Comic Con giveaway that would stoke excitement for the upcoming season and get fans involved in the convention festivities.

Kombrewcha – Launch Party Swag

Our friends over at Kombrewcha are shaking up the drink game, combining two of our favorite things–booze and kombucha–in a glorious union. So, if you haven’t already, meet Kombrewcha – the twisted sister of the beloved health drink and one of this year’s favorite partnerships. In tandem with the company’s creative minds, Brand+Aid helped craft merch for the brew’s launch party that was as unique as the drink itself. From custom cups and stickers, to giant jenga sets, each branded promo helped introduce the brand and generate hype among guests.

Konami – E3 2017 Giveaways

Whether you’re a gaming master or a novice, chances are you’ve heard of Konami. The company is an industry pioneer and has been producing top-selling games for almost 50 years. This
year, Brand+Aid was lucky enough to partner with the gaming powerhouse to create one-of-a-kind promos to celebrate the launch of its new game,
Pro Evolution Soccer 2018. The custom-made controllers, wireless bluetooth headphones, and gift box all featuring the game’s logo helped to generate some serious buzz at the 2017 E3 convention and get fans excited for the PES2018 release.
