Seven Mile Brewing Co - Wildling Ginger Beer
Brand Strategy, Product Branding & Packaging
Barefruit were ecstatic to be awarded the brief to develop the branding (from naming straight through to production) for Seven Mile Brewing Co.’s most recent creation – a fresh and zingy Ginger Beer. The project kicked off early January 2021 and went through the full creative process to arrive at a playful, artistic, and very distinctive result – Wildling Hard Ginger Beer.
Seven Mile Brewing Co., wanted a brand that appealed primarily to women, but also men who seek out beer alternatives, and those who love a cocktail (Pro tip: Wildling goes amazingly well with spiced rum and fresh lime, over ice). To capture these key market segments, the brand personality needed to be unique, fun, cheeky and visually catching. At the same time, communicating its USP’s: use of local ingredients, the tangy ginger kick and a subtly, sweet finish
The Barefruit project management team had an excellent opportunity to ‘flex their creative muscles’ for this project with quite a bit of freedom to explore naming and design options. The process took the team on a 7-month journey to conceptualise, design and refine each and every detail of the artwork for the cans and cartons.
Creative Lead Alex Wales says
“We started with concepts and moodboards to present the client with lots of options and completed a full competitive analysis to ensure that the result was going to be distinctive, unique and match the product itself. Once we finalised the artwork, we worked on the details to the cans and cartons until everything was approved and signed off; ready for production.”
