CASK & CO.
A branding project for bartenders by bartenders. During 2014 we started the remake of a brand that never until now was a brand. Cask & Co or Cask Kompaniet as it was called before the rebrand, was built, run and made awesome by bartenders in Stockholm. They were really appreciated by the bartending community and wanted my help to widen their target group. They needed include a professional audiens (bartenders), to a semi-profesional audiens that were really keen on looking like pros when they invite their "hipster" friends over on a Sunday for cocktails. This is a few examples of all I did with the brand:
The catalog is one of the most important communications chanels that Cask & Co. have. This format and design was greatly appreciated by bartenders and the public wen launched att Stockholm Beer & Whisky Festival.
The logotype evolved from old jeans logos, artisan brands, and a wish to explore the world.
The colors were chosen with ice, cocktails, and happiness in mind.
In addition to the new corp. profile, Cask & co. needed a website to help professionals and amature bartenders to find the best of what're available in the craft bartending world.

"Hey now, Think real hard before throwing this box away…Could you use it to store bottles that you don’t want the runners to see? Maybe that vintage tequila that you imported although you were not supposed to? Or you could just cut a handle on the top and use it as a bag for your bar tools, or you music lovers can always make a small portable speaker by just leaving your iPhone in the box or whatever…"
