OUR APPROACH

Crafted with character.

PROCESS

In order to gain a deeper understanding into the life of the locals, we hosted interviews for regular Ossett and other craft beer drinkers alike. By doing so, we ultimately defined what Ossett really meant to them and how best to engage with their target market.

BRINGING IT TO LIFE

 We chose to apply a hand crafted illustrative approach to demonstrate Ossett’s philosophy as the core beers took inspiration from Yorkshire icons. The logo was subtly evolved to modernise and aid printability.
