THE ASSIGNMET

BRAND STRATEGY

Screwhouse is dedicated to live wood fire cooking smoked meats, where the wood gives off flavors that aren’t possible just anywhere. They serve Rockford, Illinois - also historically known as the screw city for its industrial identity (hence the brand name). To connect with the local community, we created a brand that represents both the authentic barbecue process and the industrial influence.

TYPOGRAPHY

Bold rugged hand drawn style paired with a clean structured look.

The brand's primary font was selected to have a rustic handmade style. They offer a Texas-style barbecue process to an industrial city called Rockford, Illinois. Their cooking style makes them distinct in the community they serve. Our goal was to connect both worlds so we chose a primary type that had a rugged personality to connect the wood they use to cook and the bold personality of an industrial community.

The secondary font was carefully chosen to provide balance for the brand by having a clean style that was legible on all materials.

COLOR SCHEME

Empowering confidence to boost self-esteem & self-love.

The simplicity of the brand's black and white color scheme was inspired by the key ingredients they use to season their meats, salt n' pepper. ​ The signature color of the brand is Butcher Peach - this color was handpicked by scanning in the butcher paper they use to serve their food. This color is used strategically to create a distinct contrast with the brand's black & white.
