D9 Brewing is a craft brewery in Cornelius, NC. At the time of our introduction, D9 had just moved into a significantly larger brewing facility with an eye towards distributing on a regional level. To grow larger than strictly local-awareness and compete with other regional breweries, D9 needed a holistic and sustainable set of brand solutions that they could utilize in a wide variety of situations.
Our team worked closely with D9’s management team to gather all existing assets and develop cohesive brand guidelines. Using these standards, we re-imagined and refreshed D9’s existing portfolio of beer labels and packaging, redesigned and rebuilt their website, and assisted their social media and other promotional efforts (including successful live events such as a chef-centric Scottish Beer Breakfast and a Halloween Bash featuring 13 brand-new brews).
In addition to refreshing their existing portfolio, we assisted D9 in conceptualizing and designing a wide range of new products for regional release and distribution, including Swell Rider Session IPA, Brown Sugar Brown Cow Brown Ale, Big Hakuna Double IPA, the Defying Gravity series, and the Systema Natura series (which won a GABF Gold Medal).
“After working with several other design firms we found Fuze design, and everything changed. Their team took the time to understand the details and nuances of our brand intentions and work with us to turn those into tangible products. We’re grateful for our amazing partnership and are excited for what the future holds.”
