BONAS is a company that specializes in socks that are sold on Chinese online shopping malls such as Taobao and Tmall.
Currently, they are interested in expanding their reach to include Korean products, specifically by adding baby products that are targeted to young parents in their 20s and 30s.
Background & Key Issues
China Sock Brand 'BONAS' Baby Socks Design
Bonas focuses more on their online shopping mall presence rather than offline stores. The products sold range from adult socks to baby clothes, and, although most of their current products bear similar designs to trendy products, it was necessary to develop an independent sock design and concept of socks suitable for Bonas to grow the specialty brand of baby products in the future.
Approach & Solution
Workshop to derive the new sock concept
A total of 10 concepts were developed Each concept has a child-like, imaginative imagery that enhances the baby's relationship with the parent by giving the parent a story telling device during the time the socks are being worn.
