Clif Bar Thins

To introduce the new CLIF Bar THINS to the market, we leaned on the legacy and authenticity of the CLIF Bar brand and product catalog. For almost 30 years, CLIF Bar has been making food that is nutritional and sustainable. CLIF has become synonymous with high-quality ingredients that are organic, tasty, and keep their customers fueled and on the move. For this execution, we created a bright and refreshing environment, the extra crispy and extra THIN nature of this new snack.

Development Styleframes
To establish the environment for this new product, we created many... many styleframes :) From the props, textures, surfaces, and ingredients ~ we wanted to embrace the essence of the CLIF brand while making sure we capitalized on the taste appeal of the product and its ingredients.
Pitch Frames
During the pitch stage, our original direction was to put this all-natural product back into its original habitat ~ nature. Set against a vibrant blue sky, the product was lit with crisp late afternoon sun and rendered with extreme closeup angles to best show off its crunchy texture and delicious ingredients. Unfortunately, this was abandoned after settling on the cleaner, simpler white space of the indoor direction.
