“Craft beer is riding the crest of a wave, and as microbreweries gain in popularity, brand identities are getting more expressive and creative. Robot Food’s identity for new microbrewery, Vocation, is as daring as the beer it crafts.
John Hickling brews beer with distinctive, punchy flavour. Each hop forward beer stands out from the norm and names such as ‘Heart & Soul’ and ‘Divide & Conquer’ fly the flag for the brewery’s fearless attitude. Vocation’s beers are bold, brave and uncompromising and like beer, like brewer, they all epitomise Hickling’s passion for his trade. John originally left his job in a bank, sold his house and set up his first brewery, Blue Monkey. After selling up to explore new ventures John realised he only had one vocation. He’s now back where he belongs, brewing the types of beer he wants to drink.”

“As part of an entire portfolio rebrand, St. Bernadine was asked to help create a new look for Lighthouse Brewing Co.’s “Explorer Series” family of craft beers. Lighthouse Brewing’s Explorer Series is a family of craft beers brewed for those looking for a little more in their beers; more hop, more malt, more character.
This inspired a design system that was created to reflect the layers and complexity of the beers, while still honouring the hand crafted nature of the brews and remaining true to the brand’s nautical positioning. For launch, the family included Shipwreck IPA, Tasman Pale Ale, and Seaport Vanilla Stout.”

“NoMad Playing Cards from theory11 were produced in collaboration with The NoMad Hotel in New York City. In the 19th century, The NoMad District of New York was the meeting place of the era’s elite – from Oscar Wilde to Charles Dickens, Mark Twain to Nikola Tesla. Our vision was to create a deck of cards that would serve as a monument to The NoMad. The result is a timeless blend of beauty and elegance.”

“Our role was to create the brand tone of voice and from that devise the package design for a new-to-market ready-to-drink milkshake, Gulp. We’ve made a bespoke wrapping for each of the vanilla, chocolate, strawberry and banana flavours.
Gulp isn’t just a name; it’s an attitude. It’s a way of behaving. The design is born from the fact that milkshakes need be to shaken to be enjoyed to the max. The typography literally shakes things up expressing Gulp’s cheery personality. The stripes running through the design bring to life the stages at which you should enjoy the drink to full effect – in big, bold gulps.”

“The briefing: DUO brand identity needs to be revised in order to update its worldwide look for new target audiences, better codify relevant communication and refresh its market presence.
The target consumer: Existing consumers of all ages and sexes as well as new audiences of younger people, web natives and design conscious buyers.
The design: To respond to our clients request we had to review the new languages of communication based on emoticons, shortcuts, symbols and condensed messages and imagine an original, codified, contemporary idiom legible by all and adaptable to all national markets, respective cultures and particular religious or social sensitivities. The DUO logo has been cleared from the oblong form around it so that the logo is better integrated within the packaging surface, and emphasis is redirected on the circle, one of the most essential, primordial forms, and also the characteristic plan – view of a condom. To address the multiple variations of DUO condoms, mousegraphics developed the playful, sensual lexicon of a “DUO – coded” language. This DUO vernacular emerges, color-coded in vibrant tones on stark black surfaces. Circle based, symbolically abstracted design and outlines reference fruits (as in the flavoured variety), languid time (as in the retarding variety), machine joints (as in G-pleasure) etc.”

“In the years of Prohibition, Moonshiners used fruit juice to sweeten their raw, illicit booze before transporting it in used spirit bottles. Inspired by these lawless rebels, independent drinks company Halewood International created Bootlegger Apple Brew – an old fashioned apple beer that’s flavoured with White Grain Spirit.
The packaging is inspired by American Prohibition and vintage drink labels and has a raw, hand made feel, featuring simple black typography on an old paper background. The variant is communicated using a green stamp which adds a pop of colour and reflects the apple flavour. A 330ml stubby bottle was chosen to give the brand a point of difference from the rest of the spirit beer category and reflects the uniquely distinctive liquid.
To complete the look the bottle features a red, white and blue crown inspired by the anti Prohibition badges of the era.”

“Salvador are roasters of fine imported coffee beans from around the world. Their high-grade roasts have long been prized amongst Sydney’s inner city crowd, however their previous branding had failed to attract new wholesale clients.
Marcio the owner of Salvador is a friendly expressive and very Brazilian character. He meticulously crafts each roast to perfect its own unique character and flavour, with a reputation among his peers in the trade for his artisan approach to roasting. With this hands on style, he retains the romantic Brazilian flair learnt from his grandfather Quintana Salvador, his inspiration for the brand.
Co Partnership have brought new life to the brand, strengthening its brand story with a confident authentic look to capture the wonderful brand story. The core logo design works in harmony with the different roast labels and on its own to provide a strong stand alone identity for everything from signage to merchandise.”

“Owen + Alchemy is a small ‘juice apothecary’ in Chicago’s Logan Square neighborhood, a very trendy and flourishing part of town. The owner, Anne Owen, has a background in fashion publications in Miami and wanted to bring that simple, stark and fashion-forward look to her juice bar. Her name, paired with the alchemic approach of their juice and food concoctions led us to create this brand inspired by old alchemic symbology, with a modern twist.”
