The challenge

The Dulux PaintPod showcases how a customer’s brand experience can be improved with a system approach. Despite a quality product, the appeal of decorating with Dulux is often lost with poor applicators and difficult cleaning.

"Innovation from Cambridge Design Partnership transformed the process to be ‘easy, fast and clean from start to finish.’"
