Preethi Design Strategy
Design language and product strategy for Philips' sister brand
'Preethi' one of the leading South Indian kitchen appliance brand was taken over by Philips to consolidate their business presence in the southern part of the country. However, because it also played in the same appliance sector as Philips, it was imperative for Preethi to have its own unique design language and product positioning so that it does not cannibalize into the share of both the brands. As a team, we helped Preethi get its own design identity inspired by the unique culture and preference of people in Southern India.
