Ardent / Reservoir Whiskey Collab

If we do say so ourselves, we've gotten pretty good at wine / spirit / craft beer packaging lately, so we were excited to be given the opportunity to design the label for an exciting collaboration between our client, Ardent Craft Ales, and Reservoir Distillery.

Ardent shipped Reservoir IPA, which Reservoir distilled into a spirit. Reservoir then aged the spirit in a variety of barrels new and used. Thanks to the IPA base, you might catch some hop notes in the finished spirit.

Although our design do not make the final cut, we're still proud of how it turned out.

Trapezium Brewing Co.

Our first salvo of branding, design and packaging for Trapezium Brewing Company. Our team has worked for many months, beginning with comprehensive strategic positioning, target research, market and competitive analysis. We then partnered closely with the leadership at Trapezium to help identify and define their brand DNA and brand point of view.

At its core, Trapezium stands for boldness, optimism, individualism, grit – they believe in everyone's ability to Craft Your Own Luck.

Often in advertising, a new assignment or client is a brief opportunity to try your hand at steering the brand's ship. With Trapezium, A For Adventure had the honor of helping to build the ship in its entirety. A new confident voice in Virginia's craft beer renaissance.

Branding Trapezium was a lesson that there is no cookie-cutter, no shortcut or package deal to building a great brand. We built a full system of matching and relating visual touchpoints, handcrafted and suited for each unique application.

We'll be posting more of our interior and exterior design of the brewhouse and beer garden, as well as a myriad of other touchpoints as they are produced.
