Pentawards 2019 Silver Award

At EVERLAND, we help established brands thrive on street level and up-coming brands expand their foothold. Our work with the former helps us advise the latter, and vice versa.

We worked with the new Danish beverage brand Syngja, to launch a new sub-category. As the world’s only manufacturer of cricket-enriched shots and juices, this isn’t your regular thirst quencher. It’s complex, peculiar, inspired, and idealistic and then Syngja has that subtle taste of umami that isn’t normally associated with juice. But then again, Syngja is anything but normal.

Our design for Syngja has found inspiration in the symmetric anatomy of insects. With no sub-category to tap into, we also looked to create a new beverage style altogether. A visual universe that doesn’t look like juice necessarily yet conveys the organic complexity, vitality and unexpectedness of Syngja. 99% normal juice and 100% original design.

The design won a silver award at Pentawards 2019.

“Syngja is special. Special in the most positive sense, that is. We have tried to find the right balance between juice and crickets to underline the particularity, yet still, make it accessible. It’s always great fun working with such a courageous team as the Syngja guys and defining a brand new sub-category.”
