Glen Spean Brewing Co started crafting ales for the people of the west highlands from their 17th century barn steadings in early 2018. Situated in the beautiful Lochaber and the perfect place to build a brand from.
First visit to their highland base the passion to produce a range of simple drinkable beers was clear. Before sampling began I was first treated to a tour of the areas famous as well as not so traveled paths. This help us gained a true understanding of the stories and history of the people and places. All characteristics they wanted to bring to the packaging and overall brand.
Together we crafted an iconic mark that at first glance looks like the star of a compass, look closer you’ll see details of mountains, glens, mist and streams. All elements that form this wild and rugged landscape that the encapsulates Scotlands West Highlands. This mood was then further explored in the packaging with illustration of the brewery and pictograms highlighting each beer style.
