At The Distillery, we create successful brands for businesses with design which is seen, felt and experienced. As a full service agency of strategists, artists and craftspeople, we don’t just dream up big ideas, we bring them into the world with our own hands too.
Our approach to design is simple – we believe that great design starts with a brilliant idea. We work collaboratively with our clients to understand, discover and solve communication challenges.
By combining strategic thinking with intelligent design and precision craft, we create brand experiences that are truly authentic and tangible.
We believe in creating meaningful design with soul.
We look to the past, to help look forward.
We create lasting relationships with like-minded people.
“There can be no understanding between the hands and the brain unless the heart acts as mediator.”
–Maria, from the film Metropolis.
Your brand is the representation of all interactions with your organisation. To produce the most successful outcomes for our clients, we follow a strategic methodology, and love to collaborate closely with project stakeholders. With collaboration and a measured strategy, The Distillery can position your business with values that resonate with your audience who matter. We deliver our professional and creative services within the following flexible process:
To achieve your objectives, The Distillery concentrate on listening and understanding your circumstances. After identifying the business challenges, we take pride in telling you what you need to hear – not what you want to hear. A project proposal summarises different solutions The Distillery can offer.
The best outcomes are achieved with a measured grounding of knowledge and analysis. We conduct research about you, your market, industry and heritage. Analysis reveals insights which form the basis of a mutually developed strategy.
Think before you do. Research helps us define the communication problem, and in turn helps us create an informed design solution. Working collaboratively, we help create a unique and valuable position for your brand, that engages with your customers.
Where the magic happens. We completely obsess over the brief, creating brainstorms, moodboards and sketches. We explore, experiment and constantly push ideas to creatively answer the business problem.
Once we have a clear creative outcome, we push the idea even further to expand your brand’s physical and digital presence. We craft with our hands the tangible, final products. We build, test, and perfect everything before launching it to the outside world.
We prefer to create lasting relationships with the people we work with. Once the brand is launched, we help you along the way to ensure the brand grows along with, and ahead of the market.
