A radically new look that reflects a new self-image.
As the result of a strategic reorientation, Europe's leading beauty retailer no longer wants to be perceived only as a distributor of major cosmetic labels, but wants to distinguish itself as a strong brand. This step required a visual new beginning that radically breaks with the look that has been established for over fifty years. We gave Douglas a new appearance: Contemporary, but not fashionable. Clear, but at the same time strong in character thanks to its striking details. A new start that self-confidently positions Douglas as a brand and no longer just as a reseller.
