Posted 20 Feb 2014 - No Comments - leave yours now!

“I came to Ken with just a rough brief and he was able to bring my ideas to life with consummate ease. Ken always met deadlines and was completely professional. His imagination and creativity were a real asset to this project. I continued to use his services throughout 2013 because I was so satisfied. Tens of thousands of people have since liked and shared his illustrations on social media, which is testament to the consistent quality of the work. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Ken to anyone.”

“After a frustrating prolonged period of time looking to finalise my brewery’s branding, I was put in touch with Ken. Soon after our initial meeting, Ken produced a definitive image for HellHound and has been immensely helpful in taking the brand forward. A top quality designer.”

Hellhound Brewery

Posted 01 Oct 2013 - No Comments - leave yours now!

Jack Carrol, CEO and founder of Hellhound Brewery, an artisan micro brewery in Suffolk, makes quality beers. He contacted me with the aim of taking his business to the next level.


 
I was tasked with stripping back his existing branding, and re-building it from the ground up. The challenge with this brief was always striking a balance. With a name as distinctive as ‘Hellhound’ it would have been easy to take the brand too far down a heavy metal/biker bar feel. It had to feel much broader and approachable.

Excerpt from the Hellhound design brief: “Primarily, we are committed to producing a range of beers using the finest natural ingredients and techniques for drinkers unwilling to compromise on flavour. We look to balance flavour and complexity with ‘drinkability’.

The name Hellhound was chosen as we wanted a name with some resonance to Suffolk – there is a myth of Black Shuck, a spectral dog terrorising the Suffolk coastline.

We would like to convey that our beers are different than what is often on offer at the local pub and why the consumer should be open to try more diverse and interesting styles of beer.”
