    Overarching Trends 5

  • 6 Overarching Trends

    FOOD CONSUMPTIONAccording to Euromonitor (2011), towards various consumer trends in Singapore, kiosks rank second in terms of eating expenditure outside of home, which is second to hawker centers. Home deliveries and take-away grew by 94% in 2009, and consumers,

    especially those in double-income households do not have time to cook, reflecting a strong demand for convenience. Also, the purpose of eating out is primarily an engagement in social activities, as social activities are limited in Singapore. Singaporeans have a stronger tendency to be patient enough to queue if the store is considered popular.

    CONSUMER ATTRACTIONSingaporean consumers are increasingly opting for healthier snack rather than fried food snacks due to exposure to health-consciousness, as stated in Euromonitor (2011). However, consumers are increasingly attracted to premium kiosks that offer western cuisine such as British fish and chips, as these outlets had a sophisticated palate. As explained in Euromonitor (2011), these stores also utillised technology and machinery to increase effectiveness and efficiency as well as

    modernise their image; Singaporeans are also more attracted to open-kitchen concepts that utillise this technologies. Finally, Euromonitor (2011) states that consumers are drawn towards novelty and will attribute to short-term success.

    ADVERTISINGThe usage in wordmark varies through all examples. Example 3 does not have the tagline and Example 4 does not even have the wordmark implemented.

    While using the beverage with the core ingredients at the side may seem to be the visual strategy, Example 1 and Example 3 throws it off. Example 1 uses the presence of a spoon and other graphics and Example 3 uses the presence of a boy with an extraction of the beans respectively is extremely different form.

    Though green may be in every advertisement, there is a lack of clarity as to which green is used.

    The Header and body copy typeface is different throughout all examples, and the overall grid system and devices are always different.

    Example 5 shows that other type of advertising have no Jollibean graphic language in it.

    Finally, the last example below, the makeshift kiosk is of a different graphic language as the stores or its advertising.

    WEBSITEThe website features inconsistent use of typefaces and the natural image is shaken when an image with a spoonful of milk powder is seen on the about us page of the corporate website (2005). The website is done up messily with improper html slicing that would decrease creditability as even the copyright area is an .jpeg; consumers would have a hard time believing that this was an actual brand if they had never seen it before.

    Mr Bean is ranked at the top as at any given store it has the most variety and it is found in institutions and hospitals, which makes it more credible.
