The newly introduced packaging and logo blend a playful, energetic, and unexpected aesthetic with a fresh, upscale finish. This combination not only reflects a premium and distinct look but also captures unbuzzd's unique personality, resonating with a diverse audience ranging from college students to working professionals, and even those golfers who are mindful of family commitments.

The design features a vibrant green and yellow color scheme that hints at the beverage's "clear-eyed citrus" flavor, appealing to a broad demographic of drinkers. The fluid and fun logo is designed to connect with consumers on a deeper level, striking a refreshing balance between enjoyment and responsibility.

John Duffy, CEO of Celly Nutrition, expressed his excitement about the new branding, stating, "At unbuzzd, we view branding as a crucial element in connecting with our consumers. It goes beyond visual identity; it's about making a meaningful impact. Our design encapsulates this philosophy by merging fun with sophistication, proving that serious products can be both enjoyable and engaging."

Eric Rojas, Founder of Six+One, elaborated on the design choices, "We chose a deep natural green and a sunny yellow to reflect the vibrant, citrusy essence of the drink. It's crucial for us to find the overlap of fun and science, ensuring the brand remains accessible yet distinctive."

The design extends to all packaging formats, including a 12 oz slim can, powder sticks, and outer pouch packaging.
