As Indians, we 'get' Indian food – but how do you communicate to an outsider for whom it starts and ends with Chicken Tikka Masala? Exotic, yet dated and highly inaccessible, Kitchens of India struggled to make a mark in the US. Icarus created a look that was iconic, royal and recognizably Indian, reinforcing the brand promise of recipes from royal kitchens. A vibrant colour palette traded in the dated look for a modern Indian one and eased navigation through a complex range. These, combined with a home-like, accessible food visualization lent the brand both a sense of romance and everyday accessibility that it previously lacked – allowing it to reach out to a much wider audience.
