Beautiful You was a free, impartial beauty service from Boots that built on their years of research and experience. Through a combination of personal consultation and unbiased recommendations, Beautiful You helped Boots customers understand their skin’s unique needs and find products that suited them perfectly, taking the guesswork out of buying beauty products.

Every detail considered

Boots position themselves as “feel good specialists”, always on the lookout for ways to help people feel healthier and happier. Our mission was to create a brand for Beautiful You that satisfied these goals, appealing to a younger, beauty-conscious audience without alienating Boots’ wider customer base, ultimately generating greater footfall in Boots stores.

We commissioned world-renowned lettering artist Alison Carmichael to craft a bespoke handwritten logo under our direction – flowing, textural and sealed with a kiss

All the pieces fit

Our design team worked with Boots to create a modular design system featuring contemporary lifestyle and product imagery, as well as producing a set of brand guidelines that enable other Boots partner agencies to create stunning on-brand experiences with ease.

In-store conversion rates soared to 70% of customers using the service to purchase goods.

Premium for the people

The Beautiful You identity was successfully applied to in-store branding, skin diagnostic tools, websites and advertising, before being rolled-out in selected Boots stores across the UK. The aim was nothing less than to revolutionise the sale of Boots beauty products both instore and online, confirming Cubic’s credentials as health and beauty identity specialists in the process.
