Creative Distillery Logo

Marketing Collateral

Leave an impression with a classic tri-fold brochure, product packaging, event materials—the possibilities are endless.

Embryo Preservation Trust

ept-logo

Embryo Preservation Trust is a legal practice for anyone undergoing IVF and freezing embryos. We wanted to communicate ideas of security and perpetual preservation. The center of the icon suggests embryos in a microscope; the outer ring communicates perpetual motion, preservation of embryos over time. The icon also connotes a safe — a strong, spinning combination lock. That strength, however, lends comfort. The overall design elements create a pretty, welcoming environment.

Sweet & Sauer Branding and Packaging Design

sweet-sauer sweet-sauer-wild sweet-sauer-logo

Lauren Rhoades, the owner and muscle behind Sweet & Sauer, contacted Creative Distillery through Millsaps College's School of Business ELSEWorks consultancy. We developed distinctive branding and packaging to help launch her products onto store shelves. She's since been carried around Mississippi (including at two of our clients, Deep South Pops and Rainbow Co-op!) and is preparing applications for larger retailers.

We love opportunities to work with artisan food producers! The big, bright colors of the packaging capture the big, bright flavors of the kombucha, jarred goods, and spicy mustard.

Salsa’s Grille Menu

We love Mexican food, and this menu was a chance to design a love letter to Tex-Mex style and add some fun detailed touches in the menu header styles.

Mississippi Book Festival Website & Event Graphics

We were asked by the Festival Planners to produce a website and promotional materials for the inaugural Mississippi Book Festival. Because it was the first festival, the scope and demands of the project were quickly evolving.

As the scale of the festival grew, so did the number of materials required. Our Project Manager and Design team were able to scale their efforts to meet the challenge, and produce all the related t-shirt, signage, advertising, and promotional materials needed for the event.

The Festival event tripled the initial attendance projections, and will be a successful event for years to come!

Mississippi Cold Drip Coffee & Tea Logo and Packaging

ms-cold-drip

Ray, the business owner, had been making and selling this product based on his mother's devotion to cold-brewed coffee. Their old packaging was too masculine and off-trend for a small batch artisanal product. We created several approaches, ultimately settling on this one for its shelf appeal at a distance. Ray insisted on including a guitar, which led us to this engraving treatment. The product area is inspired by Mississippi craft quilts, and serves as a quick color system to differentiate between the offerings.

This is a great example of something that looks good but also has an immediate impact in sales. Ray reports that the phone is ringing off the hook from national retailers who want to carry this product. The system linking the products has been effective as well, and the products alongside the coffee have especially enjoyed increased sales.

This project was brought to us by the Millsaps College ElseWorks business consulting program. The team did all the work in locating and pricing the cool whiskey-style bottles.

Since launching the new packaging, MS Cold Drip’s monthly revenue is up 472% and they’re currently in the list of the top 5 products sold at Whole Foods Jackson.

Goodwill of MS Donation Truck

It's always cool to see our work big and driving around. We set out to create a look for this truck that's very friendly and polished to create a sense of positivity around the donation experience.

Upton Tire Pros Oil Flowchart

We conceived of this flowchart as a way to meet the customer where they are and lead them through the complexity of all the different oil change options available.

Governor’s Arts Awards

gaa-blend gaa-invites gaa-mix

In 2013, the awards celebrated Mississippi's literary excellence, featuring photography by Tom Joynt of William Faulkner's typewriter. In 2014, the awards celebrated the International Ballet Competition, which rotates through Jackson, Mississippi and world-class cities like Moscow. The 2015 awards feature live music photographs by James Patterson and celebrate Mississippi's live music performance culture, from venues to festivals.

Since 2013, we've designed event materials for the Governor's Arts Awards. We introduced a yearly system of medallions which allow us to keep consistency while addressing each year's theme.

High Noon Menu

For this menu redesign, High Noon's chefs came up with a dramatically simplified menu. We also worked to incorporate their new logo, colors, and typeface throughout. We worked particularly hard on the "Build Your Own" menu to make it easy to follow.
