The approach

Traditional cues were taken from the brewery’s Harrogate provenance, and found inspiration in the wonderful art deco rail travel imagery, which is so prevalent in Harrogate’s iconic architecture.

The brandmark itself is aligned with the traditional railway destination signs and language, inspired by the great rail posters of the 1930’s – ‘it’s quicker by ale’.
