what happens when good friends come together to brand a small business?? MAGIC! take a look at the brand + collateral items created for this small (but mighty) liquor store in bantam, connecticut…..
random, quick question: do you call it a “liquor” store? or a “package” store?? or something else? i grew up with “package store” but never really understood the meaning of that……okay, on to the good stuff!
it all started with a rooster………….
my friend suzanne came to me with a request to do the branding for the liquor store she + her husband were purchasing. BUT there were a couple of caveats….
- the name had to remain the same;
- we had to use a rooster in the logo.
quick backstory: bantam, connecticut is a borough of litchfield county and established sometime around 1940. a tiny town but jam packed with culture, quaint-ness in abundance and named for the bantam rooster.
so back to the branding………..her vibe? think “joanna gaines” meets “cracker barrel”. rustic but not over the top. after a quick face-to-face consultation, we had everything nailed down. i love it when a client and i just “click”.
and just like that, we’ve got business cards (with a QR code – love that!!), stamps, hoodies, tshirts, gift cards, koozies……and i can’t wait to show you the outdoor signage when it’s complete!!
working on this brand was soooo much fun! if you’re local to the area, stop by in person:
