Capturing the spirit of DIY


From the systems they brew their beers in to the smoker they use for their grilled food series, everything about Great State Ale Works was meticulously handcrafted by the team themselves. So when they approached us for their branding, it only seemed fitting to give them an identity that represented their hands-on DIY approach.
We created a dynamic identity system with one constant element (the brand name), accompanied by an array of interchangeable symbols inspired by the brand. In keeping with this idea, we generated a library of symbols not only for their myriad beers but also for their various properties like Great State Grillworks. To further extend the idea of DIY we decided to create custom stamps that can be used interchangeably as needed along with exclusive stamping inks we provided to give all their products a dynamic yet unique look.

Small Batch Series


As part of their ongoing research with flavours and techniques in brewing, Great State Ale Works releases a monthly 200-litre ‘small batch series’ beer with innovative ingredients ranging from Kokum from Konkan to Gondhoraj limes from Assam. As a result of the gamble involved in these brews, the visual language followed suit-two dice paired with the infusing element of that brew.
