Phocus – naturally energizing sparkling water – has launched in the US market and is available to purchase now on amazon. Phocus is the latest in a long line of ground-breaking new product developments the Cartils team have worked on and are more than a little excited to watch this unique brand grow from strength to strength.

As the health and wellbeing trend continues to evolve yet further within the beverage industry, new emerging brands infiltrating the space are the ones to watch, using product innovation and packaging design to raise the bar. Phocus is one such brand, combining smooth release tea caffeine and only natural flavours to result in the ultimate healthy refreshment. Harnessing the synergy of nature and science, this premium water offers unparalleled, zero-calorie hydration and is set to be a game changer.

With a wealth of research and refinement behind the product itself, the design team at Cartils had to tell a very unique, nuanced brand story: one which blended science with the emotionally evocative. Achieving just the right look and feel required the niche experience and expertise of an established beverage branding agency.

Cartils Creative Director Neil Vestrini said:
“The value proposition of Phocus is clear: the best of nature made better by science. By incorporating themes such as ‘nature’s laboratory’ and graphic elements with botanical hand drawings, we’ve established a visual language befitting of what Phocus both is and what it does.”

Phocus owner Tom O’Grady said:
“Phocus is more than simply a flavoured beverage – it’s a premium water engineered to help you perform as you hydrate. We needed a brand identity and packaging design that conveyed that and we’re delighted that in collaborating with Cartils, that’s what we achieved.”

Phocus is available in Grapefruit, Cucumber, Blood Orange, Yuzu & Lime and Natural flavours.
