Hulsbosch has completed a brand and packaging refresh for Kimberly-Clark Australia’s period care U by Kotex brand.

The U by Kotex brand was the first to bring meaningful packaging innovation to the category and is the leader in period care products in Australia. Since U by Kotex’s last brand and packaging refresh in 2016 there has been significant changes and ‘better for the planet’ advances in the category.

A fresh new look by Hulsbosch has been released instore and online, across the entire U by Kotex portfolio bringing a bold, modern design into market that elevates the brand to standout from competitors and in the category, and appeals to a younger audience (16-25-year-olds).

Mikey Hart, creative director at Hulsbosch said, “U by Kotex has always been a big selling brand that resonated with consumers. However, it was time to start an exciting next phase in U by Kotex’s brand evolution to re-establish the brand and bring a new energy to the packaging portfolio.

“We have revitalised all U by Kotex’s assets and developed a more dynamic expression of the iconic products. The range is renowned for being bold, brave and cutting-edge and the result is eye-catching packaging with a personality for each product that speaks to Gen Z’s.”

The U by Kotex packs by Hulsbosch features a reframed ‘U’ logo for a prominent on-pack presence and delivers maximum value for its definition and as a symbol to be noticed. For six brand variants, larger name callouts and new decorative illustrations provide clearer navigation across the range.

With a well-defined heritage, U by Kotex has several recognisable and distinctive visual brand shortcuts, black packaging and multi-coloured ‘rainbow’ wrappers which are key design elements retained and produced with a simplicity and consistency to enhance preference and support for the range.

Elise Smith, senior brand manager at Kimberly-Clark said, “What we love about the Hulsbosch creative work for U by Kotex is its ability to continue a dialogue with Gen Zs in a fun and friendly way so that our products are accessible, reiterating that we are a brand they can trust.

“The expert team at Hulsbosch have extensive brand and design knowledge and enormous amounts of enthusiasm which has brought about a transformation for the U by Kotex range.”

The U by Kotex brand and product range packaging executions have been updated for each product in the range including Pads, Liners and Tampons and for the preferred format and absorbency level sub-brands including Core, Sport, Overnights, Designer, Maternity and Petites.

The outer polybags now contain 30 per cent recycled plastic content, a key step in Kimberly-Clark’s ambition to safeguard natural systems and reduce their environmental footprint.
