Hopen, a French hops company that supports the production and marketing of local, organic, and sustainable hops, partnered with Alba Food Marketing and our team to clarify and amplify its brand image. Our goal was to better represent Hopen's uniqueness and expand its leadership in the industry.
1. Analysis / Brand Positioning
We conducted an analysis of Hopen's competition and performed a SWOT analysis to identify the company's unique attributes and positioning. Our team worked with Alba Food Marketing to create a brand strategy that would give Hopen a unique voice and help the company build a community.
2. Creation of Brand Identity
Our team created a graphic style that centered around sustainability, with "fresh, local, and sustainable" as the guiding principles. We used warm, natural colors and illustrations to create a warm and accessible identity that instantly conveys a feeling of well-being and maturity.
To showcase Hopen's commitment to the people who contribute to the company's success, we created a photographic style that features real people and daily actions. We also took product photography into account to present the different product varieties.
Illustrations were essential in helping readers spot and understand key points, while infographics made technical processes easy to understand. We created a series of illustrations to represent the brand's main value propositions, as well as icons to represent different specifications and flavor profiles.
The 'sketch' style we used for the illustrations exudes an artisanal feel that aligns with the culture of hops and the artisanal process of beer. The typography merges with natural colors and organic illustrations to create a cohesive and memorable brand identity that ties together the themes of "fresh, local, and sustainable".
