Redefine the playing field.

Client: Gravity Coffee.

We were commissioned to reposition the Burton Hollis coffee brand to help turn around a drop in market share. We designed a new, relevant, streetwise coffee brand that could compete head to head with their new competitors.

Our packaging, coffee-cups, signage, point of sale and marketing collateral created a brand high on attitude and cut-through.
