Keeping it environmentally friendly

Piobox Trading assisted by PPC Cement retain an environmentally-friendly focus with regards to its branding.

The cement producer wanted new branded coffee mugs for giveaways. The brief (in summary) was that the mugs had to reflect the company’s logo, depict the industry the company specialised in and be eco-friendly.

“We developed different shades to best depict cement,” says Alan Pio, Piobox founder and owner, “and worked on styles of mugs best suited to PPC’s brand. This included, among others, the mug size, the logo and materials.”
