Working in collaboration with illustrator Matt Canning, Unity Brewing Co have refreshed and updated their core range of year round craft beers.
After a long and in depth reflection of their brewery, culture and values Unity Brewing Co have overhauled their existing label designs to better reflect this. Working with long term collaborator Matt Canning to create a new, fun and exciting view of the brewery and their beers including flagship Pale Ale Conflux, Collision IPA and Prinzen Lagerbier.
Founder and Head Brewer Jimmy Hatherley says: “I am so proud of the journey our business has taken over the past four years, and I have always strived to build upon and improve every aspect of the brewery – from our recipes, to the service in our taproom and of course how our beer is presented in the market. Matt Canning is an integral part of our team, and his work is key to communicating who we are as a company”
Matt Canning adds: “Continuing on from the soft 80s/90s nostalgic aesthetic we currently had for the core beers, we wanted to make the beer names part of the artwork rather than the artwork focus being just a background image with text overlaid – and importantly to really hone in what Unity is all about. I think what we’ve ended up with marries well with the can contents – soft, friendly and delicious!” Canning has produced artwork for the brewery for the past two and a half years including designs for their side project May Provisions and collaborations with breweries such as Left Handed Giant and their Creative Director James Yeo.
The new designs will be rolled out from the 10th of February and products available from Unity’s webshop (unitybrewingco.com) and at their onsite Brewery Kiosk in Southampton city centre.
