Collection: Pure & Clean
Brand names take on a pre-eminent role in communicating to potential consumers something of value about a company. As is the case with the majority of products on the market, many brands of e-cigarettes (e-cigs) are named in order to send particular messages to consumers.
Many brands of e-cig companies use variations of the word “Pure” in their ad brand names (e.g. Pure, Pure Smoke, Clean Smoke, Purity, and Puro). The choice of the brand names also extends to these companies' efforts to ease any health concerns of worried smokers. In this case it is clear that the brand name is intended to convey to potential users that the product is pure and therefore healthy and safe to use.
The color palette of the e-cig box as well as the ad is also used to communicate a message to consumers. Consumer perception studies have shown that consumers understand lighter colors such as white, silver or light blue on cigarette packs to signify safer cigarettes. Similarly, the blue color palette is often used to signify freshness and purity.
E-cig companies frequently use positive imagery and slogans that shift the attention away from the negatives of smoking. For example, an ad for Pure Smokeless contains the image of a wave of water accompanied by the following text, “smooth tasting vapor cigarettes.” The ad is intended to convey to consumers that the product is as safe as water. By advertising their product as “pure” and “containing no additives,” these brands are positioning themselves as a “healthy” alternative.
