    The directives were to evolve the brand, taking it from a family-run garment brand to a professionally-run, pan-India fashion retail chain.

    It needed to tune its personality to a contemporary and youthful feel while being classic and timeless.

    Apparatus worked with a research team to understand brand perceptions as they stand today and re-define the target group, identifying the emotional drivers that make up the Cottonworld mindset.

    The first step was to re-design the brand identifier, develop a new tagline, and design advertising that was in synch.

    The brand identity was extended to the storefront signage, point of sale, visual merchandising, packaging and advertising.
