Flying High - the new Loddon Brewery logo emphasises the dragonfly motif
and introduces a new font.
Chris Hearn (pictured above) and his wife Vanessa Hearn founded Loddon Brewery in 2002 at an old brick and flint grain store on the main site of Phillimore Farm, Dunsden Green, situated on the rural estate of Lord Phillimore. Chris and Vanessa were at the Bird in Hand, Sonning Common, on Thursday 2 February to welcome guests to the Loddon Brewery 10th anniversary celebration and brand re-launch.
Chris thanked Roger and Kay, proprietors of the Bird in Hand, Sonning Common, for closing their pub for the night in order to host the Loddon Brewery Re-Brand event.
Head brewer (Steve Brown) and his assistant (Jordan) are pictured above. Chris Hearn had just presented Steve with a bottle of Bruichladdich single malt whisky as a mark of appreciation for his work with the brewery especially in the earliest months when there was no cash available to pay a brewer wages.
The redesigned pump clips (above) emphasise the dragonfly motif. The brewery were looking for a clean and crisp branding which would appeal both to current drinkers and also appeal to the younger generation.
David Rogers (above) the owner and creative partner of We Are Pure,
a creative packaging agency based in Nottingham,
came up with the overall design strategy.
This was part of a three month project to design
new pump clips, bottle labels, beer mats, runners and glasses.
The new bottle labels (above) include a separate dragonfly motif on the neck of the bottle.

based in Leicester.
Stuart has supplied labels to Loddon Brewery for some time and put Chris Hearn
in touch with David Rogers of We Are Pure.
In turn, David put Chris in touch with Andrew of Nzime
who designed and built the new Loddon Brewery website.
Luke Hearn (above) is the Sales Manager for Loddon Brewery. Whilst at university he first
met Katie and John, who went on to form a video production company - A Star Media.
Recently, Luke suggested A Star Media should provide the videos for the new
Loddon Brewery website.
Katie and John (above) of A Star Media, based in Nottinghamshire, produced videos
featuring Chris Hearn and Steve Brown for each of the Loddon Brewery beers.
In addition there are videos
'What goes into our Loddon beer' and 'A quick tour of Loddon Brewery'.
The new website, designed by Nzime, emphasises social media channels
like twitter and facebook and includes videos
from A Star Media to get the personality of the brand across.
