Bear Republic Brewery | Brand Revival

Website Campaign
I rebranded Bear Republic Brewery, a family owned microbrewery, to give it a fresh look. I wanted to strengthen their personal interests through design. As a company, they love racing. I decided to embrace that through subtle racing elements throughout the brand. They are extremely proud to live and operate their business in California, through their name origins and usage of the bears for the face of their campaign. I decided to expand on their love for bears by creating individual mascots for each beer flavor.
