A YEAR IN REVIEW : 2015

//

What better way to ring in the new year than to celebrate the one that came before? 2015 was chock full of surprises, transformations, and incredible opportunities. We laughed, we cried, we grew (a lot)! Most importantly, we produced a ton of pretty remarkable work we couldn’t be more proud of. From Branding to Packaging to Point-of-Sale and Social Media, we made your favorite goods look good, on and off the shelf. See some highlights below.

 

SVEDKA

It was a treat helping SVEDKA launch two tasty new flavors in 2015: Grapefruit Jalapeno and 100°. BRIGADE worked to support the new flavors at every touchpoint – from case cards and recipe brochures to press releases and celebrity event materials. We were also proud to produce close to 1000 billboards and installations for SVEDKA’s national out-of-home campaign, and to concept and execute a bold, new social program #howtoSVEDKA

WELEDA

Our long-term design partnership with Weleda grew and flourished this year. BRIGADE was delighted to support the European skincare giant with product launches and large-scale packaging projects across North America, including the production of Limited Edition Holiday packaging featured on The Dieline.

FERONIA FORESTS

Local conservation hero Feronia Forests came to us with a whole family of mission-driven sub-brands that over the course of 2015 have become a part of our own family. We created a simple, powerful website that illustrates not only Feronia Forests’ mission but also its overarching vision to create new, versatile forms of sustainable conservation.

VERTICAL WATER

2015 was a truly rewarding year for the BRIGADE + Vertical Water partnership. We saw all of our hard work on this sustainable beverage brand come to life, from a new logo and identity to a new website and brand collateral and everything in between. As we march on into the new year, we’re so proud to help build brands that build a better world.

JGS LIFECARE

Local eldercare institution JGS Lifecare came to us just last year with a brand overhaul assignment. 2015 was the year a new name, new logo and new brand identity developed by BRIGADE debuted, along with a beautiful new website that gave the 103 year-old non-profit a new lease on life.

RAMBLEWILD

Developing a radically amazing website, brochure and poster campaign for Ramblewild has been nothing short of an adventure. Our Social Media work with Ramblewild and other brands like Kim Crawford and Ruffino Wines has expanded tremendously over the course of this year and we’re ready take it to the next level in 2016.

ELLIE KAI

2015 marked the beginning of a new partnership with Ellie Kai. BRIGADE created a new look and feel for the custom clothing pioneer that has transformed their web presence and POS collateral. We’re so excited to continue supporting this brand as it grows in 2016.

SERPENT’S BITE

It was a blast to help launch this fiery new brand of apple-cider flavored whisky. The BRIGADE team helped bring the Serpent’s Bite concept to life with pen and ink serpent drawings, a show-stopping bottle and shipper, plus a robust suite of of on- and off-premise point of sale materials. Additionally, BRIGADE created a brand book and a library of assets for use across multiple brand touchpoints. Look for our badass bottle on shelf at your local liquor store and prepare to #BITETHENIGHT
