Cricsto targets a niche market of recreational cricketers who play organized sports. The sports equipment industry is structured in a manner that, customers usually prefer to buy sports equipment by visiting a store in person to ensure comfort. The leadership at Cricsto wanted to challenge this buying behaviour. To break the status-quo Cricsto comes with an interesting proposition to provide video reviews and personalized consultations to the customer to ensure an informed purchase decision.
The earlier existing identity lacked a clear brand positioning and brand awareness among the target market audience due to an ill-structured brand foundation. Hence, our task was to execute the complete overhaul of the existing identity.
Cricsto: A personalized shopping experience for recreational Cricketers that brings the latest cricketing equipment from the best brands in the world.
‘Cricsto’ combination name with “cricket” and “store”.
The concept is based on a strategy of concrete branding around the sport of cricket to provide an accurate description of the business. The second word is modified to retain the phonetics but without the actual spelling for increased memorability.
