36 Comical Branding Techniques

From Hair-Raising Treat Branding to Punny Holiday Brews

— July 13, 2013 — Marketing
When it comes to packaging a product to sell, creating a design that will instantly capture a consumer's eye is key, which is why these comical branding techniques are some great examples of how marketers are utilizing humor to stand out.

While some retail brands choose to market their products with sleek designs and clear-cut logos, these comical branding techniques are more about making people laugh with their uses of adorable imagery and out-of-the-ordinary themes. What better way to stand out from the competition than by showcasing designs that feature references to pop culture phrases or shapes that aren't ordinarily associated with food or drinks?

From fascinating facial hair branding to satirical hair product labels, these comical branding techniques are certainly providing consumers with something both visually and intellectually stimulating to remember.
