Our friends at Top Hat, a Pittsburgh-based design and marketing firm (that has consulted for Hop Culture in the past), is looking to help a craft brewery establish its brand identity. In exchange for the opportunity (and maybe a little beer), they’re offering their services pro bono.
It’s an awesome initiative for a young brewery to establish their identity, which is one of the most important but often overlooked elements of the business when up-starts are consumed with worries over production, infrastructure, and compliance. In addition to developing a cohesive visual identity, Top Hat will work with the brewery on website design and development, packaging, and photography.
“We’re craft beer fanatics,” said Ben Butler, founder of Top Hat, who has tried 1,055 unique beers on Untappd. “It’s a prerequisite to join our team.”
Top Hat recently hired their first full-time creative director and completed a rebrand that included a new website and revamped office space. Their most successful project, which promoted the IndieGogo campaign Pittsburgh-based startup OnTheRocks, yielded $80,000 and a Public Relation Society of America (PRSA) Pittsburgh Renaissance Award -— the highest communications award in the region.
